I really enjoyed the Heirloom tomatoes that I have heard so much about.
Now over to Stoney Creek Orchards... this is really a fully operational orchard that gives visitors access to the fields to get a true pick your own experience. I believe they charge you by the amount of apples you can fit into a bag they provide at the point of boarding a hay wagon pulled by tractor out to the fields. So... you get the experience of the hay ride and apple picking all wrapped up in one neat package. Funny thing... when you arrive at the drop point and disembark from the wagon... you don't quite know which way to turn first. There are apples literally falling off the trees and the kids can hardly hold back the initial excitement. It's like a rush to get there before they're all gone... but that is unlikely since there are so many of them AND trees planted according to variety. The biggest thrill for the kids is knowing that there are tall ladders available... because every kid must know that the best apples are at the top of the tree. Right? My group surly knew this bit of information because we could not keep them off the ladders!
Last thing on this... rumor has it that Kid Rock lived somewhere very close to here and I have a reliable source that can confirm that. Let's just say my wife picked up Kid Rock's undies... when he was just a little stone growing up in Romeo. Mrs. Richie was my wife's tennis instructor and the girls did some house keeping for the family. Little Bobbie... Hell on Wheels... then and now. Whowooddaknown?
