Trip to Delicious Orchards in Colts Neck, NJ, April 12, 2018

On a beautiful spring day nineteen Somerset BNC members went to Delicious Orchards, a family-owned farm and country food market store-plus-bakery in Colts Neck, NJ. Today’s very large store and bakery grew from the farm’s original 1959 roadside apple stand.

Our behind-the-scenes tour started with us our donning our baker’s hats and entering the bakery and its maze of rooms. We saw pastries, tarts, doughnuts, challah, braided breads, pies, and many other yeast-dough bakery items being made. The bakery is much more hands-on than in a factory but workers are aided by large mixers, walls of ovens, and machines, such as the pie crust press and dough rollers. Our tour guide had a thorough knowledge of all the bakery processes and machines and knew every worker by name.

  

We ended up with a tour through the large store’s produce area where our guide again had great information about each product on the floor.

  

Members of our group enjoyed the tour heartily and found it educational as well. Afterwards we had a lunch at Huddy’s Restaurant across the street from Delicious Orchards.

 

 Cheery Event at Wine and Dreams

January is always a dreary month, and 2018 is no exception. But we always manage to inject
many enjoyable events into our yearly calendar. And January 23 was no exception as we had a
terrific time painting wine glasses and sipping refreshments at Wine and Dreams in Somerset.
Shown here are Judy Dorfman, Jeanne Tudor, Carolyn Metz, Janet Hirschfeld, Toby Marks, and
Nancy Clancy, along with their painted wine glasses.
