Wisdom from a Tree Farm Owner

Tanya Farmakis and her husband own Farmakis Farms in San Juan Capistrano, where customers can select a live tree to have cut down.

The farm …

It’s been a Christmas tree farm for more than 50 years; we’ve had it for more than 15 years. It’s one of the few left in Orange County. We actually grow the trees in ground and have about four to five years’ worth of crops. We can only grow two kinds because of climate (in Southern California), and we also bring in other types from our grower in Oregon. My father, who is 75 years old, works the farm, and we have a 10-year-old daughter, so it’s all hands on deck. 

Favorite part …

We see families come from when they’re newlyweds to a couple years later and she’s pregnant, and now they’ve got the kids coming. Seeing the families grow and becoming a part of a family tradition, that’s the really special part

For customers …

If they come to the farm, they’re going to experience walking through a eucalyptus grove that we light up. They can walk the fields of our homegrown trees. Inside the barn, we have Christmas music playing and all kinds of merchandise. We have farm animals, too.
