Wells Family Christmas Tree Farms
My husband and I married in 2001 and had our son in 2005. We purchased 12 acres in 2013 and built our dream home on it in 2014. For our first Christmas in our new home, I wanted a real Christmas tree and I wanted a BIG one! So we donated our 13 year old pre-lit artificial tree and set out to find the perfect real tree. We visited a tree farm in town and we (my husband) got to cut it down ourselves (himself)! From the moment I stepped foot on that farm and got a whiff of that mesmerizing pine fragrance, memories from my childhood Christmases came flooding back! I fell in love with Christmas all over again!
Walking around that tree farm, watching the family working the farm and the other families searching for their perfect tree, I had this insane thought: WE COULD DO THIS. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t a ‘this looks so easy, I bet we could do this’ thought. I kept this thought to myself because we had just purchased land and built a house so we were experiencing lots of new financial stresses and I didn’t want to add to it. And Christmas Tree farming, are you kidding me?? Where in the world did that thought come from? So we loaded up our freshly-cut tree and headed home. About 30 seconds into the drive my husband looked at me and said, “We could do that.” I couldn’t believe my ears. “I THOUGHT THE SAME THING”, I yelled! And that was it! That was Thanksgiving weekend of 2014 and in January of 2015 we were attending our first horticulture conference with other Christmas Tree farmers and were official members of the Oklahoma Christmas Tree Association. Twelve hours after that my husband was a board member. One year after that he was the vice president and we planted our first 150 trees. Folks, when our family agrees on something, we go ALL IN.
So here we are! Our vision for this farm is to create memories and traditions for families to pass down from generation to generation and we want a front row seat! We are so blessed and so excited to be a part of your Christmas tradition and we can’t wait to meet you!
