Good Eats ~ Country Style

A warm spring day in Niagara. A healthy appetite. Yearning for a bit of adventure. Whadd’ ya got? Our Saturday trip to the country! So if you like farm-sourced food, delicious house-made baked goods, a drive in the country, and a few good snaps, you’re in for a treat.

First, hats off to a little place in Ransomville, called “Knead the Dough”.https://www.facebook.com/Knead-the-Dough-412887704147/?fref=ts  It’s an unassuming place, on the main drag, with a lot full of cars.

There’s nothing too surprising for a country restaurant, on the outside…

But on the inside…

And the food was perhaps as surprising.

They make their baked goods including the croissant for this plate.

The home fries weren’t greasy. The burrito filled with lovelies. Different taste combinations, friendly staff. We give it 4 chicks! 

Then it was off to the Farm! There were…

Isn’t this farm just ducky?? (HAD to do it)…

Oh, and did we mention the farm was at a market? Or rather, the market is at a farm?

Dispenza’s is a rather unique, family owned market that sells meat and dairy products, as close to nature as they are practically able to do. If you are interested in such things, it would be a good idea to visit them. https://www.facebook.com/DispenzasMeatMarket/?fref=ts
They have farm fresh milk and eggs and other locally sourced food items, along with some standard, popular Western New York fare. We chicks certainly enjoyed the items we purchased! Best milk we ever had…

Then, we made a quick stop over, Youngstown way to Sanger Farms for some fresh baked goods, like cherry pie and banana pineapple bread. The aroma of fresh baking hit us right in the nose,when we walked in the door. https://www.facebook.com/sangerfarms/?fref=ts

There’s no place like the country for good eats! Niagara County is just really good at it…

    1. It was a fun trip. More fun than we’d imagined it would be. We pulled up in front of the market to have a fowl greeting. 😉 The owner later said she was concerned that the Tom would ‘attack’ us. Apparently he likes to strut his stuff and bump people. We were just too naive, city folk we be. Too busy saying “what a pretty boy”… That would have been a surprise.
      Thanks for the like and follow.
