COVID-19 affected all businesses differently. Many saw a loss in sales, but Hoover said Christmas tree farms saw an uptick in sales. He attributed this to the lockdown causing people to want to get outside in any way they could, that included Christmas tree shopping.

“Our industry is really doing well; it’s thriving and people want a real Christmas tree. It seemed like COVID brought it out. People just want to get outside and they like something that’s real and organic, you know the green concept. They like all that,” Hoover said.

The Ol’ Dairy Barn Christmas Tree Farm sells a variety of pine and fir Christmas trees, along with wreaths and other holiday décor.

Like most Christmas tree farms, you have until Christmas eve to get your tree.
