Horse Whisperer

We love your horses. It’s the only opportunity my 2-year-old has had to be around horses, and she is full blown obsessed now. Thank you for everything you guys do!


Tree Stump

I have been to Cracker Box Palace several times. I love your trails, through woods, over creeks, and along orchards. Occasionally I could see Lake Ontario.


Girl in Chicken Farm

I visited with my granddaughter and we fed the animals; I loved the gentle.
