Digby farm is a family run business of 60 hectares, of which 20 hectares are dedicated to growing Christmas trees. The plantation is run by John and Helen Ellis with their son and eldest daughter working on the farm throughout the year, Other members of the family join in with the work at various times of the year and it’s all hands on deck when the doors open to the public.
Being a dry part of the country with an annual rain fall of approximately 55cm the conditions are best suited to growing Norway spruce (the traditional Christmas tree) and Scots pine, we do however grow other varieties particularly for our retail sales.
Our retail sales are usually open from the first weekend of December up until Christmas Eve. Please be aware that opening hours and days differ each year, and particularly in the week leading up to Christmas – check the homepage for the latest times.
We do our best to ensure that our trees are fresh by lifting new trees each day.
Another area that has exploded within the business over the last few years has been supplying trees and foliage to Horse Shows and to Show jumping events all across the country with our trees being used at alot of the major events throughout the year.
