For many of us, Christmas trees come to mind for only a short part of the winter holiday season. For Bill and Judy Summers of Middleton, Wisconsin, it means spending a lot of time with Christmas trees – the whole year in fact. From early spring all the way through December 24th, the Summers make sure they have the highest quality and widest variety of Christmas trees available for their customers at Summers Christmas Tree Farm.

For Bill and Judy, growing Christmas trees is about more than just selling trees; it’s about the peace and quiet they find living here. And it’s about the memories families make when visiting their Christmas Tree Farm in search of the perfect tree. As Judy says, “there’s a lot of work and there’s a lot of fun” and it pays to be in the Christmas tree business!
