We have every intention of enabling a wonderful Christmas Experience again for you here at Wylds Farm this year. Unfortunately, we’ve had to make the difficult decision to remove certain popular activities for the Wylds 2020 Season.
We’ve made necessary changes to ensure we are Covid-compliant throughout the farm and are committed to ensuring Wylds is a safe and fun environment for all to enjoy in the lead up to Christmas. We ask that everyone reads and follows the guidelines below to help us ensure this is the case.
Please review this page before you visit in Nov/Dec since Government guidelines may change in the interim.
Daily 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
Nov 21st – Dec 21st
Unfortunately, our annual ( and very enjoyable ) Season Launch Night is not possible this year.
We ask that you consider making your annual visit to Wylds on a weekday this season; we’d really appreciate if you’re able to do so as this will contribute to a more even flow of visitors throughout the week. With many people working from home currently, this will be more achievable for many of us and will prevent overwhelm at weekends.
If the farm does become too busy at the weekends, we will instigate a queuing system along the drive with a one in, one out protocol to manage visitor numbers.
Meet And Greet
We’re operating a one way system for pedestrians. Access from the car park is through the gardens. A team member will be on hand to guide visitors into the farmyard and give directions to the tree plantations, shop, refreshments etc.
Pick your own Tree
After a short walk into the plantation to select a tree, signal to one of the Wylds Farm cutters ( wearing hi-vis vests ) and he/she will fell your tree, ticket it with your name and take it to the tractors to be driven back to the yard.
Once back in the yard and reunited with your tree, one of the Wylds Team will price and net it. This year, payment facilities for trees will be at the point of netting.
Cash payments are encouraged to keep queue times to a minimum.
Tree tagging is not encouraged this season. We wish to reduce the number of visits people make to the farm and reduce staff contact as much as possible.
If you are unable to come, choose and take your tree on any one given day and need to tag your tree in advance, please make your own sturdy and innovative tags; we cannot supply tags this year.
The Wylds Shop
Face masks must be worn in the shop. No tree payments will be taken in the shop this season and numbers will be restricted to prevent queues and allow a relaxed shopping experience.
The Après Tree Bar
Hot drinks, a non-alcoholic mulled punch and snacks will be served from the bar.
These can be enjoyed at suitably spaced tables in the larger covered area of the open barn.
Alcoholic drinks will not be served this year since there is no table service at Wylds.
At this point in time, we do not intend to serve hot food this year.
Masks must be worn in all enclosed or covered areas unless seated for eating and drinking. Face masks must also be worn in all the barns, bar and shop.
We ask that only groups of up to 6 from the same household visit.
Wylds Team members will be on site to remind visitors to maintain social distancing and not form larger groups.
Do bring your fabulous, often decorative letters to post to Father Christmas; the Wylds Postbox on the hill is open for business.
Sadly, tractor trailer rides cannot take place. Instead, it’s a short walk along the track into the plantations to chose a tree.
The Wylds Christmaze and Go Karts are not possible attractions this season.
For disabled drivers and those with special requirements parking is available close to the yard.
All other parking is in the field at weekends.
