It’s become our most favourite Christmas tradition of all. Is there anything more magical than stomping through the tree farm? Watching George using the tape measure as he seeks out and inspects every tree, seeing him grow each year as he makes his way through the farm is a bitter-sweet memory. Diving into a cup of hot chocolate and marshmallows as the smell of Christmas fills the air – a tradition that gives me so much joy and festive spirit.
We’ve been visiting Keele Christmas Tree Farm for more than 10 years and love kicking off the festivities in this way. The family-run Christmas tree farm at Keele has been growing and selling trees for more than 20 years and I’m proud to support a local family-run business. We once purchased a tree farm a Supermarket and were left with a drooping tree within a week – I am a huge advocate for buying direct from the grower, you will save a small fortune and you can guarantee your tree will be fresh from the field!
One day George hopes to be able to work on the farm, what a perfect job for a growing boy who just loves Christmas. I can see him helping families to choose their tree.
So, if you want to start a new Christmas tradition this year, there is no doubt that visiting a Christmas Tree Farm is a great one. We always head out on opening weekend. We love how quiet it is, and don’t feel guilty spending so long wandering around the field. Christmas is all about making memories. Spending time together is the most precious part of Christmas for me, especially this year after losing our dear Leonard.
