  • This place is great for picking your own. A lot of fun. They have a lunch counter that was packed. So many fabulous treats to choose from in the bakery. It's a really nice Shop. The lady behind the co...  more »

  • We had a great time and experience here. You go for the fun time with your family. If you are cheap then just go buy your fruit from the store. The customer service was also impressive as opposed to some reviews we read before going here. The "rules" people complain about are meant to help. Thanks for the wonderful time and keep up the hard work here. Don't listen to ridiculous customers who are not "always right".
  • Very pleasant experience picking cherries with the family. Sure there are rules and instructions, but they're not onerous at all. The farm is very organized and neat. The cherries are delicious!
  • It's the worst farm in the whole Ontario. Staff is very rude and unfriendly. They have so many restrictions for fruits picking that clients cannot read on the website in advance but can only find out at the farm. Some of then: - You are allowed to stay and pick fruits only for 40 minutes - when you have 2 toddlers it's almost impossible. - You have to pick cherries (for example) only with stems... Why do I need stems in my basket???!!! - You have to show your entry ticket every time when stuff members see you... Am I in prison???! - You are allowed to pick fruits only to specific level of the basket. - And the most ridicules is the price - $5 per person to "entry" the farm and $5 per tiny basket. (see the picture) BUT!!! If you want an additional basket it's $10! I would rate this farm as -5 stars if I could.
  • I really don't mean to be rude but this farm is by the far the worst one I have been to. I find it very unreasonable that they give a 30 minute time limit to pick fruit.. I mean let the kids see the farm, learn, enjoy...make a memory for gods sake. Also, the policy of no water bottles on a hot day is utter nonsense. To be honest, as nice as the location of the farm is, I'll never return here and will make sure I share my experience with anyone I know. We went to Cherry Avenue Farms the next day, and the experience was top notch!
  • Very rude and unpleasant employees. So many rules before you even get in, so you don’t even want to go and cherries not sweet and tasty at all. My worst experience ever.

Where to stay in Niagara-on-the-Lake

Niagara-on-the-Lake abounds with accommodations that can be more affordable than those just a few minutes south in the city of Niagara Falls. The town's grid-like streets offer an array of choices, with Mary Street, Mississauga Street, and Queen Street among the most popular. If you're looking for something a bit more luxurious and don't mind paying extra, stay near the lakeshore and enjoy waterfront views from your bed and breakfast.
