Corporate Groups, School Trips & Birthday Parties
We warmly welcome groups to come to the farm. We have found those planning corporate outings, field trips and birthday parties are looking for 4 things: apple picking, donuts, cider and a place to have a bite to eat. Here's what we recommend:
Step 3: When you arrive on the farm, head into the Farm Store to pick up your apple picking bags and donuts at the registers. Before you get to the counter, it's a great time to grab gallons of sweet cider from the fridge. $8.75/gallon.
Step 4: Make yourself comfortable at the picnic tables under the tent or on the main lawn. We do not reserve tables but the entire farm community is gracious and make space for one another. We do not offer lunch to groups but welcome you to bring or have your own food delivered.

Please leave pets at home.
While we LOVE our furry friends, too, pets are not permitted on farm property per regulations set by the State's Health Department.
We accept cash, credit, debit and apple pay. We accept SNAP benefits in the Farm Store.
We welcome photographers and their clients to utilize the farm as a backdrop to family photos. All photography must happen during business hours 8 am - 6 pm. Orchards all close at 6 pm so please plan accordingly. Anyone entering the orchard must purchase a picking bag including families here for photo sessions. This works out well though as it's a nice option to have your families able to pick apples on the way out or as part of the photo session.
Amesbury is the epitome of fall in New England. With winding country roads to enjoy foliage, a brick downtown dotted with pumpkins and leaves, and the #1 Apple Picking Spot in the Country, there is nothing quite like Fall in Historic Amesbury.
