Halloween Weekend: Picking and Carving!!

We're heading into the weekend before Halloween and we are gearing up for a great Halloween night pumpkin light!  This is a Westford tradition that has now spanned generations.  Come after dark and enjoy hundreds of jack-o-lanterns that are spread through the orchard in a walk that is out of this world!  This is a free event for the public and our way of saying "THANK YOU!" for a wonderful fall season.  Note: the parking lot does fill up so please be patient, go around the block and come back if we are full when you first arrive. We would welcome talented pumpkin carvers to help out this weekend. We will provide the “gutted” pumpkin, tools and stencils, if you would like to contribute to the pumpkin light.

We will also be picking apples (yes, plenty still on the trees!) and we have tons of pumpkins to choose from for your jack-o-lantern. For apples, we have plenty of cortland, empire, and golden delicious. We also have some mcintosh and macoun but you have to hunt around a bit to get them.  Check in on our Facebook page for the picking conditions this weekend, as we are expecting a Nor’easter on Saturday. Weather permitting, the fire will be roaring for orchard-side s'mores.  The fall foliage is gorgeous!

Our retail area is also packed full of just picked apples of all varieties (including Honeycrisp), great pumpkins of all sizes and shapes, fresh cider donuts (while they last!), ice cold apple cider and root beer.  There's plenty to do to have a great fall outing. Hope you will join us!
