Christmas

We love Christmas at Kiln Farm. We grow our own Christmas trees and make fresh wreaths.

Christmas Trees

We have been growing and selling trees for the last 18 years.  It is great to meet everyone and be part of choosing their tree and the Christmas anticipation.  When we started, the trees were tiny then but each year we added more in the field and we always plant a new tree when we sell a fully grown one.  When you visit the field you will probably be able to spot one or two really big trees from our first few years. Here is a photo of our field from last time it snowed.

We grow and sell Nordmann Fir (non-drop), Blue Spruce (non-drop silver needles) and Norway Spruce (traditional).  We are members of the British Christmas Tree Growers Asssociation.

Christmas Trees and Wreaths

You can book to come and choose your Christmas tree from the field

We will have lots of cut trees available from Saturday 26th November.

We will be making fresh wreaths every week from then on.

We net and help you load your Christmas tree.

Choose your Christmas Tree from the field.

Book slots for October and November

At the end of October and during November you can come and look around our Christmas Tree field. You will need to book a slot from our events page.

Don your wellies and coats as it can be wet and muddy but then come and have fun in the field for as long as you wish. Making the decision to choose the ‘perfect’ tree can take time. There is a game for the children to play in the field hunting pictures to keep them warm and busy. We will tag your tree and take your name and date that you would like to collect. Paul and the team will cut it freshly for you on the day so it lasts beautifully with minimal needle drop. We look forward to the excitement and anticipation of Christmas with you.

Cut trees

We have lots more cut trees available to buy in the nursery. We are open every day until Christmas so please feel free to come in and look around. We hope you can find a tree you love. We are sorry but our field is shut to the public after Saturday 20th November for Health and Safety reasons.

  • Non-drop trees – Nordmann Fir, Fraser Fir and Blue Spruce.
  • Traditional trees – Norway Spruce.

If you are not sure which suits you then you can watch the video above titled “How to pick your perfect Christmas Tree”

We are happy to help you select your tree, give you advice on how to care for it, trim any branches, net your tree and load it. We also stock a variety of Christmas tree stands to suit different sizes of tree. 

Container grown Christmas Trees

This is if you believe that a Christmas tree is for life – not just for Christmas!

If you would like to take home a tree that you can plant out in the garden after Christmas then we have container grown Christmas Trees.  You will need to take special care of these trees while they are indoors and during the following year so we can advise you on how to do this.

Christmas Wreaths

We will be in the polytunnel making wreaths in December.  We like to make fresh wreaths using the fir from the trees and holly and fir cones from the farm.  We make wreaths to suit all tastes; natural, traditional designs, door wreaths with sparkle and wreaths in oasis to go on graves.  Nearer Christmas we also make table decorations and evergreen bunches for the door.

All hands on deck

We are a family business and it is ‘all hands on deck’ during the Christmas season.  We do our best to answer calls and emails but, particularly over the weekends in December, we are usually serving customers so we might not be able to get back to you immediately.  Thank  you for your patience.

Our Christmas Shop

We love decorating our shop.  We fill it as full as we can with Christmas decorations and especially love the natural and animal decorations. We like to have lots of Angels and nativity scenes.

Christmas Order Boxes

You can take the hassle out of Christmas food shopping by pre-ordering your vegetables, sprout stalks, potatoes, eggs and Christmas food treats that we stock in the shop such as chutneys, pickles, Suffolk jams and biscuits. They will be boxed up ready for you to collect from us at your convenience.

From 1st December we will have an order form which you can collect from the nursery or download from here. You will need to fill it in and either email to nursery@kilnfarm.com or bring it back to the farm shop by Saturday 17th December. Thank you.
