We will start the day by meeting our guide for the day Ridgeview Farms.  We will then go to Emma Miller's home where we will enjoy Pumpkin cookies and coffee or tea in her kitchen.  Learn about how Emma preserves food for her family.  Visit her bakery and gift shop and see her secret stash of beautiful homemade Amish quilts, rugs, wall hangers and many other handmade items. Take home a loaf of pumpkin Bread.

Next we will go to Sage's Farm where we will visit this family owned apple orchard.  Take a tour of the orchard and learn about how Sage's grow and harvest over 42 different varieties of apples.  You will have time to shop in their wonderful farm market.  Before leaving the orchard take a taste of their famous cider!  Take home a bad of apples.

For lunch we will go to an Amish home.  The menu includes: meatloaf, real mashed potatoes and gravy, seasonal vegetables, seven layer salad, Amish date nut pudding, fresh bread and of course Amish pies.  Coffee and tea will be served.  A guarantee that no one will leave hungry!

Middlefield Swiss Cheese House will be our stop after lunch.  Here you can taste samples of fine chase as you browse through the cheese store.  A variety of cheeses are available for purchase.  Visit the museum and see how the cheese industry has changed over the years.  Take home a bag of cheese.

Ridgeview Farm and Country Market -  Relax as you take a hayride thru the fields and look over the valley and enjoy the fall foliage.  Learn about the daily operation of a real working farm.  The Grover's are proud to share the history of this farm, which was purchased in 1926.  They will also make sure you take a seasonal treat that reflect the current season.  Visit the newly expanded country market to purchase fresh produce in season.  Take home a  small pumpkin.

Last but not least, we will go to the End of the Commons.  Tour the newly extended store.  Before ending your day you can drop back in time with a trip to Mesopotamia.  Visit a popular landmark, the oldest operating general store in Ohio.
