My daughter loves the fresh pressed cider and they always have samples of something to give away. I go several times every summer - it' s our tradition.
Farm-fresh produce and other treats to satisfy your culinary cravings..

Many specialty items can be found here as well such as fresh pheasant, wild boar, fingerling potatoes and fiddlehead ferns.
