Season Update: The effects of the Christmas Tree shortage 0
Christmas is in full swing at Brungot Farms
First, thank you! We are so thankful for such a wonderful Christmas season so far. We have loved seeing you and your families picking out the perfect tree or wreath in both of our lots this year. We have had a record-breaking year, and we thank you for shopping for your fresh trees and wreaths at Brungot Farms.
You may have heard on the news or from us earlier this year - there is a nationwide Christmas tree shortage. We are also affected by this shortage in Central Texas, but it does not mean we are out of trees! It just means that we are running very low on the BIG Christmas trees (above 7 foot).
Due to the extenuating weather conditions in North Carolina, we only have trees 7 foot and above if you have ALREADY pre-ordered your tree. We will not be receiving any more tall trees because of these weather conditions. Although, we have lots of 5-7 foot trees in both of our locations in Leander in Cedar Park.
Sunday is the last day for our Leander Location 12 Days of Hope and Giving Fundraiser. This fundraiser benefits 12 local nonprofits in the area. Make sure you make it out to the Leander Chamber of Commerce before December 2nd to purchase your Christmas tree or wreath.
If you still have not picked out a tree for your home, we encourage you to run not walk to one of our two Brungot Farms locations in Cedar Park or Leander. Our prices will stay the same, as always!
We are open on weekdays from 4 pm - 8 pm and we will be open THIS weekend December 1st and 2nd from 10 a.m. - 8 p.m. Don’t miss out on finding a wreath or tree for your home!
As always, we are so thankful to celebrate Christmas with your family!
Brungot Farms Owner invited to Panel of Speakers with Texas Christmas Tree Growers Association. 0
I wanted to stop and spend some time sharing many things that are happening for the 2015 Christmas season. There was many hours of time spent on reflection of the 2014 Christmas Tree Season, and this year, I promised that I would do things different, and better…
One of the things that I knew I needed to do when I began this journey of Brungot Farms, was to include technology in the business plan. Using the power of the internet, POS systems, and Mobility were vital to survival of a business was my view. I am honor to say, that other have seen what I am doing, and want me to share it. What makes this such an honor, is that the people I will be sharing it with, are the members of the Texas Christmas Tree Growers Association! The Experts in my view come from around the country, sharing knowledge of growing, and selling Christmas Trees Gather each year in a Texas City.
This year’s conference will be August 21st, and 22nd in Waco, Texas. Saturday morning I will join a panel of experts to share, and discuss Technology and Christmas Tree Sales. Discussing how the power of the internet, Mobile Devices, POS systems, and Customer Order Processing are changing.
I am truly humbled, and honored, to have this opportunity. Taking what I have learned over my 16 yr career with a technology company, and bring it to a live long dream is what it’s all about!
Speaking about technology, another project we are working on is the 35th Annual Georgetown Christmas Stroll. It’s an honor once again to bring Santa’s Village to life, and Stand up a Christmas Tree Forest in the middle of Georgetown. This year we plan on bringing a little magic (aka Technology) to the forest to help Santa’s helpers hear the Dreams of children. More to come on that soon…
