In Bellville, You Can Buy a Christmas Tree and Rent a Reindeer


Ginnie BakerThere are a lot of great things about living in Bellville, Ohio, from year ‘round activities to the beautiful hilly scenery. One of the fun things to do is visit KleerView Farm in Bellville, owned by Debbie and Kevin Kleer.

On their beautiful Christmas tree farm, you can select that perfect tree, tag it, and then arrive when you’re ready to get the tree. You can cut it yourself or the Kleers will cut it for you and bag it, ready for the trip to your home to be decorated for Christmas. They also have a tree stand called “The Marriage Saver.”

Kleerview Farm 

cowsThe Kleers' farm has 225 acres with some in Christmas trees and the rest farmed to feed the 65 Angus brood cows they have on the farm.

They planted the first trees in 1981 when they planted 1,000 trees. They’ve been slowly expanding ever since, each year planting approximately 3,000 trees in the spring to help maintain the production of 17,000 trees on 15 acres of the farm.

The Kleers have between 350 and 400 visitors a year from Ohio, Michigan, Washington, D.C., Pennsylvania, and those who come back home to Bellville for the holiday and take a tree back. Their trees have gone to 44 communities in Ohio, and to Iraq and Kuwait.
