SHARON — Snyder Tree Farm is a family-owned business located at 648 Medina Road.

Owner David Snyder said the business started as a farm in 1903 and has evolved over several generations. The business transitioned to include a tree farm at one time, and today it offers landscaping materials, lawn furniture, storage buildings and more, according to Snyder.

Landscaping materials available at Snyder Tree Farm include mulches such as organic wood mulch, hardwood bark mulch and double ground dyed brown or black mulches.

“Mulch breaks down and adds organic material to soils in gardens,” said Snyder. “We also have a Sweet Peet premium mulch for flower and vegetable gardens, which enhances the soil and improves plant health.”

Various composts, including mushroom compost, as well as topsoil, straw and hay also are sold at Snyder Tree Farm.

Snyer said these products can be delivered for a fee or picked up by customers.

The business also offers sawmill services. Snyder said he is the fifth generation in the family to offer this service, which first began with the use of a steam engine. The sawmill creates lumber from logs brought in by customers.

Snyder Tree Farm also sells Christmas trees during the holiday season and seasoned hardwood firewood all year around.

In addition, Snyder Tree Farm is a licensed dealer for Alpine storage sheds. The units range in size from 64 square feet to 512 square feet and come in various styles. Standard features include double-door entries, windows and siding, and a variety of options are available. The structures can be built on site, but prebuilt structures also are available. Snyder said he also can custom build storage units for customers.

In addition, four types of chicken coops are sold at the business.

The lawn furniture sold at Snyder Tree Farm is made from long-lasting cypress wood, according to Snyder.

Snyder Tree Farm added a farm fresh produce stand three years ago offering various items throughout the seasons. Snyder said the offerings begin in June with fresh strawberries, followed by vegetables in summer as they become available. He added the season is running late this year.

Snyder said he grows 90 percent of the produce he sells, but he also offers produce from local farmers. In the fall, apples, cider, corn, cornstalks, pumpkins and mums are sold.

Snyder Tree Farm is open Monday through Saturday  from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and is closed Sundays.
