We have come through a wonderful summer with plenty of precipitation that our plants enjoyed. Pumpkins are harvested, fields are plowed, fall transplanting and harvesting are taking place and the Christmas tree fields are preped and ready for the Choose & Cut Christmas season to begin.
On a personal note, Cim & I are excited that our son Matt, daughter Bethany, and 3 grandsons are moving back to Michigan in November! Matt will be starting a new church plant in Grandville, MI with his good friend Josh Tovey. We are excited that they will experience the Christmas tree farm festivities for the first time ever. They move here from Arizona and are looking forward to a Michigan Christmas with lots of snow... at least the grandsons are! Our son Branden and daughter Katelyn just purchased their first home in Lynchburg, VA. Branden is busy as a financial advisor at Merill Lynch and Katelyn is in her final year of grad school and will graduate in May with a Physical Therapy degree. It will be good to have a doctor in the family!
We look forward to another year of harvesting seedlings, transplants, Christmas trees, and pumpkins and invite you to visit us on the farm. We appreciate the faithful business you have given us and want to continue to grow the very best products that can be offered.
