Mel’s Buggy Rides


Mel is a Berlin local who has been giving buggy rides since 2017. His horses Ben and Mac are friendly and always appreciate a friendly pat!

Come to The Oak Barrel Company in Berlin and sit on the buggy ride bench to wait for your turn! Or call Mel in advance to schedule a 15-30 minute ride or a 1-2 hour tour through the country. Rides are given year-round, though they depend on the weather.

Be sure to ask Mel about his horseshoe souvenirs and home decorations! He's a farrier, and the shoes he uses come from local horses.

    Really enjoyed this buggy ride. The driver was friendly and informative as he gave us small tour of Berlin. Kind of a hidden gem tucked away off the main road. Worth finding and experiencing.
