Regularly go to the Fruit Shack for their quality frozen meats and fresh butter tarts. Wonderful staff and bright, clean, inviting store. Tried their apples twice and found them lacking but everything else has been above par! A weekly shopping stop!

Been here about 6 times and it is a quaint little place with hormone free healthy meats (pricey, but hard to find around here), and fresh veggies. Amazing super sweet and gooey butter tarts. They are huge with large shells to hold all the goodies....More

They support not only their own farm but many other local businesses as well. Like all the other reviews have mentioned, the tarts are to die for! I love their kettle corn so much that I am unable to enjoy kettle corn from other places.

Sorry to say this...we so wanted to enjoy the kettle corn but it was truly awful. It may well have been the worst popcorn we have ever paid for.
