Jeff and Cecilia Brown, C and J Christmas Trees

Multi-Purpose Building
Grant Award: $6,000

Jeff and Cecelia have added a 60′ x 30′ building to accommodate customers of their Choose & Cut Christmas Tree operation.

The building will give their business a much needed heated area for customers to get out of the weather, pay for their tree, and buy additional holiday items. There will also be the opportunity to sell hot chocolate, warm cider, soft drinks, and variety of snacks.

Since they are currently working out of 10′ trailer, the new building will make their work more efficient and provide their customers with an enjoyable agritourism experience to keep them coming back year after year.

With the addition of this building, the farm hopes to increase sales and hire additional seasonal employees.
