In 2002, Carl and Shirley purchased the small bakery and pastie business and fulfilled the prophecy. Open year-round the Berry Patch Bakery, Gifts, & Restaurant became a full fledged breakfast and lunch restaurant. Shirley's gift store just south of the bakery was an expansion for the Berry Patch. The old fashioned bakery was a natural continuation of the original business. Space for the Paradise Room was stolen from the gift shop a few years into the business and the UP North Room was added in 2008. Shirley breathed a sigh of comfort when she shared that now, the entire business has cedar paneling. Her dream, their dream is complete.
