Out of the Inbox - Lee Turkey farm taking advantage of Frum Yidden 

Sent in by a Chaptzem reader

An open letter to the Jewish community

There is a farm that is in new jersey that is called lee turkey farm people go there through the year to pick fruit and vegetables they have a fee of about 4 or 5 dollars to buy for the season per family pass and then you pay what you pick but there is no entrance fee I have taken my family a couple of times

I was shocked when I came there last Sukkoth chol hamoed that they had a charge off $5 per person even for kids and there must have been hundreds of jewish people there. When I questioned them they came up with an excuse that they call these days Fall Harvest Days Festival when I questioned them what days this is on they gave me the dates of all chol hamoed after checking their website, I noticed that they do not have any other days with a $5 per person charge besides for chol homoed which seems to me that they are taking advantage of the Jewish community and people are just going and paying these prices. I have done some research and found out they have been doing this to our community for years.

People lets put an end to this; let’s not go! There are a lot of different farms and places that are not taking advantage of the Jewish community. Let’s call them and tell them we will not come until they remove the $5 fee per person. Phone 609-448-0629 email them @ www.leeturkeyfarm.com

From their website I don't see anybody taking advantage of frum Yidden. The prices are equal for the entire season. The reader might have been there previously when the prices were lower.


Click on the "Farm Tours" tab:

Above the charge, they do not offer hey rides on the days of chol hamoed. On regular days the hay rides are free for children.
