Fall & Apple Picking Information

We can't wait to see you on the farm to celebrate autumn in New England! The orchards are filling up with beautiful apples - a true sign that the bounties from all the year's work is here. Let's pick!

Essentials

Below is a helpful guide to the coming season. Here are the 2 most important FAQs:

  • Pre purchased pick-your-own tickets required. To comply with MA Department of Agriculture (MDAR) guidelines for number of pickers permitted per square acre of each orchard, we need to know how many people are on the farm. Tickets must be purchased online in advance so we may appropriately stagger arrivals.   

  • Masks. MDAR requires all pick-your-own attendees to wear face coverings. Masks are required. Please help us keep the farm open to the public!


What's Happening

FARM STORE

Open daily 8 am - 6 pm

Produce, pies, cider donuts, grocery items, local goods and farmhouse gifts. Plus, Friday - Sunday, find your fall must haves in the Outdoor Market located adjacent to the main parking lot. See below.

NEW! OUTDOOR MARKET

Open air shopping for all fall faves. 

With challenge, comes innovation. This year we are opening a new farm experience for you to shop outside for apples, donuts, gallons of sweet cider, bottles of hard cider, maple, honey, jams n' jellies, corn, pumpkin whoopie pies & more!

 

Open Friday - Sunday 10 am - 4 pm near main parking lot.

HARD CIDER & CHILI BAR

100% Orchard Hard Cider

Cider Hill Cellars, the farm's hard cidery, will have bottles for sale in the Outdoor Market.

 

And make sure to visit the Hard Cider & Chili Bar on the main lawn Saturdays 11 - 4 & Sundays 12 - 4 for cider by the glass and a hot bowl of chili. About Cider Hill Cellars >

FOOD TRUCK

Classic farm fair.

The PitchFORK food truck is serving up family friendly snacks Wed. - Fri. 11-3 and Sat-Sun 11-4 to keep you nourished for playing and carrying bags of apples. See the menu >

NO HAYRIDES

A little tear.

To minimize wait times and to keep the community safe, hayrides will not be operating this fall. All pick-your-own orchards are within walking distance. (3-10 minutes.) Take in the crisp air along your beautiful stroll.

 

ADA access available. Please call the farm store for details.

BARNYARD & TRIKES

What's Open?

Enjoy feeding the chickens, playing on trikes, sandbox and swings! Utilize DIY Sanitization Stations and hand wash stations before and after playing.

The hay pile "marshmallows" and corn walk are closed this season to best keep all visitors and farm community safe.

PHOTO WAGON

The tradition continues!

For those who have an annual tradition of taking family photos in front of the pumpkin wagon, it will be there! Just expect it to be in a slightly different location.

PICK YOUR OWN

It's apple season!

Pick Your Own requires pre-purchased tickets this season. Sadly, we are unable to guarantee picking without tickets.

PUMPKINS & MUMS
