I am so excited about the adventures and opportunities of a brand new year. This will be our 10th season of doing business as Sampson’s Hollow. Prior to that, the property was (and continues to be) a section of a vast farm which has been …in the family since the mid 1800’s. The huge maple tree which is on the centermost part of our farm is kind of like the heartbeat. Sampson, my husband’s grandfather (they called him Dada), planted that tree when he was a young man and the field was just a cow pasture. If my math is correct, the tree would be about 100-years old because my youngest son, Caleb Samson, was only six-weeks old when Dada passed away. He will soon be thirty-one. The tree is deeply rooted, much like our family, our values and our beliefs. We are very grateful to the brides and grooms who have married on our farm and to those who have booked for 2015 and 2016. Our expansion is well under way and it’s so exciting to be growing! Happy New Year everyone!
