Families from Somerset are next month (June, 2017) being invited to visit our Christmas tree farm as part of Open Farm Sunday.
We’re delighted to be taking part and supporting Open Farm Sunday for the first time. The event is the farming industry’s national open day and take place on Sunday, June 11.
We’ll be open from 11am until 4pm and are inviting people to come along and take the opportunity to walk the Christmas tree plantations. They will be able to see the trees mid growth when they are a pale green colour. Visitors can stroll through our woods and bring a picnic to enjoy by our lakes.
We’ll also be offering light refreshments in aid of Children’s Hospice South West and we will be on hand to answer any questions people might have during the day.
Open Farm Sunday, managed by LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming), is one of the farming industry’s biggest success stories. Since the first Open Farm Sunday in 2006, more than 1,500 farmers across the UK have opened their gates and welcomed 1.8 million people onto their farm for one Sunday each year.
We’re based on 40 acres and a woodland runs the length of the plantations, either side of a stream. This area is home to a multitude of plants and wildlife, in particular rare lesser spotted orchids, deer and occasionally otters.
People who visit us on Open Farm Sunday will be able to find out all about how we farm Christmas trees and also how we help and attract wildlife to the farm.
Langford Lakes Christmas Tree Farm will be open for LEAF Open Farm Sunday on June 11 from 11am until 4pm.
