Scottish Christmas tree farm for sale

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 | BUSINESS SALE

It might only be 4 September, but that's just 112 days until Christmas, the perfect time to consider buying a Christmas tree business!

And surprisingly enough, there's a Christmas tree farm up for sale in Scotland as the sellers are seeking to consolidate their business at another location.

Maviston Christmas Tree Farm in Nairn, on the shores of the Moray Firth, includes 675,000 trees spread across the farm's 250,000 acres.

The current owners are seeking to shift their focus to their other Christmas tree farms in the south and central regions of Scotland. They have left Maviston ready to provide an immediate income for the new buyer.

The sale is being handled by Savills, who noted that the farm is “a great investment opportunity”.

Alastair Gemmell from the agency commented: “The 675,000 trees which are currently growing here have the potential to provide excellent returns in the years ahead, and there is scope for further planting. However, a new owner may decide to return the 250 acres to agricultural land, or to put in place alternative development plans.

“The demand for Nordmann fir trees continues to rise as they become more popular, and Maviston is well placed to benefit from this expanding market.”

There is no house included in the sale but the agents are expecting a lot of interest from people who are already operating in the industry, or a newcomer to the sector, who would have the option of receiving guidance from the sellers to set them up in business.

The farm is on the market for offers over £3.2 million. The Christmas tree industry in the UK is worth around £200 million a year.
