gotta have the chicken. I haven't been there since the kids were little. Do they still have the pancake breakfast? I was disappointed when they stopped making the cider on site with that old press

yup still do the breakfast and some family friends still do the apple butter stirring starting the day before. there's something about apple butter cooked over a real wood fire. Ohmigoshit's heaven on a spoon. Lawdy Lawdy my tongue is twitching already!

sorry to hear that BC! Prayers reaching out to you brother.

the applefest was great, as I have always remembered it. i ate way more than i should have (polished off a pork bbq sammich without the bun, a half an apple dumpling with a bite of ice cream, and a couple pierogies (LOL) and it was all just out of this world. my parents got the chicken dinners and they were just awesome...had a little bite of the leg meat. I did buy a jug of apple butter and this year they had sugar free...LOVING LIFE! they even had no sugar added apple pies. paid 4 bucks for a 20 minute hay ride and my kids enjoyed the heck out of it. I have a couple pics on my phone, not too many but will find one to post here.

Looks like a great event...HPA had a booth at the Apple Cider Fest at Prince Galletzin SP and the turnout was INCREDIBLE and there was NO RAIN. I loved talking hunting with all the folks there. met about 10-12HPAers and hopefully a couple hundred more newbies.

Hey to the lady that is here EVERYDAY...
, don't be afraid to speak up, the writing is as fun as the reading.I loved the energy you had for this site..please share that.

Does anyone have contact info for this, maybe we can man a booth at this festival next year?? Thanks in advance. PM is fine.
