    They jacked the prices here in 2017 to an insane degree. On a Friday morning, $26 admission (with tax) for a family of four. Then $7 per pound of raspberries and blueberries on top of that.

    Beautiful farm. Huge variety to pick from: veggies, apples, pumpkins, etc. After you're finished, grab a bite. Perfect food for a crisp fall day. Best fries I've ever eaten and wild mac & cheese!

    Good farm. Lousy attitude of managers that work here. If you are looking for a friendly farm go some place else. If you wanna be part of a herd come here.

    Fantastic apple picking experience though be warned: it's like an amusement park given how crowded it gets!

    I have left multiple suggestions with Foursquare to edit the address and hours listing. Alstede Farms' address is 1 Alstede Farms Lane, Chester, NJ 07930. The farm is open every day from 9am to 8pm.

    A fun place to buy delicious, fresh produce, homey baked goods and fabulous ice cream. Terrific for families because of events, pick your own and a farm animal petting zoo.

    It's like a farm theme park, likely because it is one of the closest to NYC. They do nickel and dime you.

    Pumpkin picking is really fun. I also enjoyed the wine tasting. Don't forget to stop by the store on your way out to get some delicious cider doughnuts and a pumpkin pie.

    $15 for a day pass and all you get is pony rides (2 laps) and bounce house? Rip off. Bought a bad of carrots to feed the animals - too bad they were moldy. Yuck.

    Expensive as hell. Really unfriendly. Completely outrageous policies. Will force you to buy even worm infested corn. Crowded and money hungry to the nth degree. Stay away!

    I've been here 3 times and the other times I came in November and it was wayyy better. This time there were long lines and it seemed like nothing was worth it

    They GOUGE you for pick-your-own, charging 60% more for blueberries than they do in the store. Most places charge less for PYO.

    Restrooms - 3 urinals 1 stall for men, only 3 stalls for women. Long restroom lines for women, plan accordingly! This place can get busy!

    Be sure to wear comfortable clothing and shoes - hiking boots, jeans/shorts, etc...roads and walking paths are not well-suited for stroller so consider alternatives.

    This place is great! Fruit and veggie picking. Hayrides. Corn maze. Animal petting bouncy house horse rides Just skip the food. It's gross.

    Go down the road to Stoney Hill Farms instead. Alstede nickel and dimes you for everything. $1 for a box to put your picks in, entrance fee to get in. No help to be found in the fields. Never again.

    Awesome for Berry/Fruit Picking. Beware the raspberries though - lots of tiny little bugs inside. The Strawberries were pristine and perfect though Read more

    For a city girl, I would say this was worth the hour ride. Awesome corn maze even though I wished I knew something about boy scouts, hay ride was interesting and awesome apple cider and cider donuts.

    Worth the hour or so trip. Apple cider donuts are stellar. Try the fried pickles. Animals and hay/tractor rides for the kids. Also, good place for birthday parties.

    Unless you don't mind spending the whole day (there is enough to do) come early!!! This place gets packed and everything becomes a 45 minute to an hour wait.
