Welcome to our 2020
Christmas Tree Season !
CHOOSE-YOUR-OWN CHRISTMAS TREE
Tasmania's first Choose-Your-Own Christmas Tree Farm here in the heart of the Tamar Valley.
Situated 30 minutes north of Launceston nestled in the rural heartlands of the Tamar Valley our Christmas Trees
are beautifully pruned to a traditional shape.
Come out to the farm and select the Christmas Tree just right for you. Freshly cut, and well watered, your tree will easily provide a beautiful scented addition to your Festive Season (4 - 6 weeks).
We happily allow tagging of Christmas Trees if you aren't ready to take your fresh Christmas Tree home from our first open day in November. Your Christmas Tree will then be reserved for later picking on any of the following weekends.
