Wonky Christmas Trees Arrive!
Noah’s Ark is getting in the festive swing as hundreds of wonky Christmas trees arrive on site for sale in its Farm Shop.
We're proud to be one of the first to be stocking wonky Christmas trees for sale this Christmas. Chris Brookes, Catering and Retail Manager at the Zoo described the Christmas trees as, “delightfully different, and perfectly imperfect”.
Brookes continued, “These trees which are sourced locally come in a range of slightly unusual and truly unique shapes, making them full of character!”
In recent years, there has been a surge in the appreciation for 'wonky' vegetables, as consumers embrace the sustainable idea of visually imperfect goods which are still perfectly good to eat and a too good to be thrown away or discarded.
This holiday season, we're advocating for extending this idea to 'Wonky Christmas trees'—a deserving yet overlooked category.
Larry Bush, Managing Director of Noah’s Ark explained, “With the cost-of-living crisis impacting many families across the UK, we are pleased to offer a sustainable and cost-effective way to purchase a traditional Christmas tree, for a fraction of the cost of a typical tree. The figures show that the average price for a standard Christmas tree in the UK this year will be £88. However, our starting price for a real tree is just £25.”
It’s reported that 26% of Brits will have less than £300 in total to cover the costs associated with Christmas, from presents and decorations, to their Christmas tree, food and drink. In light of this, Noah’s Ark is keen to encourage families to consider a wonky Christmas tree this year, and give a unique tree a chance to sparkle.
Bush continued, “We’re very excited to see how our visitors will get creative with their wonky Christmas trees. Some of the trees have two heads, so families won’t have to make the tough decision about who gets the all-important job of placing the star at the top of the tree!”
The public can see the wonky Christmas trees in their full glory at the Wonky Christmas Tree walk-through, included free with Zoo admission, starting from Saturday 25th November. The trees are available to purchase now from Noah’s Ark Farm Shop.
