Locals kind of place especially in the Fall during apple harvest (mid Oct.) Food is good, great place for breakfast. Good place for people with kids up to about age 8. Little animal farm zoo, train, playground. Hay bale maze. Decorated nice for Fall. Lots of pies; esp apple and cherry. Turn overs, big jugs of their apple juice. ... 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.

Unique Stopover
Cover's is a delightful bakery and deli. Lots to choose from for a light lunch or snack. A small train ride around the grounds is available. They are famous for their "mile high" pies - both fruit and meat. Also popular is their apple cider...More ... read more

Great Pastries
I stop in regularly. In early spring I stop and get fresh tomatoes and live plants for my garden. During the rest of the year I pick up their apple dumplings which are to die for.

So grateful we found you and your beautiful family apple farm late on a Saturday afternoon. We were thinking about getting a traditional apple pie...after one of the sweetest ladies offered us a "Buy one, get one free" end-of-day special," we also chose a triple berry pie. Scrumptious! What's better than pie for dessert??? Pie for br ... read more

I love this place, but the wait time to get your food has really gotten bad. The food is amazing, but you need to realize after you place your order at the counter it could take up to 45 to an hour and they are not even busy. It has happened the last 3 times we went. 😔 ... read more

Great place for a bite, lunch or pie to go. The Dutch Apple Pie is amazing. The ambience of the place is very relaxing and beckons one to savor their deliciousness outside within sight of the train and animals.

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.

Fun family place with great real homemade healthy delicious food😍 Barn yard zoo with train rides hosted by German Anabaptists, a unique outpost of true old fashioned values. Not a Disneyland but a simple honest family roadside attraction. A local favorite with drive thru service and picnic tables inside and out.

Covers is a great place to take the kiddos and have an adventure. The animals, the swing set, the pastries. All fun and all good. The prices are kinda high but you are paying for quality. I give a 4 instead of 5 only because the costs can be a little above the typical baked goods range.
