Thought we'd share a few photos from our friends at Walden Farm in Walden, Vermont. Couldn't ask for a prettier setting for our cut holly than in an 18th Century farmhouse filled with love. You can see more of this house in the Nov/Dec issue of This Old House magazine, but frankly, the homeowners know how to stage the scene a whole lot better than the magazines stagers do!
Our 2014 holiday season has come to a close. We would like to thank all of our Mill Creek Holly Farms customers for making this our most successful season ever! We are looking forward to our "long winters nap", but will be busy tending to the winter needs of our 1500 holly trees! Most people don't realize that our crop needs more attention during the winter months than it does during the rest of the year! Holly is susceptible to diseases that live in the soil and must be treated every 10-14 days during the wet season so those diseases don't spread up the trees and harm them. So, once again, many thanks to all of our terrific customers. We look forward to posting YOUR photos in our 2014 gallery of photos, or you can upload your own! We love seeing how creative our customers are with their products and enjoy seeing how you display our beautiful Northwest holly!
"Thank you soooooooooooo
much! I already got a big thank you from a former Oregonian who loves
holly and loved the little tree. He will share it with his wife who is in
an Alzheimer's facility!" J Gunn
Thanks to another of our fantastic customers for sending this note this morning! "I received your shipment of holly today and had to send this message. When I opened the box I found the most beautiful boughs of holly I've ever seen. I am 77 years old and I enjoy Christmas as I did in my youth. When I was young holly was common during the holidays but somehow it seemed to disappear. Your holly is breathtakingly beautiful. If I weren't so old I'd come to Oregon just to see your farm but I don't walk very well anymore. I feel very fortunate to have found you on the net. I appreciate your effort to grow this beautiful holly. Thank You - " KE Gronas Captkeg - we are blessed by you and all of our wonderful customers! Wish you could come by for a tour!
