Warwickshire Christmas Trees is a small family business in the Cotswolds. Mike lived most of his life in South Africa and loves being outside doing practical work – his summer business is swimming pools! Carey comes from a Norfolk farming family and, with dogs Kai and Zak, also enjoys the outdoor life. Mike’s son Ollie, now in his late teens, has been involved from the beginning and is gaining lots of valuable business experience which will hopefully help him in the future.
About our real trees
We planted our first 5000 trees in 2014 shortly after buying our small holding at Kestrel Ridge, between Tysoe and Shenington on the Oxfordshire / Warwickshire border, near the towns of Shipston on Stour in Warwickshire & Banbury in Oxfordshire.
We’ve continued to plant a mixture of varieties each year, and are now starting to harvest some of the faster growing trees. A 6 foot Nordman fir takes 6-8 years, and a lot of care and attention to grow into a beautiful tree ready for sale, so for the first few years we have partnered with another farm near Ledbury in Herefordshire to supply our larger trees. These are premium trees which have been very well received by our customers.
