Summer sure has been busy, and Hot. The Berry season is very good this year with all the rain the upper midwest has been recieving. Blueberry's and Blackberries are very plentyful. Rasberries are just finishing up, the rest the birds can have, after all they don't have a job!
The Inn's has serveral kind's of jam's and our own Maple Syrup for you to take home to share with you families or friends or give as gifts. We also have Gift Certificates. Shop early, the Holiday's are just around the corner! Have a Safe Summer. Carol & Leslie
