“Jingle-bells, Jingle-bells, Jingle all the way,
Oh, what fun it is to ride a one-horse open sleigh…”
“Wait, mom, wait. What is a one-horse open sleigh?”
“Oh, well, I think it means that one horse is pulling a sleigh with an open top.”
“O'er the fields we go, laughing all the way
Bells on bobtail ring…”
“Mom, what is a bellsonbob-tail?”
“Ummm…Well…Uh…I’m not really sure. You know what, let’s load up and go to Kaleidoscope Farms, I bet they’ll know there. They have horses and a sleigh with bells.”
“Alright mom, that sounds great!”
Kaleidoscope Farms offers all of the charm of an old fashioned Christmas, complete with a horse drawn open sleigh when the snow falls and bells ringing on their bobbed tails. The country charm is easy to see in the beautiful rural Hancock county setting for the farm and the rows of carefully manicured Christmas trees spreading out in every direction. After a pleasant winter stroll, guests are welcome to warm up in the cozy, wood-fired warm gift shop. There are ample shopping options along with hand made wreaths and greens, home baked cookies and cinnamon rolls and complimentary hot cider. And this year, for the first time, the Lima Beane Men’s Barbershop Chorus will be strolling the fields and performing at the farm on Sunday Dec. 2 to add an additional element of Christmas cheer.
“We want the people who take time to come out here and share the holidays with our family to find the wonderful Christmas atmosphere they usually can only sing about in all of the old Christmas carols,” said Dave Reese, owner of Kaleidoscope Farms. “Out here they won’t find a shopping mall or a traffic jam, just a simple country Christmas experience on the farm. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate and we’ll even have some snow for the horses to pull the sleigh.”
Kaleidoscope Farms offers 10 varieties of fir, pine and spruce trees, dug trees, tree delivery and plenty of decorations to Deck the Halls. Celebrate the First Noel this year with a White Christmas in the Winter Wonderland at the farm complete with Jingle Bells, Silver Bells, the Holly and the Ivy, and plenty of fun Christmas tunes sung in true barbershop style.
