Established in 2012, and offering farm-gate choose-your-own Christmas trees during December each year, Richmond Christmas Tree Farm is a family-run business focused on providing beautifully shaped trees and a welcoming atmosphere.


Come along this December to start or continue your REAL Christmas tree tradition.



Farm Open Days


  • Farm Experience

    From our farm you will not only go home with a beautiful locally-grown Christmas tree, but also a head full of rich memories and the beginnings of a new family tradition this Christmas.

    We look forward to seeing you at the farm this Christmas!

    • Tree Tagging Day

      We’re opening the farm gates early this year so you can put a ribbon on your own Christmas tree. You can pick it up later in December, or take it on the day.

      Check out the Facebook event here, to keep up-to-date. Don’t miss out!

      Please note: Full payment on the day, $40 per tree (cash only) and tree stands will be available.

      • Farm Open Days

        The farm gates open each Saturday and Sunday in December, from 10am – 2pm, until the 18th December.

        Be sure to keep up-to-date via our Facebook page.

        Please note: Sometimes the weather effects our opening times and if we start running out of tall trees, we’ll post updates to keep you in the loop.

            • Care Instructions

              Please feel free to download our care instructions PDF for free.

              It’s important to take good care of your real tree so that it’ll look great on the big day!

              The main thing is to keep the water up to it, just like cut flowers, easy-peasy.

              • Tree Stands

                We sell Australian made Christmas tree stands at the farm open days, until sold out.

                The stands are wide and strong, and hold the biggest trees from our farm. They hold plenty of water to keep your tree well hydrated, and are easy to top up. The stands have adjustable supports to make it easy for you to stand your tree up securely. Price: $60 (cash only).

                • Pricing

                  All trees are $40

                  Australian made tree stands are $60

                  Also, we are CASH ONLY.

                  • Love for our trees

                    2016 is our farm’s third year open to the public, and we’ve had some great feedback!

                    Check out some of the lovely things people have said, and some amazing photos of their decorated tree here or here.

                    • Boogie time!

                      We love a boogie during the Christmas season! We made a Christmas mix-tape on Spotify to share with you. There’s new ditties, like our fave White Wine in the Sun, by Tim Minchin and classics like Happy Christmas by John Lennon, even Rudolph gets a guernsey.

                          The Team

                          Hello, we are Nat and Jared Mendham.

                          When we’re not tending to Christmas trees, we’re a commercial photographer and marketer in the tyre industry, respectively. Our twins boys Alex and Jack are keen Christmas tree sales reps and keep an eagle-eye on quality control.

                          Our greyhound x labrador, Flynn, who clearly took this photo, is a one-dog-welcoming-committee at the farm.

                          Our boys were born in Canada, and while we lived there we embraced the tradition of choosing a beautiful Christmas tree from a family farm just outside Vancouver each year. And so, we bought the idea home with us to Tasmania to share with you.

                          We’re looking forward to meeting you this Christmas!


                          Thank you for your support & merry Christmas from…
