On the farm, there’s not much to do in the fields apart from keeping the pigeons off the oilseed rape crop, which means the gas guns need checking to make sure there’ll still working and haven’t been vandalised or stolen, the scarecrows and various whirling, blowing and flapping devices need moving around the field and standing up after they’ve been blown over in the wind. The rest of our time is spent working with the Christmas trees.
This weekend will be our busiest of the season. The Christmas Tree Barn has been filled with Christmas trees and the netting machines are lined up ready for action.
The Barley Barn is filled with reindeer headbands, decorations and Slamseys Gin.
There are vintage items to investigate
and photo props. Should you need some.
And if you haven’t bought your Christmas tree yet, here’s quick guide to making sure you buy a wonderful Christmas tree this year.
