Fur Peace Ranch is nestled in the rolling hills of Southeast Ohio. It is a 126-acre ranch that offers virtual workshops teaching those who have a passion for music and want to learn to play the guitar. They host live music events throughout the year but hurry to purchase your tickets because they sell out quickly.

In 1989 Jorma and Vanessa Kaukonen’s goal was to create a place where musicians could come together and surround themselves with music for several days and emerge with a new-found inspiration and they have definitely met their goal.

Visit Fur Peace Ranch, a place where you can nourish your soul while educating your mind and fingers.

Southern Ohio’s best dive bar with local brews, locally sources & prepared food, and never a minute without music!
