I see there is a thread on rotisserie chicken, but how about the fried stuff. I live in Monmouth County, but would travel for something good!

          Forgot to post
          They had fried chicken at the Dutch PA Farmers Market too!
          (Did not taste it)

          Not sure if they are truly Amish - Since when do they take Debit and Credit! LOL
