Fun Family Experience
The Wickerd Farm
Jack and I married in 1987, our first son was born in 1989 and our second was born in 1991 which is the same year we planted our first Monterrey Pine trees.
In 1994, working out of a little green shed, Jack and I, and the Kids ( I had to haul the kids out with us ha ha), we sold a grand total of 50 Trees. : - ) We thought we were hot stuff! Every January-February we plant more Monterrey Seedlings. We Replace that ones that were harvested and add on a new section as needed.
By 1995, we had joined The California Christmas Tree Grower's Association, and The National Christmas Tree Association. We'd gone to a trade show and bought our first large piece of equipment. It's called Lil' Shakee (TM), and what it does is it shakes about 90 % of the dead needles off the trees. Since it is normal for the needles on the inside of the Monterrey Pine to die, we felt this was a must have piece of equipment. We still use Lil' Shakee, and have since bought another one.
Another good thing happened to us in 1995. Jack and I were tending to the Tree sales, when an older couple pulled into the farm. We went out and greeted them. They were so very nice. They told us, that they were driving down the road and saw that we were a new Mom & Pop Tree Farm. : - ) They were retired Christmas Tree growers, and they gifted us with our first flocking machine. I don't know who they were, but I have to thank them for their kindness in giving us that flocking machine. It's received a lot of use over the years, and made a lot of people happy too. : - )
By 1997, we had progressed to making our own wreaths out of fresh greens. We leave them undecorated so our customers can decorate them how they want to.
