Great berries, fresh fruit ice cream and frozen yoghurts, awesome fresh muffins and great coffee. I always make a point of stopping by here if in the area - even if it means a little 30-60 minute detour. Worth it.

There is no picking of the fruits, they sell the produce and make ice cream and frozen yogurt. Which are very nice but we drove there to pick the fruits ourselves.
