Gower Fresh Christmas Trees

Gower Fresh Christmas Trees is home to the now fifth generation Morgan family and is run by Robert Morgan who grows over 500,000 Christmas trees on the Gower Peninsula. Our first trees were planted in 1997 but it was only in 2006 when we were able to sell our first trees.

Now in 2018 we are Wales’s largest Christmas Tree growers and solely grow and specialize in growing high quality Christmas trees at the farm.   This hard learning curve culminated in Gower Fresh Trees winning the British Christmas Trees Growers Association “Grower of the Year Award 2017” and the accolade of supplying the Prime Minister’s tree which stood proudly outside 10 Downing Street and Robert taking a trip to meet Theresa May in London in December 2017.

We are proud to say we are also home to the largest reindeer herd in Wales. To date we have over 34 reindeer, some of which have lived at the farm for over 14 years. Our herd are very much part of the family and roam freely and happily in their 20 plus acres

Gower Fresh Christmas Trees is also the home of Father Christmas and his magical Winter Wonderland. When you come to choose your tree you can also enter the snowy kingdom. Once inside your journey through the snowy land begins. You will see a family of polar bears relaxing in the snow, trees that spring into life and speak, elves busy making toys, Santa’s sleigh being loaded ready for Christmas Eve and you can even sit in it and feel the magic. At the end of your adventure and possibly a snow shower or two, you will meet Father Christmas and his reindeer and maybe if you have been on the ‘GOOD’ list, get a present.

Humble Beginnings

Gower Fresh Christmas Trees, was once a typical farm with 500 breeding sheep, 200 cattle, a sheepdog, chickens and even a horse which was once a Grand National winner and which was bred on the farm.

Due to a foot and mouth outbreak and poor returns in the livestock markets, Robert decided there was a gap in the market for quality, sensibly priced Christmas Trees.   He had always enjoyed the family tradition and experience of choosing a tree but was inevitably disappointed with the choice on offer and the quality available, so he decided ‘why not plant your own!’

The first batch was planted by Robert, in 1997, together with his late father Mr David Morgan, whom Robert managed to persuade to provide a field to plant them in. Nearly 6000 Christmas trees were hand planted, which fed the rabbits well and were also over-fertilised which resulted in most of them dying.

OUR GOALS

At Gower Fresh Christmas Trees, Robert and his team aim to grow the perfect affordable Christmas Tree for their customers, a tree which will last well throughout the Christmas period and beyond.

Creating a magical Christmas experience for visitors from the moment they enter the gates of the farm, for both children and adults.  Whether this is meeting Santa for the very first time and believing in him, seeing and feeding the Reindeer in their natural surroundings or for the whole family to find that perfect tree amongst the fields which will be the focal point at home for a wonderful and magical Christmas.
