Sign up for email updates for details this coming spring
Although The Farm is currently closed, we have opened a new Online Store, with ordering Mondays through Fridays, and pickup on Saturdays! Please click on the the Shop Now button to see what we will be offering. We are adding new items every day.
We have had many inquiries regarding IF and WHEN we will be able to open Pick-Your- Own (PYO).
The good news is YES!!! We will be open for picking once we have ripe fruit, and enough berries to accommodate PYO. We predict this will be about mid June. Other farm features such as food service, ice cream, and the barnyard and playground may open before PYO. We are awaiting guidelines for Phase 2 of reopening Massachusetts, which are scheduled to be announced on June 8th.
MDAR (Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources) has released guidance for Pick-Your- Own farms to follow in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. In order to protect the health and safety of our staff and guests, along with meeting the requirements set by the State, pick your own will need to run differently this season.

Check out our fruit seasons page and join our mailing list to see when our fruit crops are ready for you to come out and pick.
Please observe all rules for the benefit of all of our customers and our farm Always check in at the PYO shed first to get picking locations and information. Please pick only in designated areas, which are carefully selected based on the ripening schedule of our fruit. We provide picking containers. Wear appropriate clothing for the weather, don’t forget hats, sunscreen, and a bottle of water! We recommend wearing closed-toe shoes good for walking on uneven ground and to protect your feet from sticks and other hazards. If you drop any fruit on the ground, we ask that you please make every effort to pick it up and purchase it so that no fruit is wasted. Many labor-intensive hours go into the care of our crops. Children must be accompanied by an adult, and must stay within arms reach at all times. Please dispose of trash in proper receptacles. Please be considerate of all of our customers and observe our no smoking policy. Pets are NOT allowed on the farm due to health regulations. Picnic tables are reserved for customers who purchase food from Farm Kitchen. Please no outside food. See our Recipe Book for more handling, processing, and fruit recipes!
