Longaberger has taken a dive since moving the pottery to CHINA here is an example of my pottery plates made in the USA vs. China. The Pottery form the USA is older and will not scratch and scuff as it is being used.

The building is interesting from the "Big .... " type theme but it is now out of use and is showing it. The paint is fading, weeds are growing and all that I remember from 10 years ago. The homestead may have been in better...More

The big apple basket is still a great photo op, but most of the once thriving homestead is nearly empty. In fact, the stoplight where cars and busses were backed up for miles is being removed for lack of traffic. The company's former office building,...More

Took a side trip to Longaberger Basket Factory on our way toward Pennsylvania. We were there on Sunday afternoon, Oct. 30. No tour buses or large groups of shoppers so we could wander around admiring everything Longaberger! Of course things are pricy, but the venue...More

I have visited Longaberger ' s Homestead several times over the years. The first time I went it was a booming, beautiful establishment (lush grounds, multiple buildings, a basket lovers dream). Not the case anymore. The grounds are falling into disrepair. Most buildings have closed...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.
