Just a few days ago, a new venture was started by the Brewers! Daulton and Samantha Brewer of May Hill Farms in Stamps, AR are now growing Christmas Trees! Just the other day, they planted 500 seedling size trees at their farm just a few miles north of Stamps. They and their children have been doing homestead-style farming for several years down in Lafayette County, and have grown produce that has been sold at the Lafayette County and Hempstead County Farmer’s Markets, from sweet corn in the summer to pumpkins in the fall. They have now decided to chase another new dream of bringing joy to families during the Christmas season for years to come, as well. The varieties of Christmas trees they have planted thus far are Virginia Pine and Leyland Cypress along with a few Notabilis, also. People will be able to come to the farm and walk through the rows of trees to pick the perfect one for their family. It will then, and only then, be cut down fresh, baled, and loaded for them when they are ready to leave. But they may not want to leave right away, as they will be welcome enjoy other activities, walk around and see the farm animals, visit the little country farm store, drink hot chocolate, eat s’mores, take a tractor-pulled hayride, and more. They plan to open this coming December 2018, even though they’re first rotation of trees will not be ready for another 2 years. There will, however, be imported fur trees from which visitors will be able to choose. This is something that Daulton and Samantha hope to pass down to their kids, who already love living on a farm where they can milk cows, take care of chickens, roam the woods, etc, and who also love the idea of eventually having a few thousand Christmas trees on the farm, too! The Brewers are hoping that this new venture will give families in the area an opportunity to start new traditions, or re-kindle old ones, that the whole family can come and enjoy.
