The 112-acre farm stretching across Route 512 South of Bath has carried the Unangst name since the 1850's. The farm began as a dairy and grain farm and as economic times have changed, the farm had to change in order to keep the family farm alive and support the Unangst Family. Roger Unangst and his family are currently working the soil. Roger is the sixth-generation of Unangst farmers and his son Kody hopes to be the seventh-generation to farm the land.
When Roger completed college (PSU - Agronomy) he realized there was no way to make a living on 112 acres of land. That's when he started planting Christmas Trees. The first Christmas Trees went in the soil in 1984……approx 500 were planted that first year. Today, approx. 8,000+ trees are planted each Spring. In 1999, the farm experience was expanded to include the Fall Season which includes a 6 acre and one acre corn maze, a couple pumpkin patches, hayrides, petting zoo, corn building, farm market and concession stand.
We are thankful for the opportunity God has given us to be farmers. Growing up on a farm has been a wonderful positive experience for the Unangst children. Kody and Tori have always be found working the farm with Dad and Mom ever since they could walk. Kody does multiple jobs on the farm and is learning everything about the family business in order to take over when Dad and Mom finally retire. Daugher Tori is a cashier during our Pumpkin and Tree Seasons, but her life goal is to become a Psychiatrist. We hope see will always be around to assist on weekends during our Pumpkin/Tree Seasons. Our children have grown up knowing their work is valued, their family bonds are strong and a good work ethic is of great importance.
Unangst Tree Farms will forever be farmland. In 1999, the farm was Preserved through the Northampton County Farmland Preservation. The Unangst know the importance of preserving land. For without farms, we have NO FOOD.
