Since 1983, Mt. Cory’s Kaleidoscope Farms has been a holiday destination for local families looking for the perfect Christmas tree. Dave Reese started the farm on a single acre, but it now stretches 26-acres and is home to eight different varieties of tree, with something for everyone who feels that when it comes to Christmas, “artificial” just won’t do. Now, there’s even more, as Kaleidoscope Farms can help you get a jump on your holiday shopping as you pick out your tree, with a new gift shop opened this November. The shop features heartwarming handicrafts and knickknacks, Swan Creek Candles, wreaths and other festive decorations. There’s bound to be something to make your holiday season a little cheerier. 14841 County Rd. 54, Rawson, 419-722-1154. www.kaleidoscopefarms.com.
