Interesting that Homestead Farm shoves negative posts off to the right edge of this page and on the main part of the page only posts happy-looking people and information about products they want people to buy.
After leaving numerous requests with their employees for the owner to call and receiving not a single call over several days, I need to report that fact. I also need to report that I have reason to believe that, despite what one of their employees said ahead of time, they use strong pesticides on the fruit trees. Also, their signs were totally misleading and ultimately led to our having to pay more than $30 for unripe, unusable fruit we had no choice but to throw out. And the woman who waited on us was downright rude and insulting. We were not the only customers that day who thought so. As we left, we overheard someone in the parking lot talking about the same kinds of problems.
Reposting our awful experience at Homestead Farm, since I posted it here the other day but do not see it here now. As we entered Homestead Farm, big signs said one could pick blackberries and peaches that day. When we purchased the containers at the farm, the saleswoman gave no warnings of anything. I asked her if they use pesticides, and she said, "Only when we plant but not after things start to grow." The blackberry picking was OK. Then we walked the long distance toward the peaches, but there were no signs pointing to peach trees, just to nectarines. At the end of the long walk, two large signs said only that these two rows had yellow nectarines at the end nearest there and then white ones farther down the two rows. We found only one nectarine that was not rotten or worm-eaten, so we continued down that row. We saw a tree full of fruit and started to pick lots of it. They looked like peaches, but I am no expert and thought some nectarines must look more like peaches than like plums, though those I had seen before were the opposite. My eyes started burning fiercely, in a way I have never experienced before. We carried the heavy box of fruit up to where one pays. The sign said you pay for whatever you pick. She said, "Oh! You picked peaches! They're not ripe." She said further that if we saved them, they would get soft but not sweet." She asked why we picked peaches, and I explained the above. She said condescendingly, "They're fuzzy. That means they are peaches." I said that "peaches" was nowhere indicated on the signs and told her what they said that were misleading. She refused to do anything and charged us more than $30. I asked to speak with the owner. She said the owner was not there. I asked her to call the owner, and she refused. Next day, I called the number on the receipt, was told the owner was not there, asked that the owner call me, and I left my number. The owner has never called me, not in response to the message that day or the messages I left two more days. I wanted to ask for a refund for the peaches, which of course were not usable, and to say that the fierce burning in my eyes had subsided as we walked away from the peach trees, so I can only assume that some really awful chemical is in fact sprayed on them.
In my earlier post, I neglected to add that other customers we happened to speak with on the way out reported having the same problems and lack of good-business response that we had.
Successful blackberry picking day, evidence: shirt.
Beautiful Farm!
