Beech Ridge Farm, as it is known today, was founded in 1969 by Jim and Nancy Pearson. The farm was in a serious state of disrepair and required significant work before the Pearson's were able to move into the farmhouse. During the renovations, Jim was gainfully employed by Gorham High School teaching Industrial arts, Graphics arts and drafting while Nancy opened the original store selling Carter brand animal foods.
The store underwent several changes throughout the years and finally closed its doors to the grain business in 1997, but since 1986 the Pearson's have planted young Christmas trees and raised them to maturity. Today the family still owns and runs the farm as a Christmas tree farm and enjoys the year long, arduous process of helping God grow you a perfect tree.
Fortunately, the kids have expressed interest in continuing the business and maintaining the Farm. As a result, we are diligently rehabilitating fields and planting new trees for the future. We're here for the long haul so you, your friends, and your family can enjoy the choose-and-cut tradition for years to come.
