At the farm stand, you'll find what the farm is most known for—apples! Lots and lots of apples, including every type of apple product you can imagine. Try out their apple juice, made with a blend of Philo Gold and tart green apples. Definitely don't leave without a bottle of their famous farmhouse cider which is created with no additives of any kind. They also sell apple balsamic vinegar, apple cider vinegar, and apple cider syrup.
However, there's simply no resisting their homemade jam and jelly. It's evident that this farm takes making jam seriously. Created with their own organically grown fruit (hand cut and cooked in small batches), these jams are full of intense flavor. Flavors include plum, raspberry, blackberry, pomegranate, and marmalade.
This place is so charming that you might find it hard to leave. The good news is that you don't have to! The farm is home to a handful of beautiful guest cottages that are available to rent.
