Dear JP Landscape Tree Farm fans — We have a lot to be grateful to you for this past holiday season, so be a collective dear and read our thank-you list, won’t you? You’ll be glad you did.
*Thank you for coming to our farm this season and buying our trees. In the 13 years we’ve been in operation, 2013 was by far our most successful season EVER. Because of YOU.
*Thank you for bringing your families out, despite the extra chilly temps, to hunt for that special tree. Getting small children (and some uncooperative adults) ready for freezing weather can feel like preparing for a NASA launch. We know what a chore it can be to bundle everyone up in giant coats, gloves, hats, and boots. Throw in packing snacks and making sure everyone has gone to the bathroom, and the whole shuttle mission can be thrown off in the blink of an eye.
*Thank you for letting us take photos of your beautiful families and giving us your permission to use those photos on Facebook. (You really are a stunning bunch!)
*Thank you for your patience with our sometimes over-eager, over-achieving and aggressively affectionate Farm Dog as he escorted you around the field while you searched for your tree, or as he acted as security detail while you enjoyed a s’more at the fire pit, or as he banged into your shins with his Cone of Shame. (And to the nice lady who happened to have had a glove snatched and then returned all slobbery to her several minutes later, an extra special thanks to you for laughing at Farm Dog rather than scolding him.)
*Thank you for giving us a chuckle with your DIY tree-tie-down job on your luggage-rack-less vehicle. When you attempted to enter your vehicle and found your doors to be tied shut because you put the rope through your open windows to secure your tree to the roof, be assured that we were laughing *with* you, not *at* you. (Okay, maybe a little bit at you.)
*Thank you for your endless parade of smiling faces and kind words, your enthusiasm for and engagement with our social media campaign (all the likes and positive comments!), for gathering ’round the fire pit, writing letters to Santa and making pine cone bird feeders, and eating s’mores and slugging down hot cocoa and cider.
*Thank you most of all for supporting this local family-run Christmas tree farm. It has truly been our pleasure serving you and we wouldn’t be here without your support and kindness.
We hope you and your families were blessed with love, laughter,joy, and plenty of helpings of the four food groups — candy, candy canes, candy corns, and syrup – this past holiday season.
