Friendly rooster enjoys visitors

| October 23, 2017

COSHOCTON COUNTY – Curtis Sampsel showed off this very well behaved rooster to those who took part in the Coshocton County Fall Foliage and Farm Tour. Sampsel is a neighbor to the Bonnie Glen Farm, which was stop number four on the tour. “I like seeing how much people are interested in the animals,” he said. This year’s tour featured sheep, a church that dates back to 1888, longhorn cattle, dairy cows, the Helmick Covered Bridge, Gospel Hill’s lighthouse, Heritage Vineyard and Killbuck Creek Distillery. The drive-it-yourself fall foliage and farm tour was held Oct. 21-22 and was sponsored by the Coshocton County Ohio State University Extension, Soil & Water Conservation District and Farm Service Agency.

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. This year was no exception. The 2017 tour brought close to 1,700 people through the north central section of Coshocton County over the beautiful weekend. These participants represented 10 states and 33 Ohio counties. In fact, 25 percent of the participants who registered live outside of Coshocton County.

The 2018 tour will feature eastern Coshocton County on Oct. 20 and 21. If you took part in this year’s tour, please share your feedback at go.osu.edu/ffft.
