John Paul and Rainey Houston bought the farm in 1999 with a dream of raising the kids on the land.
We as a family always loved Christmas and Christmas trees, so in the first years there, we got part of the farm planted in christmas trees. As the kids grew up we tried a lot of different kinds of farming.
We raised chickens, turkeys, hogs, and cattle.
Ultimately the Fraser Fir Chistmas trees is what really took off, so that is the main focus now. By 2011 John William, the oldest son, wanted to work the tree business full time and find its potenial in the christmas tree market.
So that year John paul and his son began a business partnership and after three successful years together John Paul sold the opperation to John William. Much of the family still work together.
