Hertzog Homestead

Scott Hertzog, your host, grew up in this Mennonite home while his parents farmed barley, corn, alfalfa, soybeans, and sorghum, and raised beef cattle. Today, the farm is operated by Amish and Mennonite neighbors. You’ll often see horse-drawn farm machinery out in the fields.

The Hertzog Homestead Bed and Breakfast is celebrating 15 years of business and has grown to include the award-winning Bed & Breakfast with four boutique style private suites, a rustic barn Event Venue and cozy Spa Cottage, offering therapeutic massages.

Scott has a passion for genealogical research and recently wrote a book “My First 250 Years: The Story of the Hertzog Homestead.”  His wife, Kristen is an entrepreneur, Performance Coach and has a diverse background including having been an actor at Sight & Sound Theatres, and an Amish tour guide at Plain and Fancy Farms Amish House.

The Hertzogs sponsor the one-day Annual Hope for Haiti Benefit Auction on the property in May, where Amish, Mennonite, and local neighbors come together to raise financial support for education and business development programs in the country of Haiti. Country auction, food, children activities and more!
