Northern Fresh Balsam Inc.
Bill Hamilton’s life has always been closely tied to the forest. A forester, he and his family run Northern Fresh Balsam Inc., a Christmas tree farm. Along with selling trees at the market, they also export and have one of the region’s only delivery and installation tree services. Simply order online and they’ll do the rest!
When he’s not “keeping it real” with Christmas trees on the family farm, Bill also sustainably forages for firewood and hand-selects wood he carves into spoons, canes, charcuterie boards and more. Not only beautifully handcrafted, these functional works are made to last. Bill uses a variety of wood in his work, but each piece speaks to him in some way as he forages on the farm. His wife, Karen Fraser, also makes jewelry from the wood.
Bill is at the Market at Christmastime and during the warmer months, as well, sharing his passion for the forest.
