McClure's Apple Farm

Highway U.S. 31 is a busy thoroughfare thru Indiana stretching from South Bend to Indianapolis. At just about the halfway point, in Peru, is a quaint little apple orchard called McClure’s.

Apple Dumplin Inn

Chad’s Mom and I stopped in for lunch at the restaurant, which is called The Apple Dumplin’ Inn. It’s a very small restaurant with a very small menu. However, everything is made fresh and to order.

Egg Salad Apple Dumplin' Inn

I ordered the egg salad croissant with a side of coleslaw and homemade applesauce. It was rather delicious.

The homemade applesauce tasted like it was freshly made- not at all like that jar stuff.

McClure's Chicken Salad Croissant McClures Apple Dumplin Inn

Chad’s Mom ordered the chicken salad croissant with red grapes. Though I don’t eat chicken, she really enjoyed it.

After lunch we strolled through the apple barn with its abundance of apples as well as a country gift shop.

Jams Jellies McClures

There was also a selection of homemade jellies and butters including my most favorite apple butter.

McClures Apple Barn

I actually really loved McClure’s. We didn’t do a tour, go through the orchard or even sip on spiced apple cider, however, lunch was good and the store was fun. 5 out of 5 sprouts.

What a great thing to do in the Fall. I love the four-legged employee as well :-) What could be better?
