Dartmoor Christmas Tree Farm is an ethical family-run business based on 40 acres of land in the heart of Dartmoor. A member of the British Christmas Tree Growers Association (BCTGA), we have won over 30 national awards for our sustainably sourced trees and wreaths since 2003, more than any other grower.
Formed in 1990, we have built a reputation for quality and regularly supply many garden centres throughout Devon, Cornwall and Somerset. Since being taken over by current owners Stuart and Jennie Kirkup in 2002, we have successfully developed our own retail outlet, Haldon Christmas Tree Centre in Haldon Forest, in partnership with the Forestry Commission.
Proud to be recognised nationally for the quality of our work – our wreaths were presented to 10 Downing Street five years in a row – the local environment is also immensely important to us. That’s why we replace every tree that is sold with at least one planted and our staff are all either friends, family or sourced from the local job centre.
In 2016 we made the unprecedented feat of winning all 3 top honours and 4 other best in categories at the BCTGA annual competition:
Best Wreath Undecorated, Best Wreath Decorated, UK Champion Wreath, Best Norway Spruce, Best Other Fir (Fraser Fir), Runner Up Champion Grower (Norway Spruce), UK Champion Grower 2016 (Fraser Fir).
We were proud and honoured to be supplying the Outdoor Tree, Indoor Tree and Front Door Wreath to 10 Downing Street for Christmas that year.
This year 2019, we are delighted to have once again been crowned UK Christmas Tree Grower Of The Year and we will once again be supplying 10 Downing Street with their tree this Christmas.
We came away with 4 awards
Best Natural Wreath
Runner up Best Fir (other)
Best Nordman Fir
