Watts to partner with local farm


By Kelsey Musick

Watts Christmas Tree Farm and Traders Point Creamery have partnered to offer a new holiday experience in Zionsville.

For many years, the well-known tree farm sold its trees during the holiday season at 165 West Sycamore St. in downtown Zionsville, behind the Bentley dealership. Traders Point Creamery CEO Mark Vander Kooy said Watts Christmas Tree Farm had to seek a new location because of zoning issues.

“They inquired if we would be willing to partner with them and serve as the site for the Watts Christmas tree sale,” Vander Kooy said. “Those of us at Traders Point Creamery met internally, and we all thought it was a great idea. We are thrilled to partner with such a great name.”

Vander Kooy said Traders Point Creamery is an ideal location because it offers more space and a more festive atmosphere.

“We have hot chocolate, eggnog, milk and cookies (at the) fireplace,” Vander Kooy said. “We are looking forward to creating a great holiday experience in a farm setting for people to go out and pick out their Christmas tree. We don’t grow Christmas trees ourselves, but Watts is bringing them all in this year.”

Like many in the Zionsville area, Vander Kooy is more than familiar with the Watts name. He said their Christmas trees are the most popular in Zionsville.

“I’ve been here 21 years, and we’ve always bought our Christmas trees from Watts,” Vander Kooy said. “It’s a real namesake in the Zionsville community, so we are thrilled they reached out and we are honored to partner with them. This partnership is something we are expecting to continue in the years to come.”

The sale dates have not yet been announced. For more, visit traderspointcreamery.com.
