Ready for a cheesy adventure? Take a trip down to Yaggi’s Cheese House! A little slice of dairy heaven, established in 1924, that’s still run by the same family in the heart of Amish Country.

Despite its dairy-forward name, Yaggi’s isn’t only about cheese. It’s more of a mini local fair, with jams, maple syrup, and all those old-fashioned treats you crave. Perfect for when you want to step back from the digital buzz and savor life’s simple joys.

Sometimes, they even spice things up with live music. You’ll sit back with your loved ones, a hunk of artisanal cheese in hand, and tunes that take you back in time; that’s Yaggi’s.

Hershberger Farm

  • Address: 5452 OH-557, Millersburg, OH
  • Opening Hours: Store and Bakery; 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Monday to Saturday, closed on Sunday | Farm; 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Monday to Saturday

Hershberger’s Farm food truck is an absolute highlight for many of our guests, especially for those brave enough to take on the “Hershberger,” a massive burger layered with sausage, bacon, hamburger, and oozing melted cheese, served with all the fixings. It’s a culinary adventure you won’t soon digest or remember.

Not a big meat eater? No problem. Hershberger’s kettle corn stall is a sensory treat, too. Anyone who visits is surrounded by an aroma of corn popping over an open fire.

And then there’s the petting zoo, a favorite for families. You’ll meet various friendly animals, from playful goats and fluffy bunnies to majestic horses and curious cows.

Sweetwater Farms

  • Address:  217 Buckeye Street, Sugarcreek, OH
  • Opening Hours: Wednesday to Saturday; 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. | Sunday; 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Any animal lovers in the house? Well, gear up for a quirky day out at Sweetwater Farms. It’s not your average green pasture – think more “animal party” than “farmers market.” You won’t find food trucks or veggie stands, but you will discover animals with more personality than a sitcom cast.

It’ll be something other than your mixed-used grocery go-to, like some other markets on this list. But the emphasis on laughs, clucks, and learning a thing or two from a donkey, make it a must for your itinerary.

Troyer Market

  • Opening Hours: Monday to Thursday and Saturday; 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. | Friday: 8:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.

Troyer Market other than a cornucopia of delights where the produce section is a literal rainbow of farm freshness. Foodies, to the front! Think candy onions sweeter than your grandma’s compliments and strawberries that might start a summer romance.

Better yet, Katie’s Café, the latest addition to the market, is like a cozy kitchen away from home, serving up homemade goodness on the spot. If you need stimulation, its DIY peanut butter and honey station will be right up your alley.
