Grandma Ruth's Country Store

A trip to Carter Mountain is not complete without a stop in our Country Store!  Grandma Ruth loves to find unique, local items for your shopping pleasure.  Our shelves are full of country favorites – find apple butter (our top-selling item!), jams and jellies, fruit syrups and pancake mixes, Pennsylvania Dutch candies, and flavored coffees, among many items.

Lots of folks love to do their holiday shopping with us – choose from local crafts, beautiful baskets, specialty foods, harvest decorations, Christmas ornaments, American-made toys, and more.   Don’t forget to pick up Carter Mountain t-shirts for the kids – a great remembrance of your trip!

Wish you had taken home more apple butter?  Love that jam and need more?  No problem, check out our online store and let us send it right to you!
