October 1 & 2, 2016 from 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm

For more than 40 years, agricultural awareness has been the aim of the Heart of Ohio Tour. The Tour is held the first weekend in October each year and serves to heighten the awareness of visitors concerning agriculture in Knox County. The organizations and businesses spotlighted open their doors to the public to inform visitors of the workings of the business. Demonstrations of farm and factory machinery give visitors an idea of what goes into the agri-business industry. Business owners and operators are available to answer any questions that may come up about their operation. Granges and other organizations often open their doors to visitors so they can inform them about their activities. Volunteer fire departments and emergency care units are also available to share information about the services offered and give tours of their facilities. The Heart of Ohio Tour is a great opportunity for a family outing in the fall, with much to see, do and learn. Signs are posted along the tour route.
