There is no comparison locally when it comes to their baked goods. I cannot overstate that fact. There's a fun train ride and cute playground. Overall a sweet little spot to take your family and good place to create memories with your kiddos. Took away one star because although the mini-"zoo" (for lack of a better word?) is a neat id ... read more

Took the kids to covers for a treat based on the yelp reviews and was so pleasantly surprised to find a working scaled model train we could ride! This place is  such a hidden gem. I think it may be a seasonal thing so call ahead!

The food is amazing, although takes quite a bit of time to be prepared. The delicious and freshness makes up for that, but be prepared to spend some time here. It's prefect for kids with their petting zoo and train ride. Tuesday is my favorite because of their creamy chicken and rice soup. Their fresh baked bread is very tasty!

This is a great place to stop with the family and grab a slice or whole apple pie to take home for later. They have so many baked goodies! However, their Mile-High Apple pie contains 3lbs of apples! In addition to their baked goods, they have picnic grounds and a farm/play area that is free for the kids to explore. There are bunnies, ... read more

We were visiting Family in Sonora over the weekend and we wanted to bring a little something with us.

I come here for their fabulous Dutch Apple Pies. Of course, there are other things to like but the pies are worth the drive from anywhere. Remember, this is a very popular place during the holidays and they sell thousands of pies, so you may want to show up early and grab one for the freezer. This place has been here forever and keep ... read more

The food is amazing, the cider cannot be beat. And I love the old feel to the place, almost Amish (the owners and staff are Old Brethren, very similar to the Amish). You can even watch them working in the kitchens. Handmade crafts, books, a petting zoo, and even a scale train ride.

Cute little place to take kids and grandkids. They have a train ride and farm animals. We didn't try their lunch but got some goodies. Carrot cake was the best we have ever had. Iced lemon cookies were really good as well. Only thing I can suggest is their sign on the highway is a little small.
