Formerly known as The Country Store. Come choose from a wide variety of freshly picked apples. Select your favorite butters and preserves to take home and enjoy. Check out our wide and unique selection of jellies, honey, soup mixes, dressings, coffees, dips and more. From salsa to BBQ sauce, it’s all here!


Coming and Going

Whether you’re just arriving or headed back home, stop by one of our fantastic places in our main building before you head back to your next activity!

Hay Cafe

Rain or shine, you can sit down and enjoy a delicious and unique meal. The Hay Cafe offers sandwiches, soups, chicken pot pie and more! Kid-friendly options, too. For dessert, check out our variety of ice cream flavors. Cider, slushies and soft drinks are also available.


Once the aromas catch your nose, you’re hooked! The Bakery offers a variety of yummy things to eat, including cider donuts, apple crisp and pie, turnovers, Deanna’s Dumplings, pumpkin pie, pumpkin rolls, ice cream, apple cider—both hot and cold—and apple cider slushies!

Coffee Shop

Stop by our Coffee Shop and enjoy espressos, lattes, mochas, Americanos and cappuccinos made from freshly ground beans. Beyond coffee, try a hot chocolate, chai, or traditional apple cider. Don't forget to grab a cider donut before taking in our beautiful Iowa farm (or an extra for the drive home).

Food at the Farmyard

If you’re coming to the Farmyard to enjoy our activities, we hope you’ll stop at one of our many food stands and enjoy a meal!

The Feed Bunk

Come hungry, because you definitely won’t leave that way! Our Feed Bunk is ready to serve you on the weekends with burgers, hotdogs, pulled-pork sandwiches and our fresh-cut fries. Oh, and don’t forget our famous applesauce!
