This place just makes you happy. The factory was in full swing when we got there, plus the wonderfully friendly and knowledgeable woman in charge of the gift shop was setting out chocolatey treats in honor of Mothers' Day and insisted we partake.

The non-profit offers employment in a non-stressful setting to people who are developmentally disabled. There aren't many places in this country where the machinery is still run by huge belts. It's woefully under visited, but you won't regret stopping in. Go, and be a 10 year old again. Buy kazoos for everyone in your life and start a new musical tradition at your next family get together. Remember--you're helping an American-run company that's still located in America.
