Shopping at a farm and garden supply

How often do you go to farm and garden supply to shop and have fun?  Probably not very often.  Well, there is a place in Grifton, NC called Yoder's, owned and operated by the Mennonites.  A restaurant and bakery on one side and the farm and garden supply on the other side.  I think the reason I like this place so much is because it reminds me a little bit of home back in Pennsylvania amongst the Amish and Mennonites.     




Nothing fancy about it, just everything from tea cups to lawn mowers...  



and anything you can think of for the garden.  I'm looking forward to returning in the spring to check out all the plants and vegetables.  











Their bird aisle was stocked to the hilt with all kinds of bird supplies, beautiful bird houses and any kind of birdseed you could think of.  



Not to mention hummingbird feeders in beautiful colored glass.  





And the restaurant served daily specials, fantastic pies (everything made from scratch),  



and the best coffee.  



So you can see why I love coming here.  A little bit of home away from home.  And look at the cute bird house I bought for the garage.

Last year when we visited Ohio we saw quite a few different businesses that had a Yoder name on them. This place looks like lots of fun! Mimi

Seems like a great place and seems like you had fun.;) I too simply enjoy spending a day at any center selling plants, flowers and gardening stuff.;) My mom and me always spend hours at one when they came and visited me.;)
Have a lovely weekend,

I love all of the random things you can find in garden stores. The other day my wife came back with all sorts of things from the crystal lake garden supply store. Now we just have to build a garden.
