GREER, S.C. – The Platform at Greer, an entrepreneurial program of Greer Development Corporation, is announcing the launch of Christmas at the Farm, a program created by Greenville Christmas Trees, a graduate of The Platform at Greer Business/Entrepreneur Bootcamp Class 2.
Kevin Pahl, owner of Greenville Christmas Trees, stated “When I came to The Platform at Greer Bootcamp in March of this year, we were in the beginning stages of our business. We had an idea of what we wanted to do, but not how we could accomplish it. Through the help of The Platform coaches and mentors, we were able to take our vision and develop it into a tangible product that we hope the community will enjoy.”
Christmas at the Farm is a Christmas version of a Fall Festival. In addition to selecting the perfect Christmas tree, families will enjoy crafts, s’mores, trivia, games, and food trucks in addition to local artisan vendors.
Pahl stated, “We wanted to move away from the ordinary ‘parking lot’ Christmas trees, to an experience where families can spend an extended period of time together creating memories that will last. This way families can get the Christmas tree farm feel without having to drive hours north into the mountains.”
The Platform at Greer Bootcamp is a 2-day immersive program for local businesses and entrepreneurs. Classes are led by a team of coaches who work with participants to help their business take its next best step. This selective program is designed for committed business owners and entrepreneurs who are eager for growth and looking to accelerate.
Greer Development Corporation Executive Director, Reno Deaton, commented, “It has been exciting to watch the entrepreneurial spirit of Greenville Christmas Trees thrive within The Platform at Greer’s programs and coaching. We look forward to seeing what they will continue to accomplish as their business grows.”
Christmas at the Farm will take place at Arran Farm the weekend of Thanksgiving, November 26-28. Hours for the event are: Friday-Saturday 11a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. All tickets are $7 and can be purchased at www.greenvillechristmastrees.com.
