Huge collection of Farm implements

This family business is a great place to buy your apples and eat pies! Their location is near their large picnic area, so you can get lunch at Larsen's and kick back in the little park.

Liked the way this was set up...you could taste all the apples in the main barn and ask any questions...if you wanted to get bakery items, it had a separate building...and then for fun they has a history museum that was very interesting
