Shady Brook Farm

After The Green Parrot, we headed over to Shady Brook Farm to catch the local flavor on a Friday night. Little Big Thing was the performing band that evening, and we caught the last half-hour or so of their set. I can't say I was impressed, but they weren't bad. There were many children running around, mostly near the elaborate play structure that was setup.

We got some of Uncle Dave's Ice Cream, which I highly recommend. Andrew had the mint chocolate chip and the billionaire chocolate (creamy chocolate), I had the Newman's Chocolate Dirt (creamy chocolate with crushed oreos or something similar), and Jonathan had an Orange Cream Milkshake (with extra cherries). All was fantastic, and the scoops are huge! Next time, however, we should go on a Thursday night, since they apparently have 94-cent ice cream cones!!

We also bought a bottle of wine that was made in Pennsylvania. We got the Raspberry Dessert Wine (bottle for $17), infused with chocolate. It was better at first than it became later... very strong on the raspberry, and a rough aftertaste. I didn't like the peach (we tried both first) at all, surprisingly.

Shady Brook Farm itself has many activities throughout the year. We drive by it every now and then (it's right on Township Line Road, which is one of the roads making up the intersection where our complex is), and often see tons of cars parked to see car shows. They also have pick-your-own fruits, a pumpkin patch, a holiday lights show, hayrides, a straw maze, and many other activities throughout the year. I think it's safe to say that we'll be back, and probably not before long.
