Sugar Shack

On the road again and enjoying the scenery. I don't know if I told you or not, but we routed out trip so we would travel the backroads and not the interstates. This way we were able to see the countryside and go through little towns. We love to travel like this. It does take a little longer but it's worth it.
 Chloe Dawn was looking for a rest stop! :)
 A little snap of Kiki in the background in Erie, Pennsylvania.
Then we came upon fields and fields of vinyards and thought we'd stop and buy a bottle of wine for our daughter and son in law.
We pulled into the driveway of one vineyard that had a little store - The Sugar Shack and was located in Westfield, New York.
 Well, to our surprise they weren't growing grapes for wine but grapes for Welch's goodies.
The owner's were just delightful and we got to participate in a 'tasting' of every kind of fruit syrup you could imagine on a tiny spoonful of ice cream! Yummy! They grew all of the fruit themself and had the largest selection of homemade fruit syrups, jams, and butters you have ever seen. Then there were plenty of precious homemade things to buy. We learned this area grew and supplied concord grapes for the Welch food company! I love grapes and I love grape juice! Grape jam... :)

Well, hop back into Kiki and we'll travel on down the road.

Happy trails,
Shelia ;)


  1. Taking the back roads is how you really see things for sure! Love that you found the grape products and not wine! Fun trip for sure!

  2. Glad you got a taste of Welch country.......further north is Mott's apple country!!!


I'm so happy you stopped by and would love for you to comment so I'll know you've been to see me. I'll do my very best to respond to your comments too.
