Geauga County - A Gourmet Get-A-Way!

by Geauga County Tourism Council

‘In the know’ visitors to Geauga County arrive with a large empty cooler to take home their souvenirs.
In Chardon’s Historic downtown area, stop at Sage’s Apples for seasonal  berries, peaches, and of course apples! Looking for Maple BBQ sauce? Maple cotton candy? Maple coffee? Maple dog treats? Richards Maple Products is your stop! If it’s close to lunch time, gourmet pizza at Noce or tea at Rosepointe Cottage are excellent choices. Summer Friday nights offer an amazing Farm Market on Historic Chardon Square with an open air concert.

During the growing season Geauga Fresh Farmers Market in South Russell is a wonderful place to find locally grown/produced everything! From veggies to meat, flowers to herbs,

If healthy, fresh, local food, interests you than a stop at Sirna's Farm is in order.  Sirna's takes care of the environment by avoiding chemicals and show that farmers can work with the environment to get higher yields. PLUS their pickles are amazing!!!

In Burton you’ll have to personally decide on your favorite chocolate with stops at Buckeye Chocolate and White House Chocolate.  Either way you win! While Geauga Farms Country Meats will provide you with the freshest, tastiest meat you’ve ever had.  

Next stop Middlefield, the heart of the 4th largest Amish community in the world! And here you have two amazing stores to shop for your favorites! At Middlefield Cheese Co-op you can watch cheese production through their large window that overlooks the factory floor.  Middlefield Cheese offers a museum that showcases their history.

Of course no trip is complete without fresh bakery! Amish Home Craft & Bakery, Countryside Home Bakery, and Nauvoo Family Market  are brimming with home-baked goodness! Of course, no dessert until you have had dinner and Mary Yoder’s Amish Kitchen is a perfect choice.  Now that your cooler is full of take home treats and you are too full to move…you just may want to spend the night!
