I love CN Smith, plus they're a lot closer to us than Ward's is. That said, I do enjoy Ward's for the variety of products I can get there, and we get organic veggie boxes with them in the winter. (And I'll be honest, the smoothie bar and the play area are lifesavers when you have a four year old and a two year old.) While CN Smith do have an area with farm animals, once you're out in the berry patches it's just a parking area, a porta-potty, and berries.
I've gone to CN Smith for blueberries, raspberries, and apples. We do pumpkins through our CSA (Sauchuk Farm) and we also do apples at Shelburne Farm in Stow.
We did strawberries at Ward's for the first time this year, and I hated it, though I'd chalk that up to the fact that strawberries are low-growing and sun-loving and we went on an obscenely hot day. I don't know that I'd have been any more comfortable at CN Smith under those conditions.
