Our mobile Towpath Trail Snack Shack catering is a family business dedicated to serving quality food to raise funds toward renovating a barn to become the permanent snack shack on our donated easement!
We cater quality all beef hot dogs, gourmet exotic meat sausages and trail snacks to the bird watchers, bikers, hikers, dog walkers, Tuscarawas River fishermen and canoeist from the Ohio-Erie canal towpath trail where the Greenville peace treaty line intersects 1.5 miles west on Scenic Byway route 212 from Bolivar, Ohio I-77 exit 93.
We sell quality all beef hickory smoked franks (AKA hot dogs), traditional hot dogs, smoked sausages, bratwurst, gourmet exotic meat sausages, French fries, onion rings, sweet corn, coleslaw, potato salad, macaroni salad, baked beans, salads, pickle on a stick, jerky, trail-mix, granola, chips, ice cold Pepsi products, lemonade, bottled water and & more. We purchase quality fresh produce including lettuce, cabbage, carrots, tomatoes, potatoes, and sweet corn from local farmers or auctions whenever possible.
Amish country's Walnut Creek Foods brand All Beef Hickory Smoked Franks are Gluten Free without MSG made using quality cuts of meat! We're sure you'll agree they're the best hot dogs you'll ever chow down! 100% quality beef!
During the Revolutionary war and Ohio Erie canal era's smoked sausage was a common method of preserving meat! We use Smoked Skinless, Smoked Cheesy, Smoked Hot & Spicy, or Cheese & Jalapeño sausage.
If you're into new culinary experiences you'd love our exotic caribou-reindeer sausage special! Reindeer hot dogs are frequently leaner and milder in flavor, tasting similar to venison sausage, but less gamy.
Our gourmet exotic bison bratwurst sausage will be a treat to your taste buds since it's richer in flavor. Bison is healthier than beef because it's lower in saturated fat and a great source of nutrients, it has the basics: zinc, niacin, iron, vitamin B6 and selenium. Come try a Bison Brat soon!
Uncle Mike's Beef Jerky and Sticks are made the old fashioned way in Holmes County by Ohio Amish.

Zoar, Ohio - Free Historic Zoar Speaker Series- November 4 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Historic School House, 221 E. Fourth St. Zoar, OH 44697 United States
November’s FREE speaker is Daniel Rice from the Ohio and Erie Canalway Coalition. Mr. Rice will speak about the Ohio and Erie Canal and its connection with Zoar. The Separatists helped to dig a seven-mile section of the canal and were able to repay their land debts with the money they earned. The canal continued to affect their daily lives even after its completion, as it brought a greater number of tourists and worldly ideas into the area. This presentation will begin at 1 p.m. in the Historic Zoar School House, located at 221 E. 4th St., Zoar, OH 44697. This program is made possible in part by Ohio Humanities, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. https://historiczoarvillage.com/event/free-historic-zoar-speaker-series-9/
