DEERFIELD, N.Y. (WKTV) - The warmer-than-usual temperatures created for a busy day at Atanasoff's Tree Farm on Walker Road as business was busier than usual.

Farm employees were out all day assisting customers look for the perfect Christmas Tree.

This is the farm's 31st season and the employees love doing it every year.

Owner Erin Hamalainen says, "It's a lot of work, but the joy we see in the children's faces coming down, usually sledding in the snow, is worth it. And them just saying 'We got our tree and santa's going to be filling it was a lot of nice presents for us.' That's the best part of all."

Atanasoff's Tree Farm is open from now until Christmas, sun-up to sun-down. Cusomers can purchase a pre-cut tree or look for the perfect everygreen themselves. All sizes and types cost $20. The farm located on Walker Road in Deerfield.
