Bergey's Breadbasket - Bread, Pies, Ice Cream, Milk,Flowers and More
2207 Mount Pleasant Rd, Chesapeake, VA
Bergey's Breadbasket- The store which sells Bread, Pies, Ice Cream, Milk, Flowers and More has been around longer than most people reading this blog. Titus Bergey founded the farm in 1931 and it has been owned by his children and grandchildren eve since. It used to be a working farm, but the City of Chesapeake made it impossible to continue running the business as a dairy farm circa 2007. I used to take my kids to feed the cows, turkeys, chickens, pigs and some times sheep. Now you find a beautiful store with produce brought from local farmers. The milk is from Yoder's, and it is as good as the old Bergey milk used to be.
The Bergey's Breadbasket- now sells Breads, pies, ice cream, milk, flowers, candy, honey and most of it locally grown.
Every time you visit the store there is a different flavor of ice cream. Around Christmas, egg-nog , and egg-nog ice cream are available. Halloween brings pumpkin ice cream, and the last time I visited (last week) cookies and cream was the flavor of the day.
A small menu with sandwiches and soups are served for lunch. The soup of the day is always good, and the chicken salad sandwich is my favorite. Make sure to try their smoke's barbecued ( done locally by Zook's Barbecue)
Customer service is excellent, and some days you get to see a female family member with their Mennonite wear working behind the counter. During Halloween season a favorite local event was to go to the farm and pick your own pumpkin. There were horse carriages that took 20 to 30 people at a time to the fields. Plans of bringing this event back is in the works at Bergey's Breadbasket - Bread, Pies, Ice Cream, Milk,Flowers and More will always be part of the menu at the Bergey's farm.
