Strawberry Tour: Strawberries are our first crop of the year here at the farm. You and your group will load the wagons and take a wonderful tour of our historic farm. Then we’ll proceed to one of our strawberry fields where you pick from our plump, juicy, sweet strawberries! Enjoy an apple cider donut, and a refreshing drink from our farm stand!
Blueberry Tour: Blueberries are a sweet treat on a hot summer day. Our blueberry Tour offers fantastic views of the farm from your very own hayride tour and an education about the special conditions it takes to grow each blueberry plant. Leave the farm with a container of sweet berries, enjoy a fresh apple cider donut, and a refreshing drink from our farm stand!
Apple Tour: By far our most popular fruit-picking option! Enjoy a crisp fall day at our farm while you ride the wagon through beautiful New England Fall foliage. The wagon stops half-way through the orchard tour where you’ll get out and pick some apples as our tour guide explains the apple growing process, the many varieties of apple and the proper picking technique! While on your visit, you’ll also enjoy a fresh apple cider donut, and a refreshing drink from our farm stand!
Pumpkin Tour: What says fall more than pumpkins, cider and a fresh apple cider donut? Our Fall Pumpkin Tour is a lovely wagon ride around the property capped off with a walk to the pumpkin patch just beyond our barn. Pick your own sugar pumpkin, and have a refreshing drink and a special snack from our farmstand!
