In late spring the vast fields of Fulton Farms gleam red with the season‘s first strawberries, and in the fall, an endless landscape of orange pumpkins await carving and baking. The largest contiguous farm east of the Mississippi, Fulton Farms specializes in a variety of produce. An easily accessible farm market allows visitors to shop for fresh fruits and vegetables, gourmet foods, Old World ornaments, among other unique gift items.

The market cafe inside the same location, offers Boston Stoker coffees, espresso, soups, desserts, ice cream, yogurt and homemade bread. Coinciding with each season, visitors to the farm can pick their own strawberries in early June, take a hay ride to find a pumpkin in October or brave the weather to take down their own Christmas tree in November and December. 25 miles from Sidney.

Biking

Hop on your bike and follow the path of the Great Miami River and the Miami & Erie Canal as it meanders through beautiful Miami County. Bike paths run along the Miami River levee in both Troy and Piqua and at Piqua’s Lock Nine Park. Take note that Tipp City’s new bike path is nearing completion. Biking is also permitted on state routes and township roads. Cyclists are asked to observe traffic rules and use extreme caution.

Experience the gentle rolling country on wheels – where parks and historic sites will soon be connected by a system of paved, well-maintained bike trails. With the City of Piqua leading the way, Miami County will soon become connected by a unified bike path. To be known as the Miami County Bikeway, plans are in the works to connect Tipp City with Piqua, with other connections eventually taking cyclists to Cincinnati, Yellow Springs and beyond. Piqua already has a 13-mile “loop” in place that takes cyclists through both the city and country. The proposed bikeway begins at the southern Miami County border, connecting to the Montgomery County Metro Parks trail system that could one day connect to Cincinnati. Entering Tipp City, trail users will pass through four parks, the historic downtown district and right past the Great Miami River. Much of the trail is planned to follow the old Miami-Erie Canal tow path. Reaching Troy, the path will make its way through the city and its attractions before reaching a long stretch of country where it will meet the existing Piqua trail.
