At this time of year we know that most of our customers are wanting to buy Christmas Trees.
We have been growing and selling trees for the last 17 years. We love this time of year. It is great to meet everyone and be part of choosing their tree.
Ruth has made a video on YouTube all about the favourite types of tree to help you choose which one is right for you.
EVERYDAY IN DECEMBER
We sell cut trees.
Non-drop trees - Nordmann Fir, Fraser Fir and Blue Spruce.
Traditional trees - Norway Spruce.
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. We are sorry but our field is shut to the public during December for safety reasons. For information on how to make sure your tree lasts beautifully over the Christmas season then you can read Ruth's December Blog here on our website. https://kilnfarm.com/care-christmas-tree/
Container grown Christmas Tree.
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.
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.
Marie, Bev and Ruth 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.
We love decorating our shop. We have Christmas tree stands, decorations and all the usual seasonal produce. This year we have a theme of a woodland scene using silver birch branches as a backdrop.
Christmas Vegetable 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 honey. They will be boxed up ready for you to collect from us at your convenience.
The order form is available in our farm shop from 1st December or you will be able to download it via the website from that time onwards.
Please fill in the form, scan it and email it back to firstname.lastname@example.org or drop it in by Tuesday 17th December
We first started growing Christmas trees when we set up the nursery seventeen years ago. Of course 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.
Paul loves his Christmas trees and spends many hours pruning and caring for them throughout the year.
Thank you to everyone who came and tagged their tree in November. The field is now closed as the boys are cutting.
WEEKENDS IN NOVEMBER
From Saturday 9th November
10am until 4pm Saturdays and Sundays.
Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th
Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th
Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th
On these dates you are invited to come down and explore the field.
You can choose your tree, we tag it with your name and then Paul and the team will cut it for you on the day you wish to collect. That way you will have a tree as fresh as can be. Remember to dress warmly and wear sensible boots or shoes. This year we have a game for children to play in the field and a pop up Cafe for takeaway hot drinks to keep you warm in the field.
