We are a family operated farm and offer pick your own apples & seedless grapes as well as concord grapes. Pumpkins will be available this year but in and around our farm stand.  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! Lanni Orchards presents “The Amazing Bee Corn Maze” this year! You can order tickets online or you can purchase them in our farm stand!

In our farm stand, we carry a nice assortment of locally made items, not to mention all the fruits and vegetables we grow! It is definitely the most wonderful time of the year! There are lots of choices in the fruit & veggie world, get them before they are gone.

At this time of year, our design-your-own caramel apple bar is open every weekend!

We are open year-round and have locally made products along with apple cider, cider donuts, apples, winter squash, and hot mulled cider!

Sholan Farms is the last U-Pick orchard in Johnny Appleseed’s birthplace of Leominster, MA. We offer a great selection of Pick Your Own fruits including apples, peaches, raspberries and blueberries. We are open 7 days a week from 10am to 5pm.

Situated on a hilltop with panoramic views of surrounding hills and even Boston on a clear day, the farm provides cross-country skiing, walking trails, bird watching, picnic area and a variety of cultural and folk events throughout the year.
