2023 News

Our loving father, Jack Rudy, 93 years young, passed away of natural causes in December of 2021. He was an icon of community service in the Dauphin/Middle Paxton area and beloved by so many for his kind heart and giving nature. Buying the farm at age 50, to plant Christmas trees, American Chestnut Trees, a fruit orchard, strawberries, raspberries, raise bees, and grow Silver Queen corn, was his life's dream! We will never be the same without his endearing tenor voice singing 'O Holy Night' on Christmas Eve, his legendary Christmas sand tart baking marathon or his presence at the many family Christmas traditions he created. His daughter, Donna, and his son, Randy, will keep running the tree farm. His memorial can be found at:
