Plain and Fancy Farm

Plain and Fancy Farm offers a buffet served family style. Upon entering, you’ll be in their gift shop, where you can purchase a bonnet, apple butter, sweets, postcards, and other assorted souvenirs.

Some of the many dishes include: Baked Ham with Cider Sauce, Mashed Potatoes, Chicken Pot Pie with Homemade Noodles, Iced Raisin Bread, Corn, and Golden Fried Chicken.

Desserts: Shoo-Fly Pie (a gooey mixture of molasses, brown sugar, and spices) and Apple Dumpling with Vanilla Ice Cream. The pictures show the same Apple Dumpling, but I cracked the crust, so you could see the whole apple. Stay away from this… I didn’t think it was any good.  There was one treat that stood out though! Their Shoo-Fly Pie is so incredibly delicious! It was warm and gooey with a nice chewy consistency (much like a brownie). It’s even better with some vanilla ice cream =)

I was a little bit disappointed since I had heard so many wonderful things about Plain and Fancy. I was expecting the best tasting food, but I didn’t think it was anything special. It was good… just not extraordinary. Fried chicken is fried chicken.

I will say that their service is excellent. We had over 250 people in our party and most of them were 8th graders, so to be able to deal with all that noise, attitude, and behavior is pretty astounding!
