Hurds Family Farm Hosts Trees for Troops Event

On Dec. 3, Hurds Family Farm, located in Modena, NY, hosted a special Trees for Troops event where local troops from the 105th Airlift Wing at Stewart Air National Guard Base in Newburgh and West Point took part.

Sponsored by the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation and Fedex Corp., Hurds Family Farm donated approximately 200 real Christmas trees to the troops and military families as a thank you to all service members and veterans. Additionally, Chapel Field Christian School, located in Pine Bush, provided all troops with a personalized letter from students.

At the event, festivities included an old-fashioned hay ride, the cutting of the beautiful trees and a bonfire while visitors sipped on hot chocolate. To learn more about Hurds Family Farm and upcoming events, visit:
