PYO Christmas Tree

Create festive memories the whole family will treasure by visiting a Christmas Tree Farm this year.

There’s something special about wandering through a forest of Firs and choosing your favourite to bring home and decorate.  When you buy a locally grown tree, you also benefit from the knowledge of the growers, get advice for looking after your tree and you support a local business.  Wellie boots are a must-have item and don’t forget to wrap-up warm.  Bring the kids – and four-legged family members as many of the sites are dog-friendly – and meander through scented spruces to find the perfect tree for your home.

Here are some Christmas Tree Farms you can visit in Mid Devon:
