Shop and Bakery

Save plenty of time during your visit to mosey through the shop and take in the sights, smells and tastes of the country – it’s a MUST SEE!

Browse unique items for your home or sample some of the hundreds of specialty foods we carry from the Sample Kitchen located right in the store.

Follow your nose to the Orchard Bakery to pick up some of our famous apple cider doughnuts, home-baked pies and cream and butter fudge. Watch us hand-spin a caramel apple just for you. And for a true taste of fall grab a gallon of our freshly-pressed pasteurized apple cider.

If you’re not sure which variety of apple to buy (we grow over 20) the staff at the Apple Bar can offer samples and make suggestions to help you purchase the best variety for your taste and use.
