Our Story

At Riverview Christmas Tree Farm in Canton, we are a family business that focuses on bringing holiday traditions to your family. Opened in 1989 by Bill and Darlene Keizer, the Riverview Christmas Tree Farm has been a staple in family traditions. In 2016, Todd and Shari Gannon took ownership and hope to continue their legacy for many years to come.

Now, thousands of people visit the farm each year. Riverview Tree Farm is a place where families make memories and establish traditions. With new features and entertainment added yearly, there's always something new to see and do. We hope you join us!

The land itself is not without its own exciting history. Come see where American outlaws, Jesse and Frank James made their way through the area and learn their story.

Please see our FAQs below. If you don't see an answer to your question, please contact us and we'll be happy to assist you.

Christmas Season

Riverview Christmas Tree Farm opens for the Christmas season every year on the weekend before Thanksgiving until we sell out of trees.

Do I need to bring my own supplies to cut down my tree?

No, we provide everything you need including saws to cut it down and twine to secure it to your vehicle. Chainsaws ARE NOT allowed due to safety concerns. Please do not bring one to the farm. If you need help cutting down your tree, please ask us for help and we would be happy to assist you.

Do you have trees larger than 12 feet tall for sale?

No, we have no trees for sale that are taller than 12 feet. The large trees we do have will no longer be available for cutting as we want to preserve the environment for wildlife and maintain a beautiful scenic view.

The average height of our groomed trees are 6-10 foot tall. The trees for sale have price tags on them with the height.
