  • On the road so will add the details for the amazing experience later!! Jim, thanks for the time you spent with my family, we had truly wonderful time!
  • We called 4 or so times and got no anwser it says its open from 10 to 5. The gate to the place was locked we drove along way to not be let in to do what we came for. The one man i did talk to was nice though
  • The manager has the key to the gate. How could anyone get in if he won't answer the phone, even after 10 minutes of continuous calling . We wasted 2 1/2 hours for nothing. We will not make the same mistake twice.
  • My daughter & I love this place! The people who run it, is absolutely wonderful. We had her birthday party there a few years ago and it was so much fun and a huge hit with all her friends!
  • Farmer Joe is the sweetest man alive and deserves the best. 10/10 recommend. He knows a lot about the gems and will answer any questions. We will be returning during the summer!
