Yummy pretzels. If you have time purchase a pretzel. The pretzels will practically melt in your mouth!

The shop has a great variety and good prices on homemade soap. I always try to stock up whenever I visit. The baked goods are also delicious esp. the molasses cookies! There is... read more

Nice, but small area to move around inside. Many word working items-bird houses, stands, etc. homemade sewn items, and baked goods inside. If you want a delicious warm pretzel, must stand in line outside. Busy place as were there with 2busses...

This was off the main drag, so we thought it would be small.... We were wrong....it even had a parking lot. Their claim to fame is that there were two Amish girls making soft pretzels. We got one to share and didn't start eating it until we drove away.....we should have EACH gotten one! They were so delicious! We also... More

My husband and I were driving on back roads throughout Lancaster county looking for quaint, off-the-beaten-path places, and stumbled across this roadside stand. A sign outside says "Buses Welcome." That was an immediate turn-off. What turned us off even more than the tourist trap environment was the attitude of the owner. He was cold and indifferent. We have been to... More

This shop was a bit out of the way but well worth the drive. We purchased more items here then any of the other shops we visited. The pretzels were great.

Referred here by Amish buggy driver. Off the main roads, worth the drive. Truly Amish goods and employees, except for a few items made in China or elsewhere. Not sure why they'd offer them. But they do have authentic delicious fresh hot pretzels!

Years ago I was quite disappointed in this place. Well we visited again and it has really improved. The owner was very friendly. The swing set outside by the animals was a great kid spot. It is really in the heart of farmland and gives you the feeling of what serenity this land produces. Go and visit!

This is a must for anyone who is in the area, or even if your not! Everything is worth the trip, but the pretzels are worth the trip all by themselves. We bought many items from pies to pickles and everything was excellent! Hand made wood products are top quality and there are some very novel items. We will definitely... More
