Their gift shop has an extensive selection of gift and food items, frozen, fresh and canned. They have fresh apple cider and a cafe serving sandwiches and pie. They also have a little riding toy park. At Hallowe'en time, they have a building with Hallowe'en items. I'm not sure when they open for the year, but they remain open until December 23.
