about Eckert's Country Store & Farms:
The U-Pick orchards - the largest pick-your-own operation in the country - combine the sights and smells of luscious fruits (pumpkins and Christmas trees too!) with children's activities and annual events and festivals. Hayrides and bonfires are family favorites in the fall.
When the family is tuckered out from picking fruit and shopping at the Country Store or Garden Center, the Country Restaurant and Old Fashioned Frozen Custard Shop offer respite in the way of down-home meals and creamy desserts.
