We've heard good reports about past Holmes County Farm Bureau tours.  Expected to be educational and fun, the 2011 Holmes County Farm tour will take place Saturday, August 20, 2011, 8 a.m. - 6 p.m.  Your self-driving tour will begin at the Holmes County Fairgrounds at 8381 St. Rt. 39 in Millersburg, Ohio.  Maps will be given to participants at the fairgrounds.  The tour inclues farms and businesses representing beef, dairy, sheep, bees, alpacas, pottery, electric company, waste management, candy, timber-framing, and an Amish school.  For information call Denny Snell at 419-827-2220 or Andy Stitzlein at 419-651-1670.

Experience farm atmosphere at the Millersburg, Ohio Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast where you'll sleep in a beautifully restored dairy barn.  A hot country breakfast is served daily and innkeepers share Amish culture and history.
