For John and Cynthia Curtis, the owners of Perfect Christmas Tree Farm, it's 'tree love.' This husband and wife team run the 40-acre farm together. He works the land, planting shaping and harvesting the trees. She creates special events and farm tours and edits a small magazine for Christmas tree farmers.
The Curtis' decorate their 1780's stone farmhouse in grand Colonial style for the Christmas season. It is open to tour during the holidays and for special events. It is a small part of the William Penn Land Grant of 1681. The historic piece of land has always been a farm.
Before Christmas trees, beef cattle grazed here. Exotic evergreens that are rarely grow in NJ benefit from the farm's loam soil that is rich in organic matter. Farmer John grows more than 40 varieties of Christmas trees.
Perfect Christmas Tree Farm considers all aspects of the Christmas tree business, from planting seedlings to recycling discarded trees after Christmas. Preserving the rich land and the historic house is the Curtis' mission.
