“A Local Treasure”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

The newly-remodeled farm stand is awesome. What a drastic improvement. We love the new ice cream stand and went almost weekly during the summer. A great family-run business. The grilled cheese sandwich with homemade bacon and fresh-picked apples is one of the best sandwiches I've ever eaten.

“Love love love Volante Farm!”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

As the previous reviewer stated, there is really so much to see, eat, & buy here. The new deli is fantastic -- delicious breads, high quality meats & cheeses, and a fantastic menu (with yummy, creative specials). The bakery is heaven. The people are very friendly & helpful. I need my Volante fix at least once a week!

“Volante Farms has transitioned from farmstand to destination resort”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

This is not your father's farmstand any more. Volante has become a full-service, year-round one-stop shop for all your non-junk-food needs. (OK, and a few junk food needs too, as they have an ice cream stand onsite.)

Much of the produce is home-grown and clearly labeled as such, while the in-store bakery makes it an odds-on bet that some items will still be warm when you buy them. Their prepared foods and soups are excellent.

They also carry a thoughtful assortment of hard-to-find upscale packaged goods, refrigerated items, and sodas.

I myself shop here 3x a week, including about once a week when I stop to eat a sub, made with as many local and fresh ingredients as possible.

I could keep going on and on but I don't want to hog the internet.
