Chris “Babe” and Christina Predella
Babe and Christina both grew up in the Union 61 District. They were married at a neighboring property, Misty Meadows on Lake Road, never knowing that someday that beautiful farm up the street would be theirs.
Chris (Babe) Predella is currently the President and CEO of Babe’s Lawn care Inc., a company of 25 employees located in Brimfield, MA. Babe started his business in 1993 by mowing neighborhood lawns with a Murray Push Mower he purchased at Spags. The business now has an extensive customer base in both the commercial and residential landscape sectors.
Prior to purchasing the farm, Christina was a middle/high school teacher where she taught health/wellness and nutrition courses and was a very active student advisor for a variety of groups at Quaboag Regional High School. After being out on maternity leave with their second child, she made the decision to put her focus on her family first and their dream of polishing Oakholm and becoming an event coordinator at the farm.
With Babes background in landscaping and agriculture and Christina’s background with venue planning next door at Misty Meadows Farm as her summer hobby, they make a perfect pair to allow the property to thrive in the years to come, while maintaining the look and feel of the beautiful estate as it stood 80+ years ago.
Together they have created a secluded wedding destination where his rustic utility and her sophisticated sensibility court one another. They have saved Oakholm Farm Estate, and over a century of farming tradition.
