Christmas Trees at Troutsdale Farm

***OUR CHRISTMAS TREES are NOW READY FOR SALE***

 

Our home grown trees have been planted on the farm by ourselves and grown naturally over the years.

 

We do not spray or treat them – they are grown naturally.

 

  • LOCAL
  • NATURALLY grown & managed
  • NO sprays or Travel miles
  • FRESHLY CUT... AND ...you are also helping our RARE BREED SHEEP SURVIVAL!!

 

 

 

THE CHRISTMAS SHEEP ......

Over the past few years our lovely flock of special Shropshire Sheep, a traditional native breed to the Staffordshire/Shropshire area (which have just been taken our of rare breed status) have been gently grazing in between the trees in our Christmas Tree Plantation at Troutsdale Farm.

 

This helps to keep down the grass in an environmentally friendly way.

 

The Shropshire sheep are one of the oldest breeds in the country and have a proven track record of being the most consistently reliable breed for grazing in conifer plantations, (or orchards) without damaging the trees!

 

UK & European Christmas tree growers now use Shropshires as a cost-effective and environmentally friendly method of weed control – they don't eat conifers BUT LOVE the grass AND we save the need for chemical sprays to keep the grass down as well.

 

 

 

Come and meet the flock – Evie and her family... let the children choose their own tree ....and we will cut it freshly for you.

 

Having chosen your own tree from our small planation we will then cut it fresh for you – of course having 'picked your own' you can then 'name it'!

 

We have a variety of shapes and sizes and prices.

 

Follow 'Evies Flock at Troutsdale' on Facebook ..... follow her flock through the seasons including:-

  • Lambing Live - watch the flock grow
  • Shearing the fleece - lots of lovely wool!
  • Mating Time
  • Follow the Christmas Sheep!

How to care for your tree
• After you have bought your tree it should be kept outside in a cool shaded place, preferably standing in water, until it is required indoors.
• Before bringing the tree indoors it is an advantage if about half an inch is cut off the butt in order to open up the pores of the tree – (much like fresh flowers) so that the 'tree can drink' which helps it to remain fresh.
• Mount it in a water-holding stand or wedge it in a bucket with pebbles, small stones or screwed up newspaper, but make sure it is secure.
• place it away from direct heat.
• Keep the container topped up with water every day; you will be surprised how much it needs – Christmas trees can drink up to a pint a day!
• This will help to keep the needles on the tree and remaining as fresh a possible.

ENJOY YOUR TREE!
