“Martha's Gaarden”
Reviewed 18 December 2013

Went to Martha's date farm today for the 10:30 tour as advertised. Found that the tour did not run if there was less then 10 people. We were 8. At this time of year there is little to no activity on the farm. Harvest is in August/ September . The only thing open was the gift shop. This is a good place to shop for products made in this area. Dates of course, honey, syrups etc.

“Get your Dates Elsewhere”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

We visited the farm just after Thanksgiving. Had a couple of nice date samples in their store, and signed up for a tour the following week. The sign up sheet for the tour clearly said they needed ten people to do the tour and to call before to make sure there where enough people. We called the morning of the tour(two couples), where put on hold and then told there where not enough on the list but we should call again as the person who gave the tours sometimes gave them with less than 10. We did call again, but the tour giver was elsewhere and the woman I talked to took my phone number and said she would have him call me with a yes or no. We never got the call back.
When we were in the store we had picked out several gift boxes to send back to New England as Christmas gifts, but their charge card machine was down, our plan to take the tour and send the gifts did not work out. There are other farms who do these tours, notably across the border in Southern California, when I called , they called back, provided a great tour, and sold us a bunch of dates, good shakes too.

Reviewed 19 October 2013 via mobile

Disappointed! Looked at website, didn't say it was closed. Drove over & sign said Closed for Season. Apparently the date store is open M-F & we went on Sat. :(

“Book early.”
Reviewed 29 September 2013 via mobile

Martha's tours are inexpensive and quite informative regarding the date industry. But book early as they fill up fast. They have the best date shakes in the area (better than Imperial or Sun).
