Farm Fresh in Adamsville

With the increased interest in farm-to-table experiences, a group of businesses in rural Muskingum County have joined together to promote themselves as Experience Adamsville.

I joined them for a box lunch underneath a large shed at McDonald’s Greenhouse, where owner Susan McDonald gave me an overview of the group opportunities in her area.

Susan and her husband, James, who raise beef, corn and soybeans, have operated their seasonal flower-filled greenhouse for 20 years.

They have expanded their operation in the fall to include a five-acre corn maze, a pumpkin patch, hayrides, bonfires, games, a petting zoo and agricultural exhibits.

Experience Adamsville also includes Dorsets N Daylilies, with more than 300 kinds of daylilies; Spring Acres, which features 60 alpacas; Spiker Springs Products, which combines herbs and antiques in a 200-year-old barn and will do group meals; KD Guest Ranch, which will also do group meals; Gifts From the Garden, a smaller greenhouse; Bush Valley Farm, which raises sheep and hogs; and Mill’s Bulk Food and Deli, a large Amish operation.
