Reuse. Recycle. Rejoice:
About the Barn at Champan Lane
When Kriss and Carol bought the property on Chapman Lane that would become Little Hills Christmas Tree Farm, there were 13 chicken barns, some up to 100 feet long, that needed to be removed. Kriss and Carol decided early on that they wanted to reuse as much of the lumber, the metal roofing and as many of the windows as they could to build what is now the sales barn. They hired an architect who shared their vision and the result is a structure made of recycled materials that is as beautiful as it is functional.
At Little Hills Christmas Tree Farms we have made a commitment to earth-friendly farming. We work hard to maintain an environment that is not only safe for humans, but that also supports and promotes the health and well being of our wild and domestic animal residents. That means that we use no pesticides, we mow whenever possible and we recycle trees by chipping them and using the chips as mulch around the farm.
Part of our ability to maintain sound environmental practices stems from the fact that we personally attend to each and every tree throughout its life cycle. We hand prune and hand shape each tree to ensure that it grows into a tree that's exactly what you imagine a perfect tree should be. By giving each tree detailed attention we are able to identify and address any problems very quickly, and in the least invasive way possible. We take pride in providing a greenbelt at Little Hills Christmas Tree Farms, and we are dedicated to preserving this special place for generations to come.
Little Hills Christmas Tree Farms are proud to support Sonoma County businesses and non-profit organizations.
