Wow! This pic was taken a while ago - in fact, it was taken the very first year Mike started 'growing' the tree farm.
That first year, he planted 3000 Christmas tree saplings by hand. Yes, that's right - BY HAND.
Of course, things are done a little more efficiently (and a little more smarter) these days!
We're really looking forward to this weekend when we'll be hosting the first ever Wertz Family Tree Farm Shindig - featuring Raised by Possums (live band).
Lots of friends, family and colleagues coming out to the farm to enjoy the farm life a little and have a good time.
We officially open for business this year - the weekend after Thanksgiving - offering pre-cut Christmas trees (several varieties) as well as home-made wreaths with handmade bows - made from scratch by none other than Mike Wertz himself --- I kid you not!!! And these wreaths last a LONG time and smell so so so good and Christmasy!!
