The Mt. Hope Auction hosts a variety of different sales throughout the year. Its livestock, hay and produce sales take place on a weekly basis, selling a range of livestock, hay, straw, ear corn, and firewood. The auction also holds 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 are held three times a year.

The Auction stays busy with Special Dairy Sales, Back to Farm Stock Cow and Feeder Calf Sales, as well as it's Friesian//Friesian Cross Sale held on the 1st Saturday of May and the Memorial Trotting Sale held on the Friday of Memorial Day weekend. Also owned by the Mt Hope Auction is the the Farmers Produce Auction, 1 mile west of Mt Hope. Sales begin in February and run into November providing fresh produce, flowers, and fall decoration items straight from the farm.
