Lucky Leaf Orchard trip Part 1 #LuckyLeafLuckyMe

I have been working with Lucky Leaf for nearly a year now, as an ambassador (where has the time gone?) I love the pie filling, and I was very fortunate to get to travel with some fellow bloggers to Peach Glen PA to visit the Lucky Leaf factory and orchards. As you all know I live in Philadelphia so I was able to drive where we were staying Gettysburg was only a 2.5 hour drive away. Since I lived so close my husband and I drove, and got in early to enjoy a day in Gettysburg. Here are a few of the sights we saw.
A wonderful diorama of the battle, this is the largest war diorama in the US.

Here is our lovely hotel, The Hotel Gettysburg  established in 1787. The hotel was very nice and we loved our room and our view.

Our view of downtown Gettysburg...

After setting in the bloggers were invited to a meet and greet, where we met the other bloggers and members of the Knouse team as well as the Brunner team, The Knouse folks couldn’t have been nicer, Bob Fisher, VP of Marketing, Laura Hauser, Marketing Manager, Pam Hinkle, Marketing Manager. They were all very down to earth and just genuinely sweet. We received, a cute note book, apron and cherry cookie when we arrived.

We were treated to a lesson from a food stylist Cherise who works with Lucky Leaf, she did wonders with food. If you ever wondered how to make food pretty, well she knew. She had some tips for us. I was able to meet the other bloggers who were invited to the trip including:

Alicia – The Mama Report,  Paula – Bell’Alimento ,Dawn – Not Just A Mommy ,Randi – A Lucky Ladybug Charley – Cooke’s Frontier Susan W – DoughMessTic 

All of the bloggers got to try to food style on our own. Here is my stylized parfait… Looks good huh. I cleaned it up with a qtip  (who could have thought a qtip could make your food nicer looking) a couple swipes and voila! A professional looking shot. I learned a lot, and I will be using what I learned in my future posts that’s for sure…..

So after a long day we bid each other goodbye…. Because we were off to the orchards located in Peach Glen PA early the next day. I know you are looking forward to the pictures, here a little preview….
