Peachey’s Country Store has a large selection of baked items, including pies, cookies, dessert bars, and homemade chocolate items.
The women running the place were especially friendly and helped me head in the right direction to my next stop, as this was the first place I visited.
Many of the farm houses in Somerset County have a weathered appearance.
The one home I visited inside also appeared rather plain by its interior.
Tools in the shop are powered by a line shaft arrangement (see here for photos of another such setup driven by a diesel engine).
There were only a few quilts available when I stopped in, and they didn’t seem like traditional Amish quilts.
I didn’t see it advertised on the road, but there was a sign for the greenhouse at the same location.
The lady at Hidden Valley helped me find the second, Valley Brook Dry Goods.
A rather old Amish man was finishing chairs with the help of an Amish woman when I arrived to ask directions. He asked if I was interested, but I told him I am covered on hickory rockers for now.
Another chair maker I visited not too far away explained the technology used here.
I paid a visit to Somerset County, Pennsylvania on my “way home” from last week’s stay in Lancaster County.
