"We absolutely love this place!! Anytime we are on the east coast we have to go out of our way to stop by the Orchard!! The fried pies, and oven pies are Amazing!!! We also like the jellies and butters. The peaches are so good!! As soon as you step out of your car you can smell the pies being made! 10/10 recommend stopping by if you are in the area."
