Three Reasons To Visit Our Deli, Bakery, Gourmet Shop!

#1 From soup to nuts, you're on the right track to "whet your appetite" and enjoy a relaxing atmosphere during your truly unique shopping experience at our store. At Ashcombe, we really are more than a garden center!
Beginning early in the morning, fresh pies are made from scratch in our farm kitchen. We offer popular fruit flavors, shoofly, oatmeal, custards, key lime and many more! If you are looking for something in particular, you are welcom
e to call ahead and place your order. For over 20 years, these pies have been something people make the trip to Ashcombe for. While you're here shopping, take a break in our two quaint dining areas and enjoy a slice of your favorite pie (it might be hard to choose!)

Every day at lunch we offer hot specials, two soups and assorted salad sandwiches, fresh salads and sides. With your selection, enjoy a cup of coffee, tea, soda or cappuccino. Top it off with a scoop of Hershey's ice cream
- available in about 20 flavors.

Our Gourmet Department has a selection of salsa's hard to find elsewhere. We also have a wonderful selectio
n of mustards, soup mixes, dressings, jams, nuts, pretzels and chips. Packaged coffees, teas and cocoas are some more of our specialty items - great for entertaining.
