Seiler’s grows a Texas tradition
The Thanksgiving holiday weekend marks the beginning of the family tradition of selecting that “perfect” family Christmas tree. Many families traveled to Seiler Christmas Tree and Pecan Farm, located on Jakes Colony Road, to choose and cut their fresh, “Texas-grown” Christmas tree.
Three different types of trees are available for purchase --Virginia pine, Loblolly pine, and Leyland cypress. Sizes range from 3 feet to 10 feet in height.
The family advertises very little, mainly in local papers, to inform the public of their hours of operation. Most of their business comes from repeat customers, who tell others of the farm. Customers select and cut their own trees, and the Seilers will help if assistance is needed.
The Seiler family sells pecans and wreaths. As an added feature, hayrides are held.
The farm is located north of Stockdale on S.H. 123, at the Wilson and Guadalupe county line. Customers traveling north from Stockdale need to turn left on Elm Creek Road at Smithey’s Country Store and just follow the signs on Jakes Colony Road.
For more information, call 830-401-4590 or 830-379-3468. The farm will be open from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. on weekends, 4-6 p.m. on weekdays.
