The Corkum family has run Corkum Tree Farm for over 20 years. Alice, John and James are deeply involved in the day to day operations of the farm and landscape business.
Alice grew up on a nursery and Christmas tree farm and is the third generation in her family to be involved in the nursery business. She has always loved working with plants and while she is involved in all aspects of the business, she does a great deal of the interfacing with customers and has a strong background in landscape design. She also can be found caring for the potted plants on a daily basis and is no stranger to mowing or tilling on the tractor. She also has primary responsibility for the paperwork and ordering of plant liners and Christmas trees.
While John did not grow up on a farm, he did come from a small rural town and has always enjoyed working outside. With over 20 years of experience in all facets of growing plants and landscape work, he has a great deal of knowledge that only comes from hands-on experience.
John does a great deal of the retail landscape work, including bed preparation, planting, mulching and wall building. In addition, he is involved with the day to day maintenance of the farm and equipment.
