Unfriendly, rude and bad experience overall.

Poor directions, we are visitors from UK din't realise people can be this rude, especially a person named Mike ? . I was told at the counter he was the owner.

Our initial directions were to follow the yellow flagged lanes and pick blue berries, never ever told there was a commercial area where we shouldn't pick the blue berries, kids are kids( ? Mike should realise , you can't tie them in a line)
Mike was literally shouting , yes he did warn the kids , but they were little ones, who did not warn the older children.
We all heard ?Mike mentioning that "you are from UK and you are not welcome here any more". How rude!

Goodness sake, they are just kids, they were excited as we never seen such farm before and never ever been told off with such rudeness.

I think Mike needs to learn some manners, and know how to interact with kids. If he could have informed us , we would have gladly obliged.

We ourselves did not know that it was a commercial blue berry area which continued along the yellow flagged lanes , there was no demarcation. Yes I agree they were running around but there was no warning or any signs that kids should not be running around and explore.

What kind of a farm is this , where children can't be free, i have to be specific that , none of them were wasting any blue berries , better put a sign that its only for adults, In UK we let kids to explore, play and learn.

We all left with a very bad taste, been to other fruit farms had great experience before.

We definetly would not recommend families with young children to attend this farm.

weren't going to respond however here we are. You were asked to keep children close to you and pick in the assigned field with the flags adjacent to the building. You wondered to the far back of the property and were asked to move to the front, your children were across the feild about 20 rows away or 50ft. We asked the children once to stop running through the bushes and pulling on the bushes, they continued that behaviour. Mike did indeed go round up your children while I quietly came to speak to you directly, and ask you to please move to the front, and you're children were too far from you creating issues on the otherside of the property. Whilst this was going on, Mike was approaching your children to ask them to go back to you, what we found them doing was breaking the bush branches and eating the berries by the handfuls and spitting them out.So did he get mad because they were completely disrespectful and causing damage - yes. You asked more than once to move ahead and take your children. When you and the 6 family members did come to the front, after being in the fields for well over an hour, I expected you to throw a few buckets of berries at me, I was prepared to say these are no charge and be done (infact thst entire day I had given out numerous free berries to families with children) to which you and 6 others arrived with nothing, I reviewed video footage of the feild and witnessed your family having an all you can eat buffet hiding in the back. I walked to the back to see if you dumped the berries out of spit, nothing as well. Since I was with Mike when he brought your children to yiu and he had himself on walkie talkie while I walked back to the front, at no time did he say anything about you being from the UK - how would he know that, an accent? Many people have accents here - even he does. While we love families - we have zero tolerance for damage and disrespect on the property and this is no different across Ontario. This is meant to be fun and a family experience together - not an amusement park. Canadians don't seem to have the need for signage to tell them to be respectful- in 40years we have never seen such disrespect. I would recommend in the future when visiting a farm or a business you show it as much respect as you demand yourself, keep your children in-site and correct them quickly if causing damage. You are lucky I did not charge you for the damage to the bushes and a fee. We wish you all the best and hope you have more respect going forward to other farms.

Wonderful fresh blueberries!
We got there just before closing. They willingly took the time to go pick a fresh basket for us.
