Joe gave us his short tour and has a variety of nuts to try. We liked most but settled on the plain salted ones. Happy to support Joe and his many dogs who wander the grounds.

Local Mac Nut farm that provides many flavors. My son's favorite is coconut flavored Mac Nuts. Available at many of the local farmers markets. Joe is really friendly.
