  • Seriously the best pick your own farm around! We've been going here since 2011 and I love it more every year! Last year they started putting up signs on the apple trees which makes it easier to find my favorites and this year they opened up a brand new store which made check in and check out run faster! You really can't beat the prices here and a $5 minimum purchase is one quarter of what it costs just up the street at Golden Harvest, and there's wayyyyy more apple varieties here! This farm is a WIN for me and my kids!
  • Until today we (my husband and myself) used to be the loyal customers of Samascott farm in Kinderhook , NY. We visited it for more than 10 years and usually spent more than $40 per visit in a season. We just love to pick up berries, fruits and vegetables, and we loved this farm. Until today. We saw a message on their website saying that strawberries are ready for pick up. Also it seemed too early for strawberries to be ripe we decided to give it a try. At the entrance we noticed some changes: now you have to stay in line to enter the farm and again stay in a long line to exit, which seemed quite inconvenient. You can’t just park anyplace and go to the store to pick up a map or pay for the goods as it used to be. As we expected strawberry on the field didn’t look good, it was unripe and needed at least one more week of sun. We didn’t even taste it, it looked absolutely unappealing. So we decided to come back in a week. Other vegetables they had, such as rhubarb and pees, were beyond our interest. On our way out we were stopped by a sales assistant (later calling himself a manager) and asked to pay $5 per person for nothing. As we didn’t pick up a single berry we suggested him to check our car and let us go. He refused implying that we might have consumed some. We didn’t share his idea of having 5 pounds of green strawberries for lunch as well as 6 pounds of pees or rhubarb for 10 bucks, maybe because we are picky and have different diet, so we refused to pay. The guy took a picture of our car plate and threatened us. Well, he can be proud of himself, he performed his duty and squeezed the money out of us. When we insisted on having a receipt, “the manager” tried to write something on a scrap paper. We asked for a real receipt, that he eventually produced to us. So we left feeling disappointed and humiliated. I don’t think 10 bucks will make the farm owners richer, but if the policy of humiliating customers make them happy, they won’t stay long. If they judge people by the way they are themselves and suspect a thief in everyone, they won’t stay long. Because there are other farms, where no one will search your car and accuse you in secretly eating their products, where people are treated with respect and courtesy. This is the place we’ll go.
  • Less busy than the other guys (easier access and friendly service) in the heart of quaint Kinderhook. Would be 5 stars but out of cider donuts hours before close time.
  • My friends and I went there to pick up strawberries. Their fruit is nice and relatively cheap compared with the same thing sold in local supermarket.
  • Decent selection of strawberries and lots of room for people to pick without stepping over each other
