"Nice orchard farm to stop in and grab all kinds of delectibles.
Of course anything Apple related that you could want, they have.
Large mixture of arts and crafts stuffs as well.
The bakery was really good, very busy but they had the line moving pretty good.
Fresh baked items all morning long, everything we had from the donuts, to the cinnamon rolls was excellent!"
