“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014 via mobile

I'm so glad we found this little store. It's a very nice place with lots of homemade goodies and unique gifts. The doughnuts are to die for. It's off the beaten path but so worth the drive, which by the way is gorgeous. Will definately go back again and again.

“Be sure to stop by”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

Shiloh General Store is a wonderful gem located near several of the Swan Creek Wine Trail wineries. Be sure to stop here for delicious baked bread, donuts (all made in house but only available early), canned goodies, and more.

“Lots of Great Goodies”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

A pearl in the field, this store is like no other. Fresh spices, pickles, jams, baking products and fresh baked donuts on Saturday. No bar codes, people were very friendly and polite. If you are looking for a rare find for someone who likes to eat, this is the place that you can get unique gifts.

“Unique!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014 via mobile

We drive 70 miles round trip to buy deli meats, canned vegetables, preserves, and specialty foods we can't find anywhere else. The fried apple pies are delicious. So glad we found this place years ago.

“Off the Beaten Path but Worth the Effort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

We are blessed to live very near Shiloh General Store, and are able to visit often. This is an Amish store and sometimes the hours can be a bit odd (different holidays cause unexpected closures) but I would recommend a trip if ever in the Iredell/Wilkes/Yadkin County area. The folks that run the store are incredibly nice. The breads that they bake are amazing, and going at lunch time means getting a wonderful sandwich made. My favorite things there are the sweet baked goods. Fried pies to die for, pecan and german chocolate tarts (those are my favorite flavors, but they have many others), whoopie pies, cakes and pies. Oh my, it's a sweet treat paradise! And all homemade! Who could ask for better? They also carry a variety of bulk items, mixes for dips, soups, breads, etc. It's a small store and can get crowded at times, but we love it! And the rockers on the porch are a wonderful spot to while away some time with a treat or some ice cream on a pretty day.
