SCHOOLCHILDREN from Somerset are this month (April, 2017) being invited to visit a Christmas tree farm in the county for an educational day out.
Langford Lakes Christmas Tree Farm, which is based at Middle Hill Farm in Langford Budville, is offering schools in the area to get in touch if they would like a tour of its working farm.
Reg Hendy, owner of Langford Lakes Christmas Tree Farm, said: “We’re based over 40 acres and a woodland runs the length of the plantations, either side of a stream. This area is home to a multitude of plants and wildlife, in particular rare lesser spotted orchids, deer and occasionally otters.
“We would like to invite schools in the area to visit us for a school trip. We will take them on a guided tour of the plantation and explain to them how we farm the Christmas trees and also how we help and attract wildlife to the farm.”
Langford Lakes Christmas Tree Farm, which is well-known for its home grown, freshly cut Christmas trees, is a family run farm located close to the nature reserve Langford Heathfield, a mile outside of Langford Budville in Somerset.
The farm is owned and run by Reg and his wife Ann and their two sons, Shaun and Nick. The family has been growing and selling Christmas trees for more than 20 years.
