Celebrating with Christmas Pears

A gift of pears has been part of Christmas Celebrations for hundreds of years. The pear tree is featured in the all-time children’s favourite 12 days of Christmas with the line “and a partridge in a pear tree”.
Did you know that pear trees symbolize comfort for some and Jesus’s love to others? The ancient Chinese believed that the pear was a symbol of immortality, an old pear tree came to symbolize long life and good fortune.
We have planted 20,000 Conference trees next to Teynham church at Conyer which seems an appropriate location at this festive time of year.
So, from everyone at Blackbird Farming we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.


It’s the kids’ favourite day of the year. Keep up the good work – Open Farm Sunday
