Give yourself time -- the gift shop is so fun to go through. There were 2 groups filling the cafe, so we didn't go. They have a Penny Smasher! Bathrooms are amazingly clean!

They take a picture at the end of the tour and it was a nice surprise to find out it was free too, for as many copies. Also, the 1825 Harrison covered bridge that people still drive over is not too far from here.

This was such a wonderful stop. Everyone was so nice, and we learned about the Bush's bean empire! The family recipe is well-guarded. We even got a free photo with Duke at the end.

Be sure to stop in the cafe for a free sample of the Beans of the Day and try the pinto bean pecan pie!
