The snow is falling and so are the Christmas trees!

It was a busy day at Red Barn Gardens in Williston.

Owner Joe Weather says about 15 families checked out his trees Sunday.

"Traditionally, we'll see the people who just want to get decorating, we see a number of repeat customers who come as a tradition. They don't necessarily come on Thanksgiving but they do come early because if they come one year they want to be sure they get the best selection and obviously you'll get that if you come earlier instead of waiting to the last minute,” he said.

Weaver says the Christmas season makes up about 15% of the farm’s entire revenue.

This weekend brought in about $1,500.

He partners with a farm in New Hampshire for these trees.

And in case you’re hungry, his wife also bakes pies for the holiday season.
