Gorgeous 16+ Christmas tree decors that will amaze you

Ben Butler grew up living and working on his family farm, Butler’s Orchard. He graduated from the University of Maryland in 2010 with a degree in Horticulture and Horticulture. Now Ben works full time on his family farm as Farm and Finance Manager where he is responsible for all crop growing operations. Ben truly believes that farming and being a part of Butler’s Orchard is his purpose in life and is committed to the business to the highest degree!

Butler’s Orchard is a 300 hectare family farm with a variety of farming activities offered throughout the year. We grow small fruits, tree fruits, Christmas trees and vegetables and offer school tours, birthday parties, private events, a large autumn festival and much more. We also have a farm market where we sell local produce and other local products such as honey, jam and pies just to name a few.

The farm began in 1950 when my grandparents bought the original land with peaches being grown. From there, they pioneered the pick-your-own concept and began growing strawberries along with other crops for neighbors and friends to come pick. The second generation and current owners have taken the farm to another level, offering more activities and family fun than ever before. The third generation includes my brother, sister and myself and we hold the current positions of General Manager, Purchasing Manager and Farm & Finance Manager respectively. There are currently seven “Butlers” working in the company on a daily basis. We are proud to say that we are a family business that works well together and plan to keep it that way as a transition plan is in place to move the third generation into ownership. We work hard throughout the growing season and really enjoy our slower winter months which give us time to travel, relax and plan for the upcoming season.
