Welcome Pamela, Grant, and boys!

Pam and Grant MartinA 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.

Spring planting

Planting Christmas trees at Cedar HillIt’s that time of year again…spring planting of beautiful little Christmas tree transplants!! Paul drove the tractor, Hannah and Ria were on the planter wearing rainsuits to keep dry, and Devon kept us supplied with trees. Levi and Devon had a tough job straightening the trees and tamping them firmly into the soil.

Grant and Pamela Martin will be moving to our farm in August and are very involved in decision making. Grant came for the weekend to learn the planting process and he was a huge help with all jobs. We probably ate too many goodies this weekend. Emmy’s brownies, cookies, and butter tarts were a real treat!!

Now we need a good rainfall to nourish the trees!
