Ever wonder where your Christmas tree is going to come from? You have an open invitation to visit Glaisters Christmas Tree Farm during December. There you’ll be able to see how Christmas trees are selected, cut and made ready for delivery. While you’re there you can select a Christmas tree of your own, a stand to hold your tree, and any decorations you need for a stunning display.
There is a lot of work involved with growing a Christmas tree. The process generally takes around ten years from seed planting to harvesting and along the way those trees need plenty of care and attention. The shaping of the tree starts from its third year in the ground – each tree is gently sheared each year to help develop that traditional Christmas tree shape. You’ll see the results of these efforts when you visit our farm.
The farm and farm shop are open for visitors between 10am and 4:30pm on:
3rd and 4th December
10th and 11th December
17th and 18th December
If you wish to visit on a weekday, please call ahead and book a suitable time – this is our busiest time of the year, however, we’ll always try to accommodate visitors outside of those weekend hours.
For those looking for something special in the way of Christmas wreaths, come and talk to us about specific colours or themes. Our in-house florist has a lot of experience creating wonderful wreaths, they may be able to help you create your wreath. If you need help finding us, feel free to give us call for directions.
