Beckwith Family Christmas Tree Station has become a family affair for the Beckwith family By Alexander Plate The Beckwith Family Christmas Tree Station has been a part of many Central New Yorkers holiday traditions since it opened in 1995, and owners Jack and Faye Beckwith say they feel blessed to be able to be a part of the season for so many. Faye says that the station’s customers come from all over Central New York, some coming from as far away as Skaneateles, almost an hour drive south of Hannibal. “People will drive quite a long distance to cut a farm-fresh tree,” Faye said. Part of what makes the Beckwith Family Christmas Tree Station special is that the trees at the farm are not planted according to age or size. Rather, young trees are planted wherever there is space among the older, larger stock. “I think people like having the trees mixed up like that. It makes you feel like you’re out in the woods, and you have a lot of unique options to choose from,” Jack said. The farm sells a variety of trees, ranging in price from $50 and $150 depending on the size. Some are more popular than others. Jack
