Comments from a visitor on
April 18, 2011: "While they had REALLY good apples, and the
gentleman who was riding around in his tractor was very helpful
in locating the best apples, the lady who had rung us up for the
160 lbs. of apples we picked and half gallon honey we bought
couldnOpen: 't have been more rude to us. Considering we were
picking apples with 5 elderly men and women and 4 kids, we were
moving as fast as we could go. I have no idea if this woman owns
the farm, but we will try it one more time and give them the
benefit of the doubt. Maybe she was having a bad day? No matter.
The apples are very good and we never mind blemishes as long as
they are on a non-sprayed apple and kissed by genuine sunshine!
The honey was good. Pure because there was a honeybee floating
in the top! Love it! Wish they would have allowed me to bottle
my own though as the opening of their 1/2 gal. jar is way too
small. All in all, a fun trip for the kids and visiting
