Christmas trees proudly nurtured by a team working on a farm providing training opportunities to those with disabilities are now on sale.
The locally-grown Christmas trees are now available to buy from Brooke Farm in Linby.
Most of the trees on sale were grown at a site in Skegby and then brought to Linby and nurtured by service users at the farm, which is run by Nottinghamshire County Council.
Spruce trees are available for £25 and Nordmans are for sale for £40 along with tree stands at £15.99.
All Christmas tree sales go back into providing training opportunities for people with disabilities to help improve their life and social skills.
There is also a Christmas event at the farm this Saturday (26) where visitors can enjoy mulled wine and mince pies whilst browsing the crafts, pottery and jewellery stalls.
Homemade cakes, Christmas cakes and produce from the farm shop are also available to buy at the event and there is face painting and a Santa for children.
Councillor Muriel Weisz, Chair of Nottinghamshire County Council’s Adult Social Care and Health Committee, said: “All trees on sale at Brooke Farm are either grown in the county or are from a UK source so it is a much ‘greener’ option compared to buying an imported tree from other shops.”
Brooke Farm is a commercial enterprise growing vegetables and plants for sale to the general public. The farm employs staff with mixed abilities and offers training to people with disabilities.
The farm shop offers a range of home-grown produce for sale, including free range eggs, seasonal vegetables, salad and fruit, flowers and plants along with locally-sourced products such as bread, milk, preserves, pickles, cakes and biscuits.
Brooke Farm is located on Main Street, Linby, and is open Monday to Thursday 8am to 3.45pm, Friday 8am to 3.15pm and Saturday 8am to 3pm.
