Christmas is our favourite time of the year at Croots Farm Shop. We have everything you could possibly need to have your very own homemade Croots Christmas.
We have a huge selection of food for you to pre-order from traditional Christmas turkeys, festive meats such as gammon, pork joints, rib of beef, pigs in blankets,
award winning sausage meat and fresh festive vegetables such as the Christmas classics, brussel sprouts and parsnips. We also have a delicious range of cheeses, pork pies, sausage rolls, condiments and everybody’s festive favourite, homemade mince pies and local Christmas pudding!
Taste of Christmas


Thursday 18th November, 5.30pm until 8pm.

This will be the perfect chance to preview Croots new Christmas range with the opportunity to enjoy mulled wine and mince pies, and to sample the wares of local suppliers. Special offers will also run during the evening, and our expert team will be on hand to help you plan the perfect local Christmas.

Our ‘Swinging Forest of Enchantment’ will be open from Saturday 27th November right up until Christmas Eve (or while trees last).

Choose from a range of freshly cut, local Derbyshire trees for a super special centrepiece in your home this season. We can help with carrying to the car or you can pull up right in front of the barn so you don’t need to worry about lifting.

We will have non-drop premium cut Nordmann fir trees ranging in size from 4ft to 7ft, plus some potted trees, a range of wreaths and decorations.

The way we set-up our forest is so that you can walk amongst the firs, as they hang from the ceiling of the barn and you can see exactly how the tree will look when it finds its place in your home.

There will also be a wide selection of decorations in the Farm Shop and locally made Christmas wreaths.
