They are a custom bakery known for their famous country sour dough bread, jams, and kettle-made apple butter made daily. They also make a large selection of baked goods daily including cinnamon rolls, chess pies, coconut macaroon cakes, gourmet brownies, sweet breads, and cheesecake.

If you like ice cream, you will love their vintage ice cream counter offering a full variety of ice cream and soda bar.

The store is a gift shop with a variety of creative gift ideas.

Jennifer and Wayne the owners have made it a very warm and inviting place to visit. Jennifer was an interior designer before opening the mercantile and bakery. Her artistic ability beckons you from the outside yard displays and porch to the inside gift area.
We stopped on a Sunday afternoon about 5:20 PM. They were just about ready to close up and the last of the sweet sensations were being bought by some customers. We got some pictures just before the sweets disappeared. Jennifer and Wayne were a delight to talk with and made the stop worth it just to meet them.
We tried a slice of pumpkin bread, great taste! Keep up the good work!!
