Little Elves at Work

Grand central, or should I say “green central” Yup, that’s a glass of wine. I know what you’re thinking – but hey – I’m working hard and can’t keep stopping to refill. 

Cheers, Sally & Bruce :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! We hope the weather won’t affect your plans too drastically. For Christmas tree farms, we’re lucking out with a good opening weekend. We’ll open the Friday after Thanksgiving and every weekend thereafter until sold out, 9 a.m. until dusk. You can pick out your tree, grab a beautiful wreath or kissing ball, maybe an organically raised chicken, some jam for yourself or a friend. Trees are $40 and include shaking, and, if you choose, wrapping. Complimentary cookies and cocoa!   We look forward to seeing you soon!
Cheers :)

Missing Sugar Bear

Yesterday we lost Sugar Bear. We knew he was sick when he arrived one year ago, but didn’t realize how bad he was. We (Vets and us) did our best to heal him, but….Cinnamon is taking it real hard and missing his brother very much.

Dreaming of a White Christmas

My oh my how time goes by. Hard to believe another Christmas is almost here. Thanks to everyone who visited us last year! We were a little busier, so we didn’t get as many great family photos. Check below to see if you made our album. Let me know if you’d like me to email your photo to you. And, thank you for signing our “guest book” and the wonderful comments – they make our day!

We’ll be open this weekend, November 15 & 16 if you’d like to swing by and pick up a wreath or kissing ball, tag a tree, grab a delicious organically raised chicken for dinner, jam and jam gift packs and more.

We’ll also be open next weekend selling wreaths, kissing balls and more. Official tree sales start Friday, Nov. 28th and every weekend thereafter until selling out. Hours are 8 a.m. until 4ish (dusk). Choose and cut your organically raised Christmas tree for only $40. Have it shaken, and, if you choose, wrapped. No worries about bringing chemically sprayed trees into your home with Collopy’s Christmas Trees!

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Cheers, Sally & Bruce :)

Quebec Agritourism Trip

I had a fabulous time in the Eastern Townships of Quebec recently on a two-day Agritourism visit. Visited six diverse farms, learned about their operations, and peppered them with questions about their Agritourism operation. Also got to know some Vermont farmers, toss ideas around and discuss how we can grow Agritourism in Vermont.  Bruce and I look forward to adding Farm to Table dinners next year as part of Collopy Family Farm offerings.

Many thanks to the sponsors of this trip: Farm-Based Education Network, Shelburne Farms, UVM Extension, Vermont Agency of Agriculture Food and Markets, Vermont Department of Tourism and Marketing, Vermont Farms Association and Vermont Fresh Network.
