Pam and Grant were thrilled to pose for a picture with this delightful family who bought the first cut your own tree of 2016.
It was also the first cut your own tree they sold! Many more happy customers have come to cut their trees since then.
A year has flown by and Paul, Devon, and I want to welcome the new owners of our farm. Pam, Grant, Todd, Neil, Adam, and Graham are now officially the new Christmas tree farmers at Cedar Hill.
Paul and I have moved to Almonte and are enjoying this lovely little town. Pam and Grant have been very involved in getting ready for the 2016 Christmas season.
The trees are looking beautiful and Christmas giftware is arriving shortly. Hannah, Levi, and Mara have been pruning with Paul. We have kept a good supply of Popsicles in the shop freezer…a great treat at the end of a hot day.
The Christmas shop will be opening in just three months with with wonderful decorations and fresh green wreaths.
We were pleased to host a tour with farmers from the Netherlands today for two reasons. First, we enjoy every opportunity to show our beautiful Christmas tree farm to visitors…a great way to promote our “Grown in The Ottawa Valley” business.
The second reason is very personal. I enjoyed using my Dutch to welcome and speak with this wonderful enthusiastic group. Yes, it was a little rusty and peppered with some Canadian words, but it was OK!
The next stop will be our neighbours at Fulton’s Pancake House and Sugar Bush for a tour and delicious lunch.
