LOG BARN 1912 armstrong BC

The Log Barn 1912 has posted these statements on their website as truth.
However this is not the truth and the proof is right here now for the log barn 1912 to answer to.
I am disturbed with the the deceptive postings posted by this company,
I will gladly wait for a response to my gripe. ( however pleading guilty in a provincial court is in itself a response i suppose ?)

Here is what the LOG BARN 1912 has posted on their own site:

People work hard for their money and deserve to be compensated equally for what they pay.

we have held on to our vision strongly enough to drive us through adversity. In doing so, we have grown our tiny family roadside fruit stand in to an emergent business that supports and promotes the Okanagan region of British Columbia.

Opportunity favors the prepared mind… We have been preparing ourselves for another busy year! In addition to our famous pies and sausage, will be introducing new food items, gifts, and attractions.

These Posted facts above are not false and defamatory remarks glozed as “facts” in order to damage the integrity, reputation and operation of the Log Barn 1912 ,

There are numerous postings & blogs that support the guilty pleas to charges brought against this company, from people reporting food poisoning to moldy food products being cleverly placed at the bottom of the food basket for re-sale. reports of assault and abuse by the staff . animal abuse reports and fines that were imposed . Armed stand off with the Kelowna swat team where a family member held a loaded gun to his fathers head while in possession and under the influence of cocaine. weapons charges as well as several staff complaints. The information is available on the internet as blogs, posts and there have been numerous complaints to the RCMP, I would be happy to supply the dates and documents to support any of these facts about these gripes of mine.
One of the co-owners (family member) was charged and convicted for operating this business in Calgary without a license and charged with selling a meat product illegally as well prior to this set of charges posted above !
Is this a get rich scam by cutting corners and deceiving the public putting people at risk of becoming sick or injured ? if i am wrong about anything i am complaining about please correct me and i will recant my gripe !

notice in the you tube video there is nothing on the sausage packaging and the Sales Man Says and i quote, "This Sausage is in house made" by the Isaac Family ???? but the convictions or excuse me guilty plea says otherwise .
I also noticed the labels & lids on the jarred products are all made uniformly the same, and the charges by the Canadian food inspections were clear about the labeling law violations .
The lids look the same as the lids you would typically find at such chain discount stores like superstore sells as there inexpensive PC house brand ??? and the same color too?
The guilty plea was to the labeling charges leading me to think that the in house production crew made an error when printing off the new labels for the jarred goods & how about the sales man right on you tube telling us that the meat was local and made by them "in House" . as well as the fresh all natural juices, perhaps the juices from the left over spoiling fruit ? would be a fair question as the guilty plea was that the juices do not come from a federally licensed plant.

Why don't you vote with your wallet and go shop somewhere else?

Tour Guide's picture

I would like to put in my 2 cents here about the log barn and as a neutral person and as a Tour Guide who has brought people here what I think. I cannot comment on the accusations of the repackaging or therun ins witht the law or those things . Only what I see when I show up.

Positives . Friendly service, beautiful and interesting as an attraction. Tourists love the decor, the historical memorabilia and the animals. Plus they can buy stuff they can't get elsewhere. Good place for bathrooms too. No questions asked. Ie they don't say oh if you are not buying you can't use the bathrooms.

Negatives: over over over priced everything. The story of the rotten fruit on the bottom has happened to me before. As a guide they give us a measely cheapo 20% discount. ( not much gratitude for the business we give them. The fruit is not always local and hVe lied to me outright about it. Have often seen flies trapped inside the meat window. And not just once but 80% of the times I have been through. As for the meats and sauces being "fake" repackaged well the proof is in the legal action that was taken. It speaks for itself. Also I was kind of scammed on a purchase of sausage. The guy said " yeah you can take 2 for the road" what he failed to tell me was that it was more expensive that way
It cost $16 for 2 but cost $36 for 6. My 20% discount was turned to nothing

I am becoming more and more dissappinted with the stop and feel the negatives are outweighing the positives. Might not stop there anymore and will be advising other tour guides.
