Well, once again the year has flown by in a hurry and we find ourselves right in the middle of the fall season with the holidays fast approaching! We hope that each of you have had a good 2015 so far and have enjoyed each and every moment you’ve shared with family and friends!
It is with very mixed emotion that we are sending this mailing. We wanted to let you all know that we have sold all of our Christmas trees and will not be opening J&D Tree Farm again for choose and cut business. This was not an easy decision. However, due to the size of our trees and many other factors, when a potential sale of all the trees became an option, after much thought, prayer and consideration, we decided this was the best decision for us at this time. We have been in the choose and cut business for 15 years and many of you have been loyal customers from the very beginning, while referring many of your family and friends. There are no words to express our deep gratitude to you for your loyalty to us. We have enjoyed developing friendships and seeing many of your children grow up over the past 15 years. You all have been instrumental in allowing us to be able to continue our business for this period of time and we are so very grateful.
However, we now find ourselves at another crossroads in our lives and are excited about new paths we will be taking in the future. As many of you are aware, Jim is continuing with planting and cultivating his blueberries for a “pick your own” business and we hope that many of you will come back with your families to visit us when the blueberries are ready for harvest and enjoy Summer on the mountain (which is indeed different from the winter weather you have endured for many years!) We will keep you updated about the developments with the blueberries on our website, so stay tuned!
We encourage you to visit the Watauga County Christmas Tree Association or the NC Christmas Tree Association to choose another great local farm to come visit this year, as well as Exploreboone.com for other family fun activities to enjoy when you continue your family’s tradition of coming to the High Country to find your perfect Christmas tree while making memories to last a lifetime.
We send blessings to you and yours during this holiday season and for each and every day in the years ahead!
The J & D Tree Farm Family.
