I would give this place ZERO stars. I went with my little niece and nephew for a fun day of peach picking, and instead we were BULLIED and intimidated by a bunch of thugs that took our money but wouldn't let us pick ripe peaches. AFTER paying, we were directed to two rows of unripe little green peaches with a bunch of other people. We couldn't find any decent peaches at all. When we went one row over where there were nice big peaches, we were yelled at by a different bunch of thugs. I'm talking steroid using muscle bound gold chains and gold teeth. The kids were frightened. I got them out of there and went to Lewin farm, where they more than made up for the bad experience we had at Davis. I tell EVERYONE not to go there. Friends, family, and coworkers all know not to bother wasting their time and money at Davis.

I have been coming to this farm for 25 years and I will never stop! The fruit and vegetables are great. Best peaches ever anywhere. You do have to pay for what you pick, don't know why people find this shocking. After all you have to pay at restaurants and supermarkets.
The woman everyone has been referring to as Mrs. Davis was fired by the real Mrs. Davis after video cameras were installed and the real Mrs. Davis saw what this other woman( also named Christine) was doing. Yes she was a disgusting pig but the real Davis' took care of that.
Go there. They have been farming for over 225 years. If it was as bad as these people have posted they would never have lasted so long.
When you do go and pick take notice if how their"customers" gorge themselves on the fruit and how they destroy the place.
Too bad all of their satisfied customers don't post.

WHOLE EXPERIENCE
Me & my family had been camping at a nearby state park and were enticed by signs of fruit picking. Only peaches were in season. Upon seeing overpriced (say $8 for a little basket of plums) and thinking we might find some good fruit like they have for sale, we wanted to enter the orchard. We actually bought some fruit and told them to hold it for us because we were lured in by a seemingly simple explanation and a satisfied customer. I assume the customer was satisfied because he didn't need his money back. He said the peaches were near, they were delicious and he was stuffed eating them. Sounds good right? So we go get information. My family speaks Spanish so the guy explains: "How many people? Six? Okay so you pay $20 deposit to enter. What you don't buy, you'll get back." She also asked how much it was per pound and he said two something. It sounds fair although looking back, it's less fun and ruins the spirit of pick & pay. We were overly excited so the walk to the peaches seemed short but it was actually far. This place is huge yet we weren't allowed to get any of the peaches near us. It was all taped off. We talk to some of the workers and they tell us it's at the end. Finally, we see it - only 2 lines at the far end are open to us. We see small and unripe peaches and keep walking. We see some bigger ones and pick them to taste them but they don't taste juicy, only sour. So we start only picking ones that are more soft to touch (meaning ripeness) but they don't taste good. It's scorching hot so we give up. My little sister has gotten 4, hoping they'll get riper at home. We walk back and tell the workers we didn't like them on our way and they smile widely and scoff lightly, almost as if they know they aren't good. With our empty bags, we make our way back. We ask for the fruit we bought previously & my mother's boyfriend goes to pay for the peaches my little sister picked. "Wait, where's the refund?" my mother's boyfriend asks. The cashiers say "No, no refund." I was so shocked I couldn't manage a response. I would have told them to get rid of their attitude and to understand we were not told what they were telling us; otherwise we wouldn't have entered! We're upset hearing this and say, "but why? The man told us different." The cashier who we were paying for my sister's fruit scoffs rudely and not looking up says "There are signs all over the place." But there are not. My mother says "not in Spanish" and adds that the guy explained so differently in Spanish. "Yeah, there are." My mother says "bring the guy we talked to over here" and the cashier responds sarcastically "yeah, cool" as if he couldn't care less. Unfortunately, the guy we talked to is nowhere to be found. No refunds either! It would've been really simple to return our money also but yet they decided to bring Christine Davis and to haughtily tell us off. She said she was there when the man explained it to us, but she was not, it was only three men behind the stand. Continuing she talked of how the man had explained it was a "minimum of $20." NEVER did the guy explaining the rules say MINIMUM. He said what we didn't buy for, we would get back. We were also called "stealers". What exactly did we steal? They were the ones who ripped us off. She also said she spoke Spanish but she didn't understand what we were saying when we were not speaking in English. We had enough and started to walk away, "yeah, leave!" she said. My mother said we were not coming back and she said "Don't come back! Yeah, bye." She had the hugest attitude ever I felt as if she was used to people that felt ripped off. "Go steal somewhere else!" she shouted. As if we were stealing? None of us had any bags on us, as unaware of the many rules as we were.

I went to this peach farm last weekend and witnessed first hand what the reviews are saying. I never heard of leaving a deposit to pick apples. If you don't pick $10 worth of apples, they keep the remaining money, what kind of crap is

When I was a child, my father knew the owner and I spend the best years of my childhood at Davis Peach farm. I spend every birthday as a child picking strawberries with my brother,and eating peaches, that gushed and until this day no one grow peach like that Great . When, I heard that they sold the farm in Soundbeach and I cried, it was as if they took my childhood from me. Why, can't people see that farm was apart of history on Long Island, it make me sick, that People just can't see, that being a farmer is a gift and they put their heart and soul into the land. Not just anyone can be a great farmer, I loved this farm and now apart of me is gone. I love them and never got to thank them for sharing their knowledge with me. You are a blessing to me. You taught my father,he taught me and now I teach other, so I can honor you. Thank you, you will alway be a special part of my heart

So its a beautiful Sunday afternoon my family and I decide to take a ride out and do some apple picking.. we had no idea what we were in for at Davis.. dead and rotten apples and apple trees.. alot of restricted areas roped off.. people following you (lord knows why) we couldnt even fill more then one bag with apples and we paid a $20 deposit. we explained there was really nothing to pick they told us to get our moneys worth we had to go back and pick more instead of getting a refund for what we didnt use.. but theres nothing to be had here, and it is NOT family friendly, and they have terrible customer service. Terrible experience. DONT WATSE YOUR TIME!

I had read the rewviews before going to this place and did not want to go..but my daughter really wanted to pick peaches. So I figured we would try it out for ourselves. Upon arriving I noticed the unprofessional handwritten signs all over, posting that there were no handbags, no strollers..then it said we will search your strollers?? confused . There is a Man at a table upon entering surrounding by a lrge crowd of non-english speaking people, could not figure out what they were doing there but it was odd. Then He told me I had to pay a ten dollar deposit, and b/f I knew it he slapped some sort of theme park bracelet on my wrist. I told him we only had 5 dollars left for the day could my daughter just pick a few peaches..he said no it's a 5 pound minimum anyway. (which he did not explain in the beginning) He said whatever the difference was on what you picked, you would be refunded. Then I said thanks anyway but my pocket book was in the car abd I did not feel like trekking all the way back to get my credit card. Then he says in a rude, nasty tone "Give me my bracelet back" oh yeah I was hoping to keep it for the next fashion statement buddy. In Addittion there are more signs all over that you are being minitored by closed circuit tv...in a Peach Orchard?? What are 4 year olds going to believe that ? Come on..don't insult our intelligence. This place is not even worth the gas to get to it. Do yourself a favor and go to Lewin Farms instead..they have apple picking and Veggie picking and the people who worked there were exceptionally nice. No rules, no nastiness. I mean how do you expect mothers with young children to not bring strollers? Do you know how hard it is to lug kids around? This place should be out of business!

In regards to your comment posted below - Gloating about other customer's unfortunate experience shows your level of professionalism. Whether it's arrogance or just pure ignorance, the amount of negative reviews speaks for itself. Perhaps its worth taking a second look and assess why people feel the need to even spend their time writing the negative reviews. Common sense would be to discern from these comments and amend what is neccessary.

I, too, am speaking from my own experience during my trip there. I don't need to elaborate because I had the same experience as the majority of these reviews - plus I don't want to "send them more business". I wonder of all the people that went there to "see if everything they have read is true", how many actually went back?

At the end of the day, it's a business. We, the consumer could only voice our opinion. What Davis Peach Farm decides to do about it is out of our hands. Sadly, we won't know if things would've improved because we won't be coming back.

I went here with my sisters and our three young kids, all toddler age, maybe they changed things but it looked like a normal farm, not a bootcamp or concentration camp as someone so light heartedly put it. The peaches were so juicy and big. There was no $10 surcharge at the time, and i didnt see any woman that was yelling and cursing. there were two very friendly guys. We were allowed to bring in strollers diaper bags and pocketbooks. We took pictures the entire time of the kids and my niece was eating a peach with no complaints of eating all the peaches. maybe they stepped up i don't know but this was last summer, and i had a great experience and there were no workers there that seemed like immigrants with knives...certainly not.
Also, the people who write a bad review, leave it at that, it really is pathetic to see grown people checking back and leaving comments to people who wrote a positive review, so if you are thinking of hitting that comment button to respond and show up my opinion, don't bother i won't check it and you'll just prove my pont about how dumb you are.

Davis Peach Farm has apples and peaches to pick or just to buy, whatever your choice. Their apples and peaches can't be beat and the prices are great. It is too bad that the some of the people who come to pick are dishonest making the owner's more like watchdogs than friendly merchants.

We went here to try someplace different. First of all, you have to pay $10 upfront for each group of up to 5 people. Then you have to choose between peachs and apples, not both. Plus, the guy collecting the money was a bit obnoxious to everyone. So, we went in and tried to pick apples. We only found two kinds, and they were small. Most tress were bare. The good trees appeared to be roped off, and we were warned not to go in that area. Lots of rules! Basically, we were unsatisfied and wanted to get our money back and leave. This is where is gets obsurd. We told there were NO refunds. The rude guy told us to go see the manager/owner. She refused to refund our money too. Then she got angry and nasty and starting cursing at us. She threw us out with no refund and would not let my friend go get her daughter in the orchard Iwho was with a friend). Threats of police involvement flew around. I turned people away before we left, so they lost more then our $10.

We left and went to Lewins Farms (near by) and had a great apple picking experience. The apples were larger and there was more selection, with no upfront payment.

Stay away from Davis!

It's a shame that these people who have complained about us have such wild stories. It's also too bad that the thousands of customers who are satisfied with our produce, our service and the time that they have spent here haven't added any good reviews. I did read the review by Agust and I thank them. This is a true operating farm and everyone is welcome to come. Oh and by the way, Hamilton 123, beachpeach5, daxathon, bluemoon111, say226 and phenomenah...you are sending me so much business because people are curious to see if everything they have read is true. So I would like to thank you all so much for the free advertising...IT'S GREAT!

Oh and by the way, Hamilton 123, beachpeach5, daxathon, bluemoon111, say226 and phenomenah...you are sending me so much business because people are curious to see if everything they have read is true. So I would like to thank you all so much for the free advertising...IT'S GREAT!

Pros: Picked Fresh Daily

Cons: Some of the customers are ignorant

This used to be a great farm. I remember going here as a young child. Im now 43 years old, and Im sad to have returned to see the farm turned into a third world prison farm. The manager, who claims to be the farmers wife(she claims to be Christine Davis) is a real piece of work. After taking $10, she sends you out to a litter pit, where you are supposed to pick fruit. Only problem is that there is no fruit. If you wander from the designated fruitless section, you are greeted by persons with knives yelling at you in spanish. If you ask the manager to open sections of the farm that may have fruit, you are yelled at, and threatened. You are then told to "Get off my farm!"" Dont ask for your money back, you will only be threatened with bodily harm by some undocumented workers. This should not be happening on Long Island.. I am sure that the real owner is not aware of this abusive manager. I remember how nice this place was. After comming here with my family, and seeing this display of uncivilized behavior, I am trully saddened, and just a bit angry. In short, go to LEVIN FARMS just up the road. They are still true AMERICANS, and dont have the low class attitude that seems to have taken over at the Davis farm. Thank you Chritine Davis for showning me just how low a good old farm can get. Your husband must be proud of the legacy you are creating for his formerly good name.

Pros: Nothing good about this place any more.

Cons: Concentration Camp atmosphere.

This used to be a good place to peach pick.

NOW you have to pay $10 in advance. So if after you have walked 1/2 mile to the trees, and you only pick 3 pound, you are out of luck. You dont get any of your $10 back as a refund. Secondly, if you pick more than pounds then you have to pay EXTRA money.

We went there, we went in the rows they told us, put we mistakenly picked plums and "donut" peaches in those rows. There were no signs. They confiscated all of our peaches and told us we HAD to pay them $5 per pound for the donut peaches. THen they cursed at yelled at us when we walked away --- leaving our $10 deposit because they would not give it back.

Do yourself a favor go to LEWINS. Its only 1 mile west on sound avenue on the right hand side.

Pros: Lewin Beach Farm is 1 mile WEST on Sound Ave.

Cons: The worst people to deal with, you have to pay in advance ??

I have read the reviews posted and i really am suprised. I have been going to Davis Peach Farm for over 20 years as well as the other local farms. The Davis, work hard all year long, and they still have pride in what they do. Believe me, their product shows it. They are kind people. Just ask to speak to one of them. I have seen conflicts over the years and I can tell in all truthfulness that the conflicts are always caused by people who visit the long island farms, steal, expect everything for free,want to eat everything, liter the orchard, etc. etc. I have witnessed people caught stealing in their pocketbooks, diaperbags, their clothing etc. and when they are caught they laugh as if its ok. They wouldn't be laughing if they were caught at a supermarket or a restaurant and the police had been called. But for some reason because its a farm everyone thinks it ok or a joke.The owners are not paranoid they are tired of seeing their farm being hauled off to the city and elsewhere by people who feel entilted to certain things. Both the Davis and Lewin Families have been an important part of Long Island history,and as a native long islander i hope the Davis can stay forever. If we keep loosinf our farms we are even more dependent on foreign countries and recent events have proven that those countries cant be trusted to keep our food safe and free from contaminants. Im tired of visitors ruining my island on weekends and holidays and being pushy, rude an demanding. Do that where you r from. Not here. And just so you know, Lewin Farms Farmstand was sold to a man who owns a house in hunts point market. You can buy his produce anywhere.

Pros: Best fruit available anywhere.

Cons: having to put up with tourist and citidiots

My wife and I decided to go out the on the island peach picking. We had seen an add for Davis Peach Farm in the paper and decided to check it out. When we got there we say about 100 signs that said No Strollers, No Diaper Bags, No Pocket Books, No cameras, No Knives, No Weapons, All bags subject to search, etc. etc. There were flood lights on all fhe fence posts. My wife and I thought this was very strange. The place looked like a concentration camp. Why would they not allow cameras?? The owners of this place must be paranoid lunatics. After talking with the snotty woman, about the 10$ minimum, we asked if the peaches were ripe and what the conditions were. I got the feeling the woman was being less than honest when she said all the peaches were ripe. We had seen Lewins farms on the way in to Davis and decided to try that instead, so we left without going in to Davis. The guy working at Lewins was very nice to us. We had a fun time and got a bunch of great peaches. I see no reason to ever go to Davis Peach Farm again. I can't believe they are still in business running their peach orchard like a prison.

Pros: None I can think of

Cons: Paranoid, No cameras or diaper bags, Workers are nasty.

I'm so glad that I read phenomenah's review before I went! I took his advice and went to Lewin Farm where peaches were indeed large and juicy. The guy working there was really nice and friendly, too. My friends and I went to Davis Peach Farm after having a great experience at the Lewin Farm, thinking maybe it wouldn't be so bad and we can pick other fruits from Davis Farm. First of all, we saw the many signs that said no this no that which included "no diaper bags, no pocket book". And when we asked them how it works with the fruit picking, the female that seemed to be the manager told us to read the sign, which said -$10 minimum, if you go over you pay the difference, if you have less than $10 worth of peaches we are even. They were absolutely mean and paranoid and we decided not to pick any fruits there, seeing that the review was absolutely true. As we were leaving, we saw that they actually had police there trying to have them arrest this guy who was "picking peaches for too long". He actually paid to pick and everything but it seemed that they told the police that the guy didn't pay and was trespassing. The police officers even looked annoyed and said they can't arrest him for picking peaches when he actually paid (the information the woman omitted over the phone to the police). The woman replied and said, "but he was there for over an hour and we found him in the trenches and he could've been eating all the peaches." We were all like, are they for real? We left astonished and wondered how they even have a business treating people like that. I will never go there again.

Pros: I was happy when I left the property

Cons: I visited the property

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!DO NOT PICK PEACHES AT DAVIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I went to Davis Peach Farm and had the worst time in my life. The Peach witch who works there, made my family day out, miserable. First they explained that we could pick rows 1-7. Keep in mind so were her immigrants picking. So my family along with 20 others were fighting off the farm pickers. Oh yeah also no camera's!!! I don't have that much family time, so if I want to bring my camera to capture the moment then so be it. I was thinking maybe there farm pickers were here illegally that's why we couldn't bring there camera's. Then when it was time to pay they took all the nectarines out. NO ONE ever said don't pick the nectarines. When we explained no one said don't pick them she said she was going to charge us 5.00 a lbs.

Whatever happen to us being the customer. I do not recommend going there. When I complained she told me to go to the grocery store to buy them.
This was the worst place for picking peaches. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!DO NOT PICK PEACHES AT DAVIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I went to this farm yesterday with my two sisters and was SHOCKED at our treatment. First of all, only 3 rows of peaches were made available for picking - and the peaches were all the size of walnuts - and unripe. When we found nothing large enough to take home, we were walking out of the orchard when 2 male workers started following us into the parking lot. They pointed to their MANY signs (no strollers allowed, no this, no that, charge for this, charge for that) and asked us if we had not seen the "$10 minimum" sign. When we refused to pay $10 to merely look at their unripe peaches, the horrid, psychotic female manager screamed at us, "We're going to take your car make and model and license plate number - and if you ever try to come pick peaches here again, we'll have you arrested for trespassing!" So we went around the corner to Lewin Farms where the peaches were large and juicy - and the person at the counter was friendly and warm. DO NOT GO TO DAVIS PEACH FARMS!! It was like going to peach-picking bootcamp or something!
