|Homemade root beer and short cake|
On my way home from Roots Farmers Market with my watermelons, bananas, cantaloupes and home grown strawberries I passed my favorite Amish farm stand. A huge sign proclaimed that Saturday they would be making homemade ice cream. If you have never had freshly churned homemade ice cream you are missing something amazing. Vanilla served with freshly picked fruit or any variety of flavors, homemade ice cream was a staple in the summer at home growing up. Neighbors would gather and all bringing something to go along with the ice cream. We would enjoy a warm evening watching fireflies and savoring the creamy treat. Neighbor John Landis even hooked the churn up to a tractor motor one summer so we could all sit and watch it churn… but there is still something nostalgic about hand turning a batch.

Other fun events:
Waltz Vineyard wine tastings are a must for any wine lover out there. Just 15 short minutes from the inn this beautiful tasting room is the perfect place to enjoy the amazing wines that Waltzes produces right here on Lancaster County farmland. They have truly earned the many medals they display.
Just around the corner is the Wolf Sanctuary of PA. Once a month they hold an evening event called the Full Moon Tour. Our guests just love this event, many returning several times to it visit again. The next full moon tour is the weekend of June 16.
This year we will again have tickets available for the Nissley Vineyard Lawn Concerts. We are happy to provide chairs and a picnic with 24-48 hours notice. This is such a fun night under the stars dancing.
Hoping to see in Lititz soon
