worked and fell short in the past year. It’s the kind of high-level marketing and business stuff that I go all-in for. I think it’s vital to take some time to breathe, pull our collective head out of the sand, and see where we’re going as a company. It’s important to me that we do everything we can to really shine in the field. I’ve been running this business for over 10 years, but I’m still always surprised to see how much we’ve grown every time I spend a moment reflecting on our progress. I’m thrilled to be able to say that we’re growing faster than ever, yet still maintaining the high level of service that we’ve offered for as long as we’ve been around. –Chris Earley Overall, it’s a fun tradition, and the kids love it.

It’s a little cheesy and commercialized — and I’m pretty sure we overpay for the trees this way — but the kids love it. And this doesn’t even include the sense of satisfaction and ownership you get every time you glance at the tree in the living room, knowing the effort you went through to get it into the house. Overall, it’s a fun tradition, and the kids love it. The whole orchard gets completely decked out with every possible holiday decoration you can imagine. Besides getting in the holiday spirit, I always spend December doing one of my favorite things: formulating a business game plan for the coming year.
