Yes it’s that time of year again! We as a family along with our Ty Cerrig elves are starting to prepare a festive sack full of seasonally smashing ideas to ensure you have great family fun choosing your perfect tree from our farm again this year, making memories taking photos, following the elf trail enjoying a hot chocolate and indulging in a little retail therapy choosing a few extra dec’s and cards
I have been watching closely the updates from the Welsh government and have decided that although things seem to be improving there is still a possibility of change as we go into the winter months - so with this in mind I have decided to leave the safety measures we put in place last year to ensure social distancing and being outdoors as much as possible to give our customers confidence that, with in reason, we will not need to make any last minute changes.
You will need to book a slot to visit - this can be done here on our website the same way as last year. If this will be your first visit to us please follow the instructions in the ‘by appointment ‘ section to reserve your time slot to visit the farm, the booking system ensures we spread out our visitors so everyone can have the space to enjoy themselves safely, plus it gives you a parking space, opportunity to wander round the farm, choose your tree, visit the outside cafe, the new shop, and for the children to follow the elf trail, your booking fee will then be deducted from your tree purchase.
By booking a time slot we can guarantee that there will be plenty of queue free space for you to wander around enjoying the farm choosing your own fresh Ty Cerrig Tree and filling your tree sledge with goodies such as wreathes stands and tree decorations.
Treat the little elves in your life to an enchanting woodland walk with elf-citng things to spot and prizes to be won. Peep into Santa's cabin, post your your magic Christmas letters, take a photo with Big Rudie and friends then stop off on a yuletide log-bench for a rest with a hot drink and Christmas cookie to warm your frosty fingers!
We are all about family at ty Cerrig and this includes our local family. Our school cash back scheme enables participating schools to receive money back from your tree purchase in the new year - simply select your school from the drop down in the appointment menu to earn cash back for your school!

The Reynolds family took over Ty Cerrig Christmas tree farm in 2017. The family background is in Christmas trees and Stephen, with help from his wife Helen and Children Charlie Kate Bill and Fred runs a large wholesale Christmas tree business from the family farm in Beguildy, Mid Wales. The family have been involved in the growing and selling of Christmas trees for over 25 years and enjoyed every minute of it, Christmas is all about family, fun, friends food and treasured memories all centered around your very own Christmas tree, and the family take great pride growing and helping everyone of their customers to select their own person perfect tree. Helen oversees the retail outlets and also runs ‘3cheers for jolly good Christmas trees’ pop up shops.
As the Children have grown up they have carried their love of trees and Christmas fun with them, Charlie now runs his own Christmas tree Farm in Keele where he has settled and made wonderful friends. Bill and Kate have stayed true to their welsh roots, Kate working in Cardiff and Bill combining managing his sheep flock with the growing and maintenance of the Ty Cerrig trees, Both Bill and Helen look forward to personally welcoming visitors to Ty Cerrig again this year to choose from the wide selection of home grown trees plus the freshly supplied selection of trees delivered from the larger Powys Farm this all ensures they have the right tree for everyone. This just leaves Fred as a free sprits dashing from place to place filling in the festive gaps in the staffing serving customers and some would say - doing all the work - this may be why Fred holds the family record for the most tips!
To get the most out of your Christmas tree this year, follow these guidelines.
It is advisable to let a freshly cut Christmas tree stand for a day or so outside in a bucket of water before taking the tree into the house.
We recommend you treat your Christmas tree like a cut flower, cut 1/2 inch off the trunk (stem) before putting it in water holding stand.
Keep it topped up with water as you will be surprised a just how much it will drink.
Display as far away from a heat source as possible, not next to a radiator or that roaring open fire or wood burner.
Remember, the better watered and cooler you can keep it, the longer it will last.
