Welcome

Welcome to Mt. Hope Auction, the hub of livestock, hay, and produce auctions in Holmes County, Ohio. With many years of experience in this business, we built our reputation as the go-to place for farmers, traders, and agricultural enthusiasts who want to obtain top-quality agricultural products or sell their livestock to the highest bidder. Livestock, hay, and produce sales occur every week, providing a range of livestock, hay, straw, ear corn, and even firewood. We also hold several periodic sales, including the Mid-Ohio Draft Horse & Carriage Sale, Machinery Sale, and the Mid-Ohio Alternative Bird and Animal sale. Each of these sales is held three times a year.


You can also find the Farmers Produce Auction one mile west of Mt. Hope. Sales here begin in February and run through November. Fresh produce, flowers, and fall decorations that come straight from the farm are all provided. We stay busy with our dairy sales, Back to Farm Stock Cow and Feeder Calf Sales, and Friesian/Friesian cross sales held on the first Saturday of each May, while the Memorial Trotting Sale is on the Friday of Memorial Day weekend.


At Mt. Hope Auction, we take pride in bestowing our customers with the highest level of satisfaction. Therefore, we work closely with our buyers and sellers to provide personalized services and ensure that transactions go smoothly. A goal of ours is to provide you with all the information you need to participate in our auctions, both online and in person. We bring you a user-friendly platform where you can browse our catalogs, view photographs, and watch videos of the livestock, hay, and produce up for auction.
If you’d like to keep up with our varying sale dates and the items on the block in the next few months, we invite you to check back with this website for all the updated information. Please visit the contact page or contact us for any additional questions.
