Overview
More
Mr. & Mrs. Puddicombe along with their four children and staff mission is to provide families with the opportunity to visit the countryside and embrace what Mother Nature provides us among family and friends. It's the simple things in life that make all the difference and create the best ever-lasting memories. For more than 210 years Puddicombe Estate Farms & Winery has harvested its own fruits to provide fresh produce and a wide variety of value added products such as hand-baked pies, jams, jellies, cookies, tarts, strudels, cider, fudge and wines. In the last few years Puddicombe Estate has adopted a field to table approach with all of its catered events serving items grown and picked for the occasion right from the farm or brought in from other local growers within a 100 mile radius of Puddicombe Estate. Puddicombe Estate believes that a farm fresh meal is a very basic yet integral part of maintaining a strong bond with families and friends. We believe this philosophy strengthens our communities and enriches our lives.

We came here for a wine tasting and it seemed that when we were looking to be helped for the wine as well as in the gift shop part, the service was very slow and it took a few minutes to have someone help us....More

Their site states its $20 for those over 5 but when you get there they say its per person. So guess what a family of 4 costs $80 (incl a 4 and 2yr old). Its not worth it at all.More

We used to love this place, it is very close to us and it is kind of a family thing to go cherry/apple picking together. We understand that it is a working farm, but this year it is a bit too much... I couldn't even...More
