Frazeysburg, Ohio's really big apple basket: How do like them apples?
Frazeysburg, Ohio is home to what all seekers of eccentric roadside attractions search for: the world's biggest something-or-other. In this case it's the world's biggest basket of apples, at the Longaberger Homestead, a retail outlet and tourist destination of the Longaberger Basket Company. If you've been following this blog, you'll recall their spectacular 7-story building in the shape of a giant picnic basket that serves as their corporate headquarters down the road in Newark, Ohio. Obviously, this is a company that likes really big things and they're tops in my book. They certainly know how to reach their core audience. Here's their website: http://www.longaberger.com/homestead.aspx
