Saw this and others on your site and had to go for pictures. My grandchildren complained, but once we were there everyone thought it was a great idea. My GPS had us drive right past the entrance but we found our way in. The entrance was not blocked, so we drove in. Nobody was on the premises. It's a large piece of deserted property and quite a shame that it's been left to go to ruins. We took lots of pictures.

This was a beautiful stop. Loved the basket! The business really looks like it's closed down -- more like a ghost town. I'd read that it was closed until April, but it just looked closed down and out of business. Either way, you still can go and see the basket.

The basket has seen better days. The Homestead is officially closed, and deserted. The basket is starting to show some wear from the weather, and is not being maintained. We were able to pull up to a circle drive near the basket, get out and take a picture, and get right back in the car. [Diana, 08/27/2018]

We visited on a Saturday morning in peak season and the place was a ghost town, due probably in part to the decline in basket popularity and the massive downsizing they've undergone. Parking lots were weedy and huge sections were blocked off. We only saw two other visitors there, in the whole enormous complex...felt like an abandoned outlet mall.

The World's Largest Apple Basket was surprisingly well maintained, and there are several other large structures, like earthenware pitchers, on the way in.
