OSKALOOSA, Iowa (KYOU) – Thanksgiving officially kicks off the holiday season! And Diane and Andrew Davis, owners of the Scotch Hill Christmas Tree Farm, are ready for all the holiday action.
The two are preparing for a big opening day at their farm in Oskaloosa, Iowa, after a sold-out weekend last year.
“Last year has been our busiest year yet. That first weekend, we sold all the trees we could handle to make sure we had trees for this year. With the Covid, families were able to go out and participate. Last year it took us by surprise, we were open and closed in three days, ”said Diane of the absorbed season.
This comes at a time when many are calling a national shortage of Christmas trees. However, this does not appear to be the case according to the Davis family.
They say that while they are not immediately affected by the shortage, they know of other growers here in Iowa who are trying to supplement their supply by saying: number of weeks and now it has been reduced to a maybe be two weekends due to increased demand also.
If you want to hang your tree up for the holidays, the Davis family will open at 10 a.m. on Black Friday until the Christmas trees last.
