Derbyshire farm shop Croots is raising money for local children’s charity Treats through the sale of Christmas trees.
The Duffield farm shop is donating £1 for every tree sold to the charity, which is its nominated good cause for the year.
The fir trees are grown locally and fit in with Croots’ policy of selling local and regional produce where possible.
As part of its festive selection, Croots is also creating a range of Christmas sausages, featuring mulled wine sausages and fig-flavoured sausages.
The store at Farnah House Farm, Wirksworth Road, is also adding a seasonal twist to its own-brand farmyard range of beers, with a Rudolph ale – a dark ale brewed by Nutbrook Brewery.
Croots, run by Steve Croot, is currently taking orders for turkeys and other Christmas meats.
“We have supported Treats Children’s Charity for the past year and are hoping to raise a little extra from the sale of Christmas trees, which is something we are doing for the first time this year,” said Steve.
Croots is open Tuesday to Saturday from 9am to 5pm and on Sundays from 10am to 4pm.
