Barn Loft

Originally, The Barn Loft was a storage area for tractors and straw. In 2000, the original barn floor and granary was converted into 3000 square feet of additional space. For 28 years, that space was dedicated solely to our “Apple Core Gift Shop.” Over the years, the gift shop industry has changed, in 2015, we made some changes in the Barn Loft.

Gift Shop

We continue to offer the beautiful, current trends in the home décor, gift giving and children’s gift selection. Our Melissa and Doug children’s loft offers a wide selection of children’s educational toys, books, videos, plush toys and gifts. Our home décor includes gifts made in the USA, unique pictures, wall décor, and selective gifts.

Wine Tasting Room

Freas Farm Winery, from Berwick, Pennsylvania opened a wine tasting room in 2015. Their PA Preferred table wines can be sampled on Fridays and Saturdays. Each of their wines has a unique meaning and story. The Freas farm winery states, “We believe to make great wine we must take an equal responsibility for the lands we steward, as well as the community in which we reside. We feel strongly that producing wine and raising a glass is a cultural ritual that fosters friendship, joins the arts, brings families together and unites communities.” We are pleased to have them at Rohrbach’s Farm Market.

Barn Loft: Semi-private rentals and educational space

We have had the privilege to become more involved in providing farm based education to farming professionals, school aged children and our local community. This area provides a dedicated, semi-private setting for training, meetings, small parties and our pottery and paint classes. This space is available for private reservations. Call today and ask for someone in gift shop to schedule your event or to come in and see the space!
