Gettysburg's Original Picnic Service

Gettysburg.   Pennsylvania’s Perfect Place for a Picnic.

Peace.  Tranquility.  Small Town.  Good People. 

                     When was the last time you went on a picnic?  

The Wells Family Baking Company offers a complete picnic service that offers all of the best of local Adams County’s foods.   Our picnic meals feature gourmet hand made sandwiches, freshly prepared salads and baked goods and local fresh fruit. Our breads are baked fresh daily and our foods feature the freshest produce, eggs, cheeses and meats from our local surrounding farms.    Truly a taste of Adams County!

​Our service also features a custom local map highlighting locations you can choose for the perfect picnic.    We invite you to take your basket to the battlefield, the Hauser Estate Vineyards, the Eisenhower Farm, our local Adams County orchards, or several in-town picnic locations.  Enjoy your meal on the beautiful rolling meadows and vibrant landscapes that only America's favorite small town can offer.   

Would you like to enjoy wine with your meal?   We partner with Hauser Estate Winery for the best in fine food and wine.    Visit either of the Hauser Estate Winery locations for complimentary wine tastings where you can select a wine to compliment your palette and meal.   To complete your picnic,  Hauser Estate will provide you with two complimentary monogrammed wine glasses and a special promotional discount on your wine selection.   

Here's how the service works......Select any two gourmet sandwiches from the menu posted below.   Wells will prepare your sandwiches, along with a freshly made salad, fruit and dessert (and other extras depending on your basket of choice).  We will present your food in a hand made picnic basket, along with a tablecloth and all of the necessary cutlery and a map of picnic locations .    You relax and enjoy a perfect picnic in Adams County!
