FRESH in season pies ready to go or frozen solid to take back home no matter how far away. Farm to Your table veggie and fruits, home made jams and jellies plus local honey too! Even a cute little country items gift shop with a few antiques thrown in not to disappoint. DID you say ICE CREAM .. well soft serve that include season blends of whatever is coming off the trees that week! plus the traditional hard scoop flavors and beyond..
