How it all began.

Nearly 10 years ago!

My Christmas Barn is a family run business started from an idea by Steve around 10 years ago.  Steve wanted to grow Christmas Trees so set out to find the right location. Our first crop went in the ground in 2015.  Soon we had nearly 14,000 saplings and growing every year.

To get started we first bought some trees from a local supplier and sold them from a shed.
These quickly sold out and soon people were asking for decorations etc…

The idea of My Christmas Barn was born.

Christmas trade fairs start in January and we had soon placed our first stock orders.
Opening the Christmas Barn in November 2016 was nerve-wracking but successful
and 2017 saw the barn extended, an inviting log burner installed
and the arrival of many new products.

We believe in offering a happy, friendly service and love to have the time to chat with
our customers.

Three generations of the family are now involved – Mum & Dad, Son & Daughter-in-law & Grandchildren – we all love Christmas & everyone mucks in.
