Pete passed away peacefully at home on July 6, 2018.
Many of you who are close with our family knew Pete, Jim’s brother. He was a dear brother to us and such a big part of our family. You couldn’t help but love him once you met him. He was an active participant in Special Olympics in Columbia County.
Pete, we love you, and we will miss you at the tree farm this year.
We are so blessed to have a new grandbaby in our family, and our first granddaughter! Our son Jeremy and his wife Laura (who does an amazing job of running our gift shop!), were blessed with a beautiful baby girl, Andree Belle Marquardt, who was born on July 5th, 2018. She is as cute as a button and will be helping out mama in the gift shop this year.
We’ve added an update to our FAQ’s page about this. We get a lot of requests from professional photographers who would like to use our tree farm for photos. While we are honored, at this time we do not allow professional photographers to do photo sessions during Christmas Tree season.
