Their trees are freshly cut at least weekly but often daily depending on the variety, so more often than not, the tree you choose will have been cut down that morning. There is always a large choice on display and all trees are in stands and set up, so you and your family can wander amongst them and choose the right one for you. Once you have chosen your tree they will trim the base for you, put the tree in netting and load it in your car.There is ample, easy parking, and a great vineyard shop selling Polgoon wines and juices as well as a huge variety of other local produce.
Fentongollan Farm, Truro
Started from tiny seedlings, their Norway spruce trees have been nurtured in the same way they raise their vegetable seedlings, with the sophisticated irrigation and feed systems. The results are their beautiful potted trees. They have pruned them twice a year, careful finger pruning in June and a fairly hard shear throughout the winter to ensure the trees grow to the correct shape. As the trees are potted, they offer more versatility of use and of course, can be planted and enjoyed after Christmas too.
