For the last few years we’ve had an artificial Christmas tree. We bought it a few years ago after the Christmas tree we had bought dropped most of its needles before Christmas Day! My husband was so fed up with our real tree that he went out and bought an artificial one. It’s a great tree, easy to store and put together, but we just miss the smell of a real tree. So this year we promised to think about getting a real tree. We found the Christmas Tree Farm in Chesham and decided to pay a visit.
A visit to the Christmas Tree Farm Chesham
Chesham is a pretty little town just north of us and the Christmas Tree Farm is just outside. They have a large car park and we were able to take our pup with us. There’s a hand sanitising station as you enter and you’re encouraged to wear masks.
You can walk around and see all the different trees which have been freshly cut. We even saw a truck delivering them, freshly cut from the fields.
The Christmas Tree Farm is one of the largest growers and retailers of Christmas Trees in the south-east of England and they have a huge choice of different trees to choose from – both traditional and non-drop.
The trees were arranged by type and size and all priced individually so you could choose exactly what you wanted. There were plenty to choose from. The Christmas Tree Farm is open weekdays and weekends with some late night opening closer to Christmas and trees are freshly cut so you can be sure they will last.
When you’ve chosen your perfect Christmas tree it is taken to be netted whilst you pay, it’s then taken to your car!
Although we didn’t pick our tree today the Christmas Tree Farm is the closest place to buy freshly cut Christmas trees from where we live in London. It’s great for the children to see them growing and to know that they are all freshly cut.
As well as selling Christmas trees, the Christmas Tree Farm also sells beautiful wreaths which we watched being made. Hopefully we can go back in a week or two and pick our tree!
The Christmas Tree Farm can be found at HP5 1NE. It’s free to visit and you don’t need to pre-book. Dogs welcome on leads.
