Choosing a tree from Methley is a special tradition for many local families at Christmas time. Our farm manager planted the first tree in 1996 and now the farm has 18,000 trees being grown at any one time… so there are plenty to choose from!
To ensure that we can offer our customers a full range of sizes and varieties, we also buy in some trees, meaning that as well as the traditional Norway Spruce we offer non-drop varieties such as the Nordman Fir and the narrower Fraser Fir. Additionally, we have potted trees for those who want to keep their tree growing all year round!
All cut trees are displayed without nets so that you can choose exactly the right shape for your home, before it is netted up and carried to your car for you. What’s more, for a more adventurous experience, we offer a ‘cut your own’ service, where you can browse the plantation to choose and chop down your perfect Christmas centrepiece, it’s a family tradition for many local families – don’t forget your wellies! At weekends we also offer free tractor and trailer rides from our undercover shopping area to our tree plantation, where we’ll tell you a bit about how our trees are grown. Also at weekends, our friends from Rivers Meet cafe will be offering refreshments, so why not make it a family day out!
Our team is always on hand to give you advice on how to care for your tree and we also sell Christmas tree stands, as well as holly and wreaths, to complete that festive feel throughout your home. For the little ones, we host special visits for local nursery and infant schools to come and choose their school tree – contact us for more details. Our larger trees are the centrepiece for many village and town displays in the Leeds area every year – if you are a new customer, please get in touch in good time if you would like to order one of these larger trees.
