Shoofly pie and whoopie pies. 2 volunteers will receive hands-on experience and a deluxe than you gift. Each group member will receive complimentary whoopie pies to cap off the demonstration.

Make Your Own Shoofly Pie

Start with a 9” pie shell, fill it with the ingredients to make Hershey Farm’s delicious shoofly pie, and then give the pie to our bakery staff. While you enjoy shopping in our large gift shop and have a delicious PA Dutch lunch or dinner, our bakery staff will bake, cool and package the pies. When finished with shopping and dining, everyone will receive their pies ready to take home and be enjoyed.

Whoopie Pie Checkers

Why not try a new twist on an old game? Your group may play checkers Lancaster County style. To make it a little more interesting, the checkers for this fame will not be made of plastic or wood. The checkers will be your very own mini chocolate and mini red velvet whoopie pies. The game of checkers will be played just like the normal game with two exceptions. When a checker is jumped, you may eat the jumped checker if you like. Also, to king a checker, anther whoopie pie shell will be added to the checker. At the end of the game, everyone in your group will receive a medium chocolate or red velvet whoopie pie to take home. Start practicing and come enjoy checkers Lancaster County style!

Gingerbread Decorating Contest

You have our permission to act like a kid again. We’re giving everyone in your group a gingerbread man, unlimited icing, and items you may have never thought could be used for decorations. Decorate like you were 10 years old, but remember every gingerbread man will be judged by the head chef at Hershey Farm. The most creatively decorated man will receive a special prize to take home and everyone gets to take home the gingerbread man that they made.
