This was always a great place to go and pick fruit or just walk around. Unfortunately they have decided to close the public part of the place and go back to just farming. A sad day for all.
Been there many times over my lifetime... Sad when they started weighing your ice cream so you didn't get too much.. Lol.. But now they're closed so don't bother trying it out
Well this was a good place to stop, unfortunately there will be no more visits due to it being closed. One of those that you wish would not have closed but you cherish the moments you had here when it... read more »
VERY upset that this guy could be that inconsiderate as to not turn it over/sell it to someone else to run it! It was a great place and a destination every camping trip to Lakeside Beach just down the road. I really think it's ridiculous that he just closed it to retire! Let it live on old man, you're rude, uncaring and inconsiderate! You pissed of a LOT of Loyal customers. Do you even KNOW what loyalty means?
Granted it was very busy, it was still a great experience. My great grandmother, who is in her early 90's was with us. The very nice man who was driving the gator with the kids in trail, offered to pickup my great grandmother and drop her back off at the store! To whomever you are sir, you are wonderful. She was just telling me how wonderful you were! All in all, we got our apples and filled our bellies with delicious farm goods. Thank you Brown's!
Going to truly miss this place. My two boys and the rest of our extended family love this place. May Farmer Brown enjoy his retirement. Good luck and God Bless
Brown's is a nice, clean place. I'm giving it a two star rating though because I think it is ridiculous that they charge the parents of small children admission to the playground area (this is in addition to charging the for kids). I would think they would encourage families to be together, but apparently it's more important to make a few dollars. I forked over the $10 for my wife and I to go in, but there were quite a few that did not. It's a very nice playground and I have no issue paying for the kids to go in, but charging adults who clearly will not be "playing"in there feels like nothing more than being gouged.
Years ago, in its heyday, Brown's was the place to be in the summer. Drive out from as far away as Webster, pick some delicious fruit in season, then order a homemade waffle cone packed to above the edge with delicious Perry's Deluxe ice cream--huge chunks of nuts or fruit or whatever. (Four lines used to regularly run out the door into the driveway, and on a hot day, they might even run out to the road! But that ice cream was worth the wait!) Old Farmer Brown was there to hand out free apple-shaped balloons to the kiddos. The petting zoo was free (except the pellets to feed the goats). The gift shop was stocked with stuff kids could afford. Rockers all around the porch, just inviting you to sit and enjoy. Then old Farmer Brown either died or retired, and things changed. No more picnics on the lawn. No more free petting zoo. No free anything. No more Perry's Deluxe; now "homemade" ice cream--read that "made from a mix" ice cream, lacking the "real taste" of Perry's. No more huge cones; for a while the servers had to WEIGH the ice cream!!!! You-pick fruit costs more than it does to buy it at market and sometimes more than at Wegman's. Everything is a money-making scheme now. I still go sometimes to pick cherries, but I no longer recommend it to my friends as THE place to take kids in the summer. When I do visit, it makes me sad to remember what was.
