  • Went with family. Didn't have to wait long. Great fried chicken with all the fixings. Served family style. Great to shop afterwards at there market.  more »
  • Eckert is a great place to visit on pretty days or rainy days. There’s so much to do from picking your own fruit after riding to the field in a wagon to eating custard while listening to music.  more »

  • I had a great time! The place is very family-friendly. They have all kinds of stuff to do, so be prepared to spend a long part of the day there. Their Nursery is gorgeous and the prices are fair. They also have a cute souvenir store and marketing with a bakery inside and an area for cooking classes. They sell everything, like deli, wine, beer, coffee, soap, snacks, jelly, bread, baked meals, and of course produce. They have samples available around the store. They also have a restaurant and an ice cream store. We tried the vanilla ice cream cone, it was delicious. We collected peaches and blueberries, they were very good and sweet. The sunflower maze is fantastic, very beautiful! I took so many cool pictures! Make sure to bring sunscreen, they have plenty of ice-cold water available pretty much everywhere. Only seen one bathroom, the only reason I gave four stars instead of five.
  • Was great. Felt good to pick fresh peaches and blackberries. Was bit of a task for me . Disability. But the staff are very accommodating to those who are disabled. Made it worth the task. And there were also sunflowers and vegetables you can pick too. Apples will be ready end August mid September. The store , frozen Custard shop and restaurant is awesome. You can't go wrong going out there for a day trip.
