Still apples on the trees and pumpkins in the patch.
This is it folks, Sunday will be the last day our stand will be open.
We will have hayrides, farm animals and the farm kitchen will be making cider donuts, pies and turnovers but it is advised that you call before you come and order pies and turnover as we will be making a limited supply.
After Sunday - apple picking, holiday pies and cider donuts will require you to call ahead to schedule a time to come to the farm.
You can still order pies, cider donuts and apple cider for Thanksgiving. Call us at 978-365-4331 and order now for pickup anytime before Thanksgiving.

Did you know?
Did you know that there are over 2,500 varieties of apples grown in the United States? However, the only apple native to North America is the Crabapple! Apples contain no fat, sodium or cholesterol, are rich in fiber, disease-fighting anti-oxidants and a variety of vitamins and minerals including potassium, folate, niacin and vitamins A, B, C, E and K. These nutritional powerhouses have even been associated with lower risk of cancers, stroke and diabetes! For more information about apples and their history, click here!
Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 tablespoon apple juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 (10 ounce) package Hershey's cinnamon baking chips*
1 cup apple, peeled, cored and chopped
Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease cookie sheet. Beat butter, brown sugar, egg, apple juice and vanilla in large bowl until creamy. Stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add to butter mixture; beat until blended. Stir in oats. Add cinnamon chips, apple and raisins; stir until blended. Drop by teaspoons onto prepared cookie sheet. Bake 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
*I couldn't find these at my local grocery store so I substituted with about 3/4 of an 11oz bag of butterscotch chips, and then added about a tsp of cinnamon to the batter.

Try making your own applesauce with seconds or drops. If you can get past their unsightly outer appearance, you'll find the inside is just as good and typically a third of the price or less. Once you've had homemade applesauce you'll never want to buy it from the store again. We choose tarter varieties such as early Mac's and Cortlands for delicious applesauce that lasts us through the winter! You can either freeze your applesauce or take it one step further and water bath the fresh sauce in mason jars for the perfect Christmas gift that everyone will love!
