Selling trees for Generations

Lyndonville- On top of a hill in Lyndonville sits a tree farm that has been run by generations.


    The Young Family Tree Farm is been run by 5 generations. It all started back in 1920 when the first of the family came down from Hadley,Quebec on a train with trees. Each generation has passed down the tradition, and all do something on the farm to help. The kids make hot chocolate and grandfather tends to the trees... bethany makes the wreaths... but they all help sell them.

"Its the kind of life we enjoy living,we try and keep things maybe a little more simple and its good to work with your family most of the time its a great a oppertunity for kids to sell chrismass trees its been fun for my kids to get involved they do hot chocolate they like to make wreaths (and its yummy too) its yummy too." Co-owner Bethany Young said.

Bethney hope people bring their whole families to come out and cut down trees.
