CROSS PLAINS, Texas (KTAB) - It's officially Christmas time and a farm just up the road in Cross Plains is ready for the holiday season.

Childress Farms has been in the family for decades.

"Whenever Dad bought the place he planted pecan trees 35 feet apart but the problem with that is it's pretty naked because those pine trees were just youths so he put a peach tree between them and he said that still wasn't enough so he put a Christmas tree between them," Owner Bob Childress said.

After a long career in South Dakota working for the Forrest Service, Childress came back to Texas to take over the family farm.

"It was always a fun place to be so when we retired we said 'yeah we'll go to the farm besides that my wife likes the warmer weather better than she does South Dakota,'" Childress said.

Childress has been working on the farm for more than 20 years now.

"It's great because you do whatever you want to," Childress said.

You can still find him out in the fields tending to his crops.

"We've got pick your own asparagus in the spring and then we have pick your own blackberries, we have pick your own peaches and then it's pretty quiet until we have pick your own Christmas trees," Childress said.
