Lovely place, excellent service, but prices are outrageous. A fantastic spectacle is created and it is a great place to stop and let the kids run if they need a stretch.
Well, as your driving down highway 1 in BC this place is hard to miss. It has a quirky collection of dinosaur and other models in the gardens as your enter and this and other decor might be considered... read more »
This place is great! The people working there are fantastic, and everything is delicious. We only wish we could have bought more, but it's a little pricey. The quality is high, though, so we knew it would be a little on the expensive side. The only thing we didn't like is that the final total does not come up on the debit machine, so you really don't know your total unless they tell you. The whole place is something to see, too. Great little roadside attraction for kids and adults, we'd go back in a second!
This place doesn't even deserve one star, I wish I could give it zero stars. I highly recommend everyone avoids it. This place is an absolute tourist trap and I knew that before going in. Nothing has a price on it in the shop leaving you in shock at the till. Trust me, everything is grossly overpriced! We stopped in here after an afternoon of floating the Shuswap River, a little tipsy and in search of some ice cream the Scam Barn lured us in. The trap was set. Once inside their shop I was tempted by an elderly lady giving away samples of some Mennonite Sausage, it was tasty and I was going to a BBQ the next day so I picked up a pack of 4 and went to the counter to order my Ice Cream, $4 for a regular cone & $5 for a waffle cone. After waiting in line the lady at the till rang me up....$31...$26 for 4 sausages! Well I contemplated...the samples were tasty and their large sausages so whatever, they got me. I paid and the lady returned with my cone..."We don't have waffle cones but I put in a little extra for you"....they got me again, she hadn't put any extra in after comparing cones with my two friends. So I am left fuming the rest of the drive back but the real kicker was the next day when I went to get these overpriced sausages to take to my BBQ, right there on the back of the packet was the Best Before sticker, which had expired 3 days prior. They got me again. I like supporting small local business, but this place give small business a bad name. I genuinely hope they go out of business and I no longer have to look at that eye sore of an establishment every-time I drive thru Enderby.
Unbelievable tourist trap featuring outrageously over priced, imported and prepared foods with no indication of cost until hitting the till... after a massive wait. Every employee is friendly and will give you the hard sell/upsell. DO NOT buy the 'handmade by mennonite elves' schtick. The food is mostly imported from the US and of questionable quality. There are actual Canadian Food Inspection convictions against the owner (Google it- it's true). Be prepared to sit down before you check your receipt. Quite a few recent suspect reviews here, as last year it was pretty much negative across the board. Come for the goats, leave for the genuine locally grown products in Armstrong or Enderby.
The sign said "Best Banana Milk Shakes". They don't even put ice cream in the shake. It was just milk and banana flavouring for $5.99! That was insane. I felt completely RIPPED OFF. Please AVOID this tourist trap. If you want ice cream, go another 5 minutes to the DQ on the right. Everything is OVER PRICED.
What a waste of space and money. Incredibly overpriced goods that are not even made by them. Almost every product is packaged and produced by another company. Complete tourist trap. Extremely fun for the kids for a quick stop to feed the goats but grossly elevated pricing to tourists kills any positive for me.
