Steve and Judy Penland met in 1968 and married shortly after in 1970. Steve had planted his first Christmas trees in 1966 and they began selling trees in 1972. They loved working every day at the Christmas tree farm with their four children. Steve and Judy “retired” after 47 years from growing and selling Christmas trees. They continue a small operation of Ball and Burlap landscape trees.
Steve and Judy’s daughter, Allison and her husband Martin, planted their first Christmas trees several years before her parent‘s retited to be able to continue the family tradition. Allison, Martin and their three children, Michael, Kayleigh and Matthew, are excited to carry on her parents’ legacy.
