We loved the apple cider doughnuts! So delicious! And they had these tiny, adorable gingerbread mug buddies to perch on your coffee cup. Tasty! It is a beautiful farm up on a hill.

We come here a lot. We get our apples and all of our fall treats here. It's a great family run business. Gorgeous scenery all around, it's a great way to spend the day with the family or with friends.
