Hello and welcome to West Hyde. We are the Garwoods and we are a family run small holding just between Tillingham and St Lawrence. With the family being made up of Molly, Richard, Penny, Meg and Jack. Unfortunately we were a six but sadly lost Mick in the summer of 2020.
For 40 years we were a Pick Your Own fruit farm selling Strawberries and Raspberries, so you may remember us from days coming and picking and eating our strawberries up until 2016, though hopefully not until you had paid! Unfortunately the ground was no longer able to produce strawberries so we thought we would try something new.
In 2019 we planted our first 800 Christmas trees, with the hope to plant another 600-800 each year until the farm is brimming with trees! Then once the first years plantation is empty will will start all over again. That’s the plan anyway!
As we learn about the art of growing, pruning and generally looking after Christmas trees we will keep you up to date with whats going on all year round. Turns out these trees aren’t just for Christmas.
I guess thats all for know so have a look around the website and we look forward to seeing you all in December.
