Roll Thanksgiving into a conveniently portable sphere with turkey croquettes, three pan-fried cakes served over local apple-cranberry compote ($18.99).

In production since 1988, Mackintosh Fruit Farm introduces city slickers to country life with seasonal crops available for handpicking and a meandering corn maze. Harvesting hands can make their way through rows of ginger gold, gala, golden delicious, york, and fuji apples, filling containers with up to eight pounds of potential pie-fillers or impressing dates by playing catch with squirrels. Couples may alternatively opt to adopt a newborn pumpkin from Mackintosh's patch to serve as protective porch guardians during late-October monster invasions, then find their way through a maze of corn, where seven game and activity stations entertain along the way. The corn maze takes most people an hour to navigate, though delays can result from sightings of a translucent James Earl Jones.
The Coach and Horses Tea Room is to the restaurant, as a bed and breakfast is to the hotel. They present over 52 high quality teas from around the globe and dishes that are prepared by hand freshly on a daily basis. The tea room's decor provides an authentic colonial experience, with ornate rugs, patterned china, and hand-stenciled walls. Its colonial-style exterior has barely changed from its original construction in the 1790s. The original log walls and plank flooring have stood the test of time, contributing to the building's placement on the National Registry of Historic Places by the US Department of the Interior.
