We Open Our Doors September 2nd through October 31st, 2023

Head on over; we are open Tuesday through Sunday!

As soon as you open your car door, you will be greeted with the aroma of apples and cinnamon coming from the bakery located inside our farm store. The best selection will always be found early in the day as our bakery staff prepares these homemade treats daily.

All of our bakery is made and baked by us, and we do run out of product, as we can only physically do so much! Call us 24 hours in advance to guarantee that we will have your order ready for you when you visit. 715-351-1207
