    A visitor writes on September 25, 2010: (positive) "The comment made about Windsor farm is hardly true at all. They are a local farm with wonderful things going on. Paying to get in is what keeps this place open! The writer with the negative comment must have been a benny and should stay at Fright Fest at 6 Flags or something. My fiance has been going to Windsor Farm since he was young and we 've taken our daughter there since she was a baby. This will be her 4th year going. It 's enjoyable, local and a nice place to relax and have fun. Windsor Farm isn 't a rip off at all."
    A visitor writes on August 03, 2010: (positive) "To the 2009 writer who complained about the Windsor Farm Market Pumpkin Fest...that's how all pick-your-owns do festivals like that. You pay to get in, enjoy the atmosphere, yes buy a pumpkin by size. They're local farms, do your part to support them. If you just want to walk in and be given a cheap pumpkin and then leave go to Walmart. I think whoever wrote that comment must not be familiar with autumn in the northeast. That's a pumpkin festival, and we love 'em! "
    A visitor writes on October 16, 2009: (negative) "We went to the Pumpkin Festival on 10/11/09. This was more like a pumpkin nightmare! They get you into the parking lot and you have to walk through a building to see the "festival"; however you must pay $6.00 per adult to enter the "festival"! We asked what we were paying the $6.00 per adult for and the man said we get a hayride. OK, so we parked took our baby out of the car(put her in the stroller...etc...) walked all the way to the doors, so we figured, we should go and see why all these people are here...we pay to get in and walk through the building. We get to the other side and see a band, a place to get hamburgers (which you have to buy tickets to purchase) a goat, oops sorry petting zoo... and the hayride. That was it! We paid $12.00 too listen to a crappy band! So we go on the hayride, which there aren't any bails of hay to sit on, you sit on the floor. Then they dump you into a "pumpkin patch” and hand you a bag! The driver of the tractor never said a WORD to us, just handed my husband a white plastic shopping bag! So rude! So I said well at least for the $12.00 we get a pumpkin. I pick out pumpkins (which were dumped here, not growing here) and proceed to exit. You have to PAY FOR THE PUMPKIN!!!! BY SIZE!!!!!!!!! They should have told us something!!! How ridiculous!!! I would not recommend this Windsor Farm Pumpkin Festival to ANYONE in my area!!! I know A LOT of people in my town and the word will get spread that it’s a total RIP-OFF!!!! Don't go and spread the word!!!"

    A visitor writes on September 27, 2010: "This was very nice for the kids to go pumpkin picking. They had a haybale stack for the kids to climb up tp the top. They also had a haybale maze for the kids to play in. They also had a pony ride for an additional fee. Also, a large corn maze too. Their market had lots of yummy homemade treats like pies and donuts. We were accompanied on our hayride with a talking "scarecrow" that made the ride a lot of fun, he was great! Just be aware that there is no apple picking here. "
