Holiday Season on Our Farm

From Thanksgiving until a few days before Christmas, I put away my paints and brushes to help with our U cut Christmas tree farm, Victorhill Farm. The art studio is transformed into a wreath and gift shop where we sell wreaths and ornaments. A scent of pine and cedar fills the air from the wreaths as we make them. Every year families from all around the Portland area come to our farm to select their holiday tree.  It's such a happy time of year and all who show up here are ready for a tree cutting adventure in the fresh country air and plenty of good times. We are now closed for the season, so I finally have time to show you some of the highlights over the last few weeks.
