5th & 6th December 2020
Christmas Trees at The Macs Farm
It’s the most wonderful time of the year… and we can’t wait to be full of festive cheer!
Come and join us at the farm on 5th and 6th December, where we will have a huge selection of beautiful Nordmann Fir Christmas trees for sale (the king of Christmas trees, rich in green colour that promises to have no needles dropping!)
Now more than ever, it is so important to be conscious and try to save on waste. Therefore, all our trees must be pre-ordered. Choose from a 5ft, 6ft or 7ft tree, simply order online, choose your time slot and then you can come and pick the tree of your choice – easy!
While you’re here collecting your tree, we will have a brilliant band with some live festive music for you to listen to. Our street food diners will be serving a mouth-watering selection of festive foods and our Old Chook Shed bar will be open serving mulled wine, hot chocolates and a wide range of other alcoholic, soft and hot drinks along with a cheeky mince pie or two.
Oh, and did you know we have a direct link to Santa too? (he LOVES our eggs!) Don’t let the kids forget to bring along their letters to Father Christmas. They can send them off in our very own post box to the North Pole.
After Christmas, for a £5 charity donation you can bring your tree back to us and we will put it to good use by recycling it into mulch. All profits from this will go towards a charity very close to our hearts – local lad and friend of the farm, Noah’s rehabilitation fund.
We can’t think of a better way to start the festive season and can’t wait to see you here.
Love The Mac’s x

Tree Recycling & More About Noah
For just £5, from the 4th – 9th January, drop your Christmas tree back to us at the Egg Shack (open from 9am until 12pm) where we will take it away and turn in to mulch. Noah is a friend of the farm and on May 11th 2019, sadly Noah’s world changed dramatically when he was in an accident that resulted in life changing brain injuries. All proceeds will go towards raising funds to pay for therapies that will maximise Noahs rehabilitation.
