A visitor writes on September 06, 2014: "The
blackberries that I got form the farm, worth $5, were a waste of
money. It had plenty of worms...oh god! thrown them all...
please never bring berries from this farm. Also, last time I
bought Nectarines from market, they were super sour. If you need
Nectarines, pick by yourself (they are good), but the one in the
market are not ripened.Peaches are good; apples are not so
sweet..(while some are super sour, taste and then pick). EGG
PLANTS ARE TOO GOOD. Please, never pick blackberries, they are
just so suspicious to eat...eaweeeee. I have been to this farm
twice,in future will go only for necters and peaches. good luck
for your next pick up."
Comments from a visitor on
September 19, 2009: "My fiancée and I love to pick your own
fruit. I was searching your website for a place that was close
to home and we found Lee Turkey Farm. It's a GREAT place. It has
a mom and pop feel. The staff is very friendly and are always
willing to help you. The fruit was delicious and very plentiful.
We went peach picking in September and there were so very many
trees that still had so much fruit on them. I enjoyed the low
prices on the pick your own. This is a GREAT find. People should
check this place out!!"
