Seacoast New Hampshire’s Tree Farm
We installed a 66×86 Sperry Wedding Tent with stage, dance floor and Bistro Lights at the Tonry tree Farm. What a great local venue to have an outside tented wedding. Here is the Tree Farms rich history. The Tonry Tree Farm, in Hampton Falls, New Hampshire, is a family owned and operated farm offering 100 acres of cut-your-own Christmas trees. We have trees of all shapes, sizes and varieties like concolor, spruce, and balsam. We sell wreaths and a variety of small decorations and greens. While you’re here you can grab a hot dog and a hot drink at our snack stand,
“Alice’s Restaurant.” The story of our farm
Herb and Alice Landis Tonry moved with their 6 children to Hampton Falls in 1964. They started planting Christmas Trees as a 4-H project, but as the years went by and their kids left home Herb & Alice took over all the day to day operations only relying on their kids for help during the tree selling season. Herb died in 1990 and Abby Tonry took over the operation from her father and along with Alice has run the farm since then.
Today the farm family selling help consists of Abby, Louie, cousin Landis, daughter-in-law Kate and her two girls Jessie (and boyfriend Pete) and Alice Day Tonry. You all know Jessie, she is the “old” snack shop girl, now passing the reins to Alice, no pun intended since they support their horses on the money they make selling you snacks (sorry snack shop is only open on weekends).
In July 2007, Alice Landis Tonry put her land in a conservation easement, meaning it will never be developed and will stay a farm forever. This land and farm has been a part of the seacost New Hampshire community for 52 years and that will continue thanks to her forward thinking.
In July 2016, at the age of 94 Alice Landis Tonry passed away peacefully at home on the farm. Until her dying day Alice lovingly mowed and tended to her trees and took joy from seeing children and families visit her land. Her full obituary can be found here.
