The Best Christmas Tree Farms in Cheshire 2020

By Jenny Schippers – 27th October 2020

Christmas Tree Farms Begin to Open

As the Christmas tree farms and stockists around Cheshire start to open and begin selling their perfect trees ready for the festive season, it is important to know where to go so you can support local this year. Many farms will be opening this weekend (21st/22nd November) so you can pick your tree with some even offering the chance to reserve for collection at a later date. The Government rules on the opening of Christmas tree farms is vague, if they are also a garden centre or farm shop then they can continue to operate as planned. Some may however be closed until 3rd December so make sure to check before you visit.

Keeping it Local

I have tried to include a wide range of locations so you can remain local in line with the lockdown restrictions. If you know of any other sellers/farms locally then please let me know so I can add them to the Guide that I have put together on Instagram at @girlabout.cheshire
