In 1997, inspired by a dear friend, Vivek and Amy Sarin began a family tradition of chopping Christmas trees each year with a special axe. Whoever toppled the tree got their name and the year etched into the axe handle, which made for a nice display over the fireplace. This became a beloved family tradition.
In 2008, while hauling a tree home on the top of their SUV, Vivek said to Amy, "Wouldn't it be neat if we had our own tree farm and we could do this on our own property?"
"You've got that land in Shelbyville," said Amy. "Why don't you plant some trees there?"
Without making any mention of a Christmas tree farm, Vivek published a classified ad in the Sentinel News, promoting the use of his property for various agricultural purposes.
