Tis the season for feeling festive, and we all know that we could use more good vibes right now. With the stresses and fears that 2020 has added to us all, a little extra cheer is what the holiday season needs!
We think the best way to lift the spirits and ring in the holiday season is by adding some farm-fresh evergreens to your home. And, it starts with the front door! A beautiful wreath is just the trick and one way you can do this is by having a farming family ship one right to your door. Lynch Creek Farm began as a hobby farm in 1980 and has blossomed into a successful small family business that is driven by previous generations of hard work and a deep love for handmade evergreen products. They initially started with an organic vegetable farm and sold produce at the Shelton Farmers' Market. In 1984, they started selling goods at the Olympia Farmers' Market, the 2nd largest farmers' market in Washington State, where they continue to sell today. Today, they are helping us all feel the joys of the season by directing the business into creating handcrafts – fresh evergreen wreaths, garlands, centerpieces, and other Christmas decor sustainably. Lucky for us, they can ship it to any of us - anywhere in the USA!
If you’re feeling like you’d like to pop into a farm yourself and pick out your own tree, well, we have that for you, too! Here are some terrific family-owned Tree Farms that are ready for you, awaiting your visit to pick out the perfect tree for your home. A lot of my family has gone to the artificial trees, and I understand the ease of it, but I still attest that there’s nothing better than a real, fresh, aromatic Christmas tree to bring joy into our hearts, and into our homes.
