going. Usually a nice farm. However, we emailed asking about Friday and they
gave NO indication that the crop was not plentiful and they might close. Nor
did they tell us to call back later that week to double check. ASSURED us
they'd be open daily 8 to 8. Then when we arrived Friday, after an hour
drive, they were closed. We called, and they said they weren't opening that
day - not enough fruit - would open the next day at 8 am (it was 5 pm).
Didn't care that we had been told by them that they'd be open or that we'd
driven an hour to get there. We were supposed to drive an hour home and then
come back 14 hours later. Went to another farm this year."
