This page provides a detailed comments submitted by visitors to pick- your- own (PYO, U-pick, pick-it-yourself) farms in the Cincinati area of Ohio

In reading comments, whether they are positive or negative, bear in mind that everyone's experience varies.  We try to weed out emails which are clearly fakes or so extreme as to be implausible.  When we get negative feedback about a farm or orchard, we contact the farm, and provide them the comments (without any reference to the person who submitted them) to allow them to respond.  We then publish both the visitor's comments and the farm's response.

Don't pay too much to a single negative comment; rather, look for patterns.

In the past several years, we can happily say that negative comments are generally rare.  The vast majority of people find the the trip to be immensely rewarding!

  • Comments from a visitor on September 03, 2011: "Tukens is a lovely Farmers market and orchard. The owners were friendly. They had a good variety of apples to pick in their orchard as well. We really enjoyed going there and would recommend it."
  • Comments from a visitor on June 24, 2010: "I had a lovely visit to Tuken's Orchard. I spoke with the owner who was kind and knowledgable about their produce and products available. I picked red raspberries. The orchard is quiet, beautifully maintained and they have good prices. It is a great site for a family as they have multiple U-pick fruits and also have small animals for petting and visiting. Easy to get to from Dayton and well worth your time!!"
