This is not what it used to be. We stopped here to see the factory and Homestead as we did many years ago. It looks like a theme park that closed several years ago. But, the lady at the basket shop across the street said...More

Yes, at the factory but not at all times. Call ahead for available hours and park at the factory outlet. Shuttle from the Homestead is no longer running.
