Guide to Farms and Orchards in Central Mass

Farms and Orchards | Central Mass Mom

Fall has arrived and Central Mass is the place to be for incredible farms and orchards! Central Mass is home to over 30 farms and orchards that offer apple picking, hayrides, cider donuts, and more.

All establishments are operating a bit differently this year. Each orchard has its own set of social distancing protocol that is subject to change. Some orchards are requiring reservations ahead of time. Make sure to check the individual website or social media pages for up-to-date social distancing protocol before your visit!

Wear your mask and keep a 6ft distance from your fellow apple pickers!

Check out this list (& bookmark it!) to find some
local farms & orchards to visit on these beautiful days!

This guide is sponsored by our featured farms. We are so grateful for the
support of local businesses and the community in making these resources possible!


We are a family operated farm and offer pick your own apples, grapes & pumpkins! All of our PYO items are priced by the pound. So, you get the opportunity to pick as little or as much as you would like! Make a reservation online to check out our Lost Civilization Corn Maze! In our farm stand, we carry a nice assortment of locally made items, not to mention all the fruits and vegetables we grow! At this time of year, our design-your-own caramel apple bar is open every day!
