The Boys’ Home Christmas Tree Farm is operated by Boys’ Home, located in Covington Virginia. Boys’ Home provides residential education for young men ages 6-17. Joanne Tannehill, as a bequest, left her Augusta County Christmas Tree Farm as a teaching and learning experience for the residents at Boys’ Home.
With the help of Virginia Tech, The Virginia Christmas Tree Growers Association, the Jessie Ball duPont Fund, the Richard & Caroline T. Gwathmey Trust, Harold Reid of the Statler Brothers, and our friends and neighbors, we began this new adventure in 1994 – this is our 20th Christmas!
Our residents actively participate in all aspects of the tree farm. In the spring, they set out transplants and plant seedlings. In the summer and fall, they shear trees and groom fields. During the winter, they cut and deliver trees for wholesale and assist with the Choose & Cut sales at the Farm.
With your support, we will have another successful season and be able to carry on the wishes of Joanne Tannehill. We look forward to being of service to you this Christmas season.
Our mission is to help each resident strive toward becoming a responsible and productive member of society by developing his potential - spiritually, mentally, physically, and socially.
The main campus of Boys’ Home is located two and one-half miles west of Covington, Va. on Route 60. The campus consists of 70 developed acres, along with 1,400 mountainous acres of woods, streams and cliffs, where the boys can hunt, fish or swim.
Our Campus offers the perfect setting for allowing young men to mature in a Christian environment. Our program is based upon personal responsibility and discipline, which is reflected in our mission statement. The Boys' Home Christmas Tree Farm is essential to the fulfillment of our mission and a vital part of the lives of our residents.
