The Galehouse Farms have been in the family since 1815 (six generations). Galehouse Tree Farms started selling Christmas Trees, cut-your-own, in 1932. That makes us one of the older, perhaps the oldest choose and cut farms in Ohio. We also wholesale cut Christmas trees and balled & burlapped trees for landscaping.
Harry Galehouse started selling Christmas trees from a 10 acre plot. Since then the second, third and fourth generations are keeping the farms going. We now have 180,000 evergreen trees in cultivation on 200 acres. The farms are presently owned and operated by Shirley Galehouse and her daughter Amy. The field manager helps us with the 20 or more students from our local high school, who trim trees in the summer and do the wholesale and retail harvesting in the winter. Most of our trees are sold from Thanksgiving to mid-December. That makes very busy weekends.
In 1979 we started a small gift shop. It has grown larger each year. At one barn we set up The Tree House gift shop and retail trees, in another we make all of our wreaths, centerpieces, specialty roping, and other greens pieces. All of the designing and decorating is done by Shirley and Amy, both of whom have studied at the Hixson School of Floral Design in Lakewood.
