Alan Day of Four Year Strong Starts a Christmas Tree Farm

Alan Day of Four Year Strong talked with Alternative Press about starting a Christmas tree farm:

“It fell in our laps a couple of years ago, because a friend of a friend was selling their grandparents’ farm,” Day explains. “It was a lot of land, so we went to check it out not really expecting to go for it, but we did. We planted our first batch of trees last spring, and we’ll plant more in the new year. We’re not selling our own trees yet—we won’t be for another four or five years, because they take that long to grow—so we’re still selling retail. But we’re building a life around this thing, for some reason, and at its peak, we’re hoping the farm will have up to 10,000 trees.”
