A beautiful, deep green black hills spruce from Kaleidoscope Farms in Hancock County was selected as this year’s Grand Champion Christmas Tree at the Ohio State Fair.
“We really enjoy taking a tree to the State Fair because it is a fun way to showcase the hard work that goes into growing high quality Christmas trees,” said Dave Reese, owner of Kaleidoscope Farms. “We entered one tree this year and were fortunate that it was selected for the top prize. It is a real honor.”
The tree was also the champion spruce in the competition of trees submitted from around the state. The Grand Champion Christmas Tree from Kaleidoscope Farms was on display throughout the Ohio State Fair in the Ag and Hort Building at the Ohio Christmas Tree Association display.
Kaleidoscope Farms also had the Ohio State Fair Grand Champion Christmas Tree in 2004 with a white pine entry and the Reserve Champion in 2012 with a Canaan fir.
