FARM TRAILS’ BLOG

The Kobervig family owns the choose-and-cut, 20-acre farm with White Fir, Grand Fir, Blue Spruce, and Scotch Pine. They promote fresh trees as re­newable, recyclable, and earth-friendly and are also certified as “Fish Friendly”, which means they are good stewards of streams and rivers, keeping them free of pollutants and ‘run-off’. The land was an apple and pear orchard when they started planting their trees back in 1986. The Pino Grande [large pine] narrow gauge railway ran in the region for a decade. Situated in picturesque Camino, which in Spanish means walk, path or journey, one of the joys of visiting – it always smells like Christmas.

 

The richly designed barn quilt showcases colors like loamy gold, deep pine, and sagebrush. Hand-painted by owner Dee Kobervig, it virtually floats beneath the tall pines at the entrance to the farm. The historic quilt pattern is called “Pine”, which is a complex kaleidoscope of nested, geometric trees.
