Our aim at Wylds Farm has always been to create a Family Festive Experience which both adults and children enjoy and one that you’ll all remember for years to come.  The Farm is a magical place and we endeavour, each year, to keep the true family feel and spirit of Christmas alive.

Our Postbox Trail is open for letters to Father Christmas. Follow the signs to wander through the woodland and up the small hill to find the red postbox.  For a reply, see FC’s full postal address below.

Our 12 Wylds Elves will have hopped off the shelves and be a’ hiding for you to find.  

This year, we’re holding a Season Preview evening on Friday Nov 26. A little opportunity to browse the Wylds Shop, enjoy some live music in the barns and a drink at The Après Tree Bar. Click here to receive an email reminder.

Dogs on leads are welcome as always, with or without their woofy woolies.

Letters to Father Christmas

Do remember to bring along your letters to Father Christmas to post in the Wylds Postbox at the top of the short hill walk ( signposted ) and be sure to address these correctly for a reply as below ;

Say hello to our pig

Walk down the farm track and meet our Kune Kune pig, Sherbet, to exchange snorty festive greetings.

She can’t see so clearly, so do call for her with your gruntiest, oinky voices!

The Kune Kune is a small, domestic pig from New Zealand. Very friendly and docile.

They have ‘wattles’ that hang from their lower jaw.

No kissing allowed and that’s nothing to do with the pandemic. She has big teeth.

Walk to pick your tree

It’s a short walk to the plantation along our farm track.

All the trees are clearly signposted by type & size for you to pick the perfect .

Ask a Wylds elf cutter for advice if you’re unsure which tree to select. 

Check out our social media for video descriptions of tree types by Jo & Steve.

Tractor & Trailer Rides

Take a bouncy, bumpy, pot-holy trip down to the plantations to pick your own tree.

Rides depart frequently from the Barns on weekend days and more intermittently on weekdays. 

This is a donation activity.

To participate, text WYLDS followed by your donation amount to 70085. Texts will cost the donation amount plus one standard network rate message. ...or drop your donation into the box on the back of the trailer.

Tractor Steve will keep you straight; he’s the guy with the beard, silver birch-colour hair and with plenty of Christmas’s under his belt. I may get wrapped knuckles for writing that. Shhh!

Rumour has it that Jo, Steve’s wife, will be at the wheel of tractor no.2 which means regulars may miss her in the netting shed.

One of our Wylds Elves will help cut down your tree and, if you need, pop it into the tractor to drive back up to the yard.

Meet KENAI

Named after this little guy, who has grown several winter welly sizes since this shot was taken. KENAI, the boy, comes back each winter to check how his big brown friend is faring in the yard.

He stands tall and proud overlooking you all eating and having a jolly time around him. 

The River Kenai in Alaska is renowned for its salmon fishing.

Our Kenai is renowned for his celebrity ursine stature and patience amidst all the two-paw, selfie-posing, merry masses.

Our Shop

12 Days of Christmas' Treasure Trail

Test your quiz skills with our ’12 Days of Christmas’ Treasure Trail ( with prize !) to take you on a gentle walk through the plantation. Together with the Team from locally based youth charity The Kings Arms we’ve pulled together an activity for all ages and abilities and which encourages some much-needed cheer and daftness at this difficult time.

The Kings Arms have worked hard this year to pivot to online services and provide different activities in these unprecedented times, so that the young people they support within the community, aged 11-18, continue to receive services that enable them to thrive. 

The Kings Arms have 2 youth centres in East Hampshire where young people can hang out and have fun, as well as professionally trained youth workers who provide support on a range of topics helping the young people to negotiate the challenges in their lives.  

They also run the East Hants Young Carers programme, Special needs groups, provide mentoring on a 1:1 or group basis and After-School and evening programmes.  

COVID has provided some challenges and some of their programmes have moved online to maintain safety, however what hasn’t changed is their passion and dedication in supporting young people to be the best they can be; developing good self-esteem, building emotional resilience and having positive friendships.
