Hertzog Homestead in Ephrata has enjoyed much success in the past 14 years including the Bicentennial Farm and Home Award and features in local and regional business publications. After renovations were complete in the historic bank barn, circa 1740s, Hertzog Homestead opened its doors as a premiere event venue in Lancaster County.

Kate will continue in strategic planning of the events venue and marketing additional opportunities for those looking to host events such as weddings, corporate gatherings, church and nonprofit events and smaller more intimate parties.
