After a frosty morning walk we found there are some beautiful trees still standing. At the back of the far field, the adventurous will find some blue spruce that have been passed by unnoticed by many! And Just below the parking area, right under your nose are fantastic fir trees. We have another beautiful day on tap and plenty of wreaths and holiday arrangements we made fresh this week! Stop by and join us for another great December day!
In the lead up to our opening day on November 27th we have been hard at work hand making a variety of holiday wall baskets, porch pots and table arrangements. We match unique baskets and containers with the freshest materials so you can deck the halls with the sights and smells of the season.
Unlike the big retail outlets, our arrangements don’t arrive on a semi truck. We harvest the majority of our materials from the farm and carefully source the rest. Using fraser fir, fresh cut winterberry, cedar, juniper and pine – we make each arrangement to be like taking a walk on the farm.
Actually – the blue spruce this year are really blue – practically glowing blue! But it was too good to pass up a Miles Davis reference 😉 For 2015, we have an abundance of Colorado blue spruce that are anywhere from 6 – 10 feet tall. They hold their needles well, you can practically hang lead weights from their branches and they really know how to light up a room. We’ve been kicking ourselves for not entering one in the Big – E this year for judging, but then again, it only means there there’s a chance it will be there for you when you come by this December!
Our thanks go to all the families that made this year memorable. One of the most enjoyable aspects of the year is getting to know our customers as friends, neighbors and family. We appreciate the community of great people that share their tradition with us!
And here’s to all the generous hot chocolate sippers out there that helped us reach our goal of over $700 dollars for Doctors Without Borders – What a feat! Thank you all so much, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
