FRAZEYSBURG, Ohio — The Longaberger Company’s Homestead is offering two new basket-making options and a new experiential tour of its famous basket-making facilities.

Visitors can choose from two new baskets to weave with the help of a Longaberger basket-maker in the 19th-century Crawford Barn, the new home for the Make A Basket Shop.

The barn also houses the company’s retired Fan Favorites Baskets, which can be purchased on site.

At J.W.’s Workshop visitors can learn about the company’s history, tour the first Longaberger basket workshop and shop for exclusive baskets made by a Longaberger family member.

Two new tour opportunities are a floor tour led by an expert Longaberger basket-maker and a self-guided mezzanine tour.

A new shopping experience awaits groups at the Longaberger Factory Store and More, formerly the Homestead Shops, where Longaberger products are displayed in home and lifestyle displays and one-of-a-kind, limited quantity baskets and special treasures are shown in the Longaberger Vault.

Groups can also visit the nearby Patio Shops in Dresden to find additional Longaberger merchandise and clearance items or stop by the Longaberger Company Home Office to preview items in the current Longaberger Wishlist. Built in 1997, the seven-story office building is a replica of Longaberger’s Medium Market Basket.
