The weekend after Thanksgiving had a great start. People came out in shorts to find their perfect Christmas tree. By Sunday we were in rain gear including people with strollers! We had to add our fourth picture board so that everyone's pictures could be displayed. This was a good thing! We've had families come out with new additions to their families and we've had families come out with some sadness of losses to their families. On Saturday we had a wife come out with her baby sharing her story that her husband was in Afghanistan and he hasn't seen their baby yet. Her tree was a treat from us thanking her for the sacrifice she's made of being without her husband and raising their child, but also a thank you from the Barker's Christmas Tree Farm to her husband for protecting our freedom. I'm sure as the season carry's on we will be able to share more stories from out tree families. Until then, God bless!
Can you believe it, Friday is opening day. Our Frasers are being delivered today. They will be the freshest we've ever had. The trees in the field are beautiful. The temperatures for the weekend sound great. The pictures have been hung on our "picture wall" for everyone to come find. Even if you're allergic to Christmas trees we have handmade wreaths perfect for the outdoors. Dale spend hours on these and for the price you can't get a prettier wreath. We are very excited about this year and can't wait for everyone to come out.
