It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in North East Somerset.
Metro Mayor Dan Norris has cut the tinsel to officially open Farrington’s hanging Christmas tree forest.
Tish and Andy Jeffery and their daughter Erin from Farrington’s promise a huge selection of trees this year including Nordmann Fir, Norway Spruce, Noble Fir and Fraser Fir and are encouraging local residents to visit and pick their perfect Christmas tree.
Tish and Andy took over the farm three decades ago and have been running an annual Christmas tree shop for years. They will then give the Metro Mayor a tour of their Christmas shop and show him their wide range of local produce including seasonal organic veg ideal to get the taste buds tickling at Christmas lunch.
Metro Mayor Dan Norris said: “Farrington’s Christmas trees are really putting me in the festive spirit. Thanks to Tish for sharing her outstanding knowledge of festive firs with me. It’s also just as well I’ve not got started on my Christmas shopping yet, as the selection of fantastic food and drink on sale here will go down a treat. It is yet another reminder of the world-class food and drink producers that we have here in the West of England. Eating local has never tasted so good.”
