Join us for our Pancake Breakfast and Potato Harvest.   You will love starting the day with pancakes hot off the griddle! Pile them high on your plate and then top it off with our delicious fruit syrups.  Enjoy orange drink and coffee included in the All You Can Eat Pancake Breakfast served until 11:30am and included with 

admission. Be sure to arrive by 11am to have time to eat your fill!  Our first 100 visitors will receive a complimentary bag from Virginia Grown to carry their spuds.

Then jump on a wagon ride and hunt for potato treasure in our u-pick field.  Did you know that most potatoes in stores are LAST year’s harvest?  You will be amazed by the flavor and texture of fresh potatoes! Weather permitting; we will even “rip” some rows with the tractor to make the hunting easier! Kids love to see the tractor working the field.  After you dig your potatoes, join us in the Roosteraunt Concession Stand for lunch featuring pea and potato pot pie &  new spiral potatoes on a stick!  A fun twist on the french fry.
