Food
“Just across the street for the very best homemade apple cider and homemade Apple Butter. The Millers are a quiet humble family who live in a quaint setting...its like stepping back in time. You won't find better cider anywhere. When you leave Mayberry on 8, take a left and look for the apple sign on the right. The driveway will take you past a red train caboose, across the millrace....and there in the barn on the right is the best apple cider in the world. Tell the Millers the King family sent you!”

Point of Interest
“Ever wonder how they make a recreational vehicle, or as locals call them...an RV? Stop in at the Jayco Visitors Center and learn how the Bontrager family transformed the camping world with simple innovations by the patriarch of the family, Lloyd Bontrager. You can take a tour of the facilities and watch as locals build an RV from frame to finished product. Allow a minimum of 4 hours for this tour. Five minute drive to visitors center located in Middlebury”
