Christmas time is a busy time at the farm. While the harvesting is winding down, and there is likely to be more mud around, there is still plenty to see and do at Church Farm.
Spot the Reindeer
With a Farm Day Pass you can follow the farm trail, spot the Reindeer, see the horticulture garden, enjoy the woodland play area, see animals in Home Field and Vicarage Field, and use the indoor play room. (£3/adult or child, or £10 for up to 5 people, for the whole day) The Reindeer trail starts on Saturday, the 12th of November.
Take a Trailer Ride with Farmer Christmas
Book a trailer ride with Farmer Christmas on any Saturday or Sundays in December. Rides will be available at 10:00am and 3:00pm. (£4.50/adult and £5.50/child, present included)
Come to the farm to choose your own Christmas tree and replant one! Meet at the farm shop any Saturday or Sunday in December at 10am, 11am, 12pm or 2pm. Join the woodsman to cut your tree for this year and to help us plant another one for the future.
We have 30 Old English Medlar trees. Come along to pick for yourself, perhaps to make jellies or desserts or even wine. Small groups will be supervised by our grower. Entry is free and you pay for what you harvest for yourself. Gather at the farm shop at 10am or 2pm on either Saturday the 3rd December for Saturday the 10th December.
Behind the scenes meat and veg are being prepared for veg boxes, meat boxes and Christmas orders. We are raising turkeys, ducks and geese. The horticulture team has grown carrots, potatoes, parsnips, and sprouts, but that’s not all. This year’s harvest also includes beetroot, winter squash, purple sprouting broccoli, savoy cabbage, lettuce, swede and turnips. Come to the farm or visit our new online shop to place your order: churchfarm.shop.
