Learn About Christmas Tree Farming at Dover, NH Chamber Event
People are invited to get a behind-the-scenes look at the life cycles of Christmas trees during an event scheduled at Tuckaway Tree Farm.
The event is scheduled for Wednesday, July 28 from 3 to 4:30 p.m. and it is part of the Greater Dover Chamber of Commerce's Local Expert Series.
This summer's series is a twist on the standby educational program the chamber runs, and so far, participants have learned about how beer and coffee are made.
During the event at the Christmas tree farm located at 301 Shapleigh Road in Lebanon, Maine, people will hear about how tree farmers are supplementing their incomes when droughts hinder production.
Participants are encouraged to bring boots because they will be walking a portion of the land at the 35-acre farm.
Tuckaway Tree Farm is a registered tree farm owned by Lynne Park and Susan Adams.
According to their website, as the business grew, so did the aspirations of Park and Adams. Today, they offer a setting for weddings, business and wellness retreats, family reunions and artist workshops.
Park and Adams also have three donkeys named Dakota, Ellie Mae and Asstro who are regularly featured on the farm's social media posts.
The July 28 program at Tuckaway Tree Farm is free for Dover chamber members.
In September, The Sassy Biscuit Co. will be the featured local business and participants can learn how to make biscuits like the ones sold at the company's restaurant on Washington Street in Dover.
Upright Acupuncture & Wellness on Chestnut Street in Dover will be featured during the October Local Experts Series. Facts and fiction about acupuncture will be discussed.
