Try home-brewed root beer or sample freshly made apple butter.  If you like seeing old-time crafts, plan on spending the whole day.  (Joining Bear Creek: Rob & Gary)  Update 9/24/2015: I'm afraid Rob will not be able to make it to this performance.  Amy, Neal, and I will carry on, though!  We miss you, Rob! –Gary P.
