The co-owner of Firever Pines, Ben Snyder began farming Christmas trees at the age of 10 on his grandfather’s Christmas tree farm (Haring Tree Farms) in Lewisberry, Pennsylvania. His grandfather has been growing Christmas trees since 1979. Ben was heavily involved with his grandfather’s business learning the craft over the past 20 years managing the primary location and tending to the trees throughout the season. In 2004, Ben started a small farm of his own in Pennsylvania on his parent’s land where he still has trees growing.
The Snyder’s purchased a 10 acre farm in Caroline County, Virginia in 2017. Each year since then they have planted tree seedlings at their Virginia farm and Pennsylvania farm. Their store front was established in the summer of 2019 and is open every holiday season.
