Ohio weekend getaways then mark your calendar for Apple Butter Stirring at Yoders Amish Home & Farm. When you enter Holmes County, Ohio you will see beautiful fall colors and that Amish families are harvesting crops and gardens. Mark your calendar for October 6, 13, or 20, 2012 for some old fashioned apple butter stirring as well. The Yoder family gets out their 30 gallon copper kettle and puts in on the open fire early in the morning as they begin to make apple butter. You can even take a turn stirring the apple butter and try a sample. This festival goes on all day. While you are at the farm you may take a guided tour of a couple of Amish homes on the property, go on an Amish buggy ride, visit the barn and see animals wandering around the property. They also have a 1-room schoolhouse where you can learn more about Amish education. Yoder's Amish Home & Farm is located at 6050 State Route 515 between Walnut Creek, Ohio and US 62 (between Berlin and Winesburg).
