On Monday, April 8, 2024, people within a 124-mile-wide band in the state of Ohio will experience a total solar eclipse. This includes Bellwether Farm. Come for the day or the weekend to experience this once in a lifetime event. Come Saturday or Sunday and spend the night in our primitive camping sites (pond area), cabins (sleeps 10), or in private retreat rooms (single or double occupancy). The festival will include live music with local bands in the Emily Murray amphitheater, time with the animals, volunteer opportunities on the farm, a fishing derby, the Bellwether food truck, and all farm-to-table meals. Nerd out during this once in a lifetime solar event!
Registration closes March 25, or until we reach capacity. Eclipse glasses and a waterproof picnic blanket are included in each registration.
