What was your first impression?

THE SCOOP

farmsAllison: Looked like a great little store front on a farm.
Carina: I almost missed it on the road, you have to keep an eye out, but seeing an oasis of farm in the middle of expanding suburbia was comforting.
Emily: A very simple yet friendly and welcoming farm. Loved the owners—extremely down to earth!
Jyl: Wow! This is super close to my house!
Quinn: Quaint & sweet.
Rachael: How cool it was that there was this big farm right in the middle of what seems to be a bustling part of Sandy and Draper. I had never noticed it!
Vanessa: Home. We come here very often and places like this, little farm stands, pick your own produce fields make me feel like home.

QUESTION

What did you like the most?

THE SCOOP

Allison: The family feel of the business.
Carina: The commitment that the Farnsworth’s have to what they’re doing, they’re passionate and dedicated, and I dig that.
Emily: Definitely the cider! And Livi loved it too…I think she “sampled” about a gallon’s worth that night! Of course, the “u-pick” option is wonderful too. I can’t wait to try that out with my kids!
Jyl: I loved the tour of the mill and how friendly the owners were. Wait! How could I forget? The Israeli melon ROCKED MY WORLD!
Quinn: Sampling a lot of their yumminess, like the Israeli melon – SCRUMPTIOUS – and their delicious apple cider!!! Ooh, la, la!
Rachael: That you can pick your own produce. I think that’s fun for the kids and as fresh as you can get. I was also intrigued by the honeycomb that they had in the store. I’ve got to go back and buy one!
Vanessa: The feeling of community, the love they have for their business, the joy and pride they put into all of their products and activities. My kids and I go there almost bi-weekly to buy cider and produce and mosie around the small apple orchard.

QUESTION

What didn’t you like?

.
THE SCOOP:

Allison: I loved it all.
Carina: It’s a little far for me to drive to get their delicious fresh produce (I live in Utah County.)
Emily: The location was too hidden away. Living in Sandy we’ve always driven by Farnsworth Farms but never really “seen” it.
Jyl: The stickers we got on the bottoms of our shoes and the dust.
Quinn: I thought it was sad that they’ve had to sell off so much of their land just to stay afloat. Made me mad that the community hasn’t supported them better in the past, but I’m excited that people are starting to come around & really support local farmers. I was also mad at the squash crops that were ruined last year by squash bugs—stupid bugs; I love squash.
Rachael: I’d love to see more products/variety in their store. It’s a little far for me, I’d love to make it a regular stop!
Vanessa: That they need more business. It breaks my heart to not see a wonderful company, family and high quality products not being embraced and supported by it’s community.

QUESTION

Would you visit again?

THE SCOOP:

Allison: Absolutely, can’t wait!
Carina: Absolutely, it’s a great chance to see exactly how they make cider and take care of the land, my kid was fascinated with all of the machinery.
Emily: Yes! I found out they have lots of great family activities so we’ll be back for the fall festival and maybe even “Charlotte’s Web” movie night!
Jyl: Absolutely! It was a fantastic family activity. The kids loved it!
Quinn: Absolutely! I’m very excited to go back for more produce & the raspberry seedless jam they were selling is like licking up a glop of heaven. Their fall activities sound like a lot of fun, too.
Rachael: Yes! I confused a cantaloupe for an Israeli melon last time and I’ve got to get one of those!
Vanessa: Yes and every time we go I invite a new family to go along with us. When you go call up a friend, relative, neighbor and invite them to come along. Help spread the word about this wonderful place!
