2018 Fall Foliage and Farm Tour recap

| October 22, 2018

COSHOCTON – Coshocton County OSU Extension, Coshocton Soil & Water Conservation District, and Farm Service Agency thank everyone who participated in the 2018 Coshocton County Fall Foliage and Farm Tour. A special thank you to the tour stop hosts –The Animal Boutique & Villas, Coshocton County Antique Power Association and Jim Ronhausen, Wills Dairy Farm, Millcreek Beachy Farm and the Lillibridge family, Bakersville Community Church, TMK Bakersville, Rainbow Hills Winery, and Wooly Pig Farm Brewery  – for the local education and hospitality they and their volunteers provided. Agriculture is the number one industry in our nation, in the state of Ohio, and here in Coshocton County. These stops represent the diversity of the county’s valuable agricultural enterprises.

Many local residents volunteer their time, energy and resources to ensure the success of this annual tour. Though the leaves were mostly green, rain was in the forecast, and Sunday boasted a high of only 45 degrees, the 48th annual tour brought over 1,300 people through the northeast section of Coshocton County over the weekend. These participants represented five states and 29 Ohio counties. In fact, 25 percent of the participants who registered live outside of Coshocton County. What a wonderful way to draw individuals into Coshocton County and to feature and support local ag-based businesses and industries.

The 2019 tour will feature eastern Coshocton County on Oct. 19 and 20. If you took part in this year’s tour, please share your feedback at go.osu.edu/ffft18.
