Look out for our distinctive red signs en route and please, DRIVE LIKE A SLOTH along the narrow country lanes which surround our Farm. 

In consideration for our neighbours who, young and old, may be out walking, cycling or simply unloading the car roadside.

20 is plenty on country lanes.

We are not operating a ticket / booking system this year at Wylds. Hip, hip holly hooray! Simply visit the Farm. 

Weekdays are less busy than weekends. If a calmer Christmas Experience is what you are looking for, we recommend coming to Wylds Mon-Thurs. Or Friday when hot street food is available ( as on weekends )

 

Access from the car park is through the garden entrance. 

A team member will be on hand to guide visitors into the farmyard and give directions to the tree plantations, shop, refreshments etc.

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.  

Cash payments are encouraged to keep queue times to a minimum.

Bring along your own saw if you wish to make like a Griswald. 

We no longer encourage tree tagging at Wylds Farm. 

However you receive this policy change, we assure you, it’s a long considered move for the good of all visitors to Wylds.
 
Whilst lots of your tags over the years have been super creative, imaginative and fun – and we’ve enjoyed seeing them all – we need to call time on tagging.
 
‘Good news, bad news, who can say’ as the Chinese proverb goes.

Tree payments are taken not in the shop but in the yard.

Speciality Teas and hot street food available from the farmyard Fri / Sat / Sun 

 

Parents are respectfully reminded that, at all times when at Wydls Farm, it is your responsibility to take care of your children’s wellbeing.

We are a working farm and both the yard and tree plantations have trip hazards and potentially dangerous areas. 

Please do be mindful of felled tree stumps in the plantation, steps into the barns, moving tractors & trailers etc. 

A spruce tree branch in the eye would not be the greatest way to start anyone’s December, without wishing to state the blindlingly obvious. Ach, unintentional pun.

Dogs on leads are very welcome at Wylds. With / without their woofy winter woolies.

We ask that dogs are kept on leads at all times.

A polite reminder also to deposit ‘wrapped hound gifts’ in one of the designated dog bins near the farmyard.

An aside, check out the dog collars in our shop!

 

We do have some choirs visiting the Farm on weekends this Season.
