Thank you for a wonderful fall!

Drew Farms is now closed for the 2017 season. We ended the season with our Annual Pumpkin Light; what a night!  The weather was perfect and we were heartened to see how many of you came out to enjoy this wonderful Westford tradition. 

We want to thank all of you who came out this fall to enjoy the unique apple picking experience that we offer!  Its great to see people come and enjoy the orchard and what it has to offer. We would  also like to thank our fantastic musicians who joined us each weekend to provide orchard-side live entertainment in our picnic area: LukiesFortune, Morgan Minsk, Highway 51, and Dave Gerard and the Acoustic Truffle; you were all great! 

Hope you put us back in your calendar for next fall!  Let it snow!

Halloween Weekend !

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. 

We will also be picking apples (yes, plenty still on the trees!) and pumpkins from our pumpkin patch. 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.  In our picnic area we will be welcoming back Morgan Minsk on Saturday and LukiesFortune on Sunday. The fire will be roaring for orchard-side s'mores.  The fall foliage is gorgeous - bring a picnic and enjoy!

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!

Its the "PERFECT" Weekend for Apple and Pumpkin Picking

WE STILL HAVE PLENTY OF APPLES ON THE TREES FOR PICKING! This weekend, we will BE picking Macintosh, Cortland, Empire, Macoun, and Golden Delicious. Our other major activity is pumpkins picking from our patch - WE HAVE TONS!

In the orchard, Morgan Minsk (Saturday) and LukiesFortune (Sunday) will be entertaining you in our picnic area, as you enjoy the spectacular fall foliage surrounding the property with your family and friends. We do not have food on the property so don't forget your picnic basket!  From the top of the hill, you can see fall colors stretching across the Valley. We have TONS of pumpkins in the pumpkin patch for you to choose the perfect pumpkin for carving.  Remember, when you purchase your pumpkin from us, you are supporting our annual pumpkin light that is free to the public on Halloween night.  The fire will be roaring so that you can roast s'mores in the orchard picnic area.  Megan will be joining us again both Saturday and Sunday with Top Hat and ponies to provide rides through the orchard trees.  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!

ITS APPLES & PUMPKINS THIS WEEKEND

We are getting to the time of the season where everything is just about perfect: the apples are all at their peak, the pumpkin supply is plentiful, the picnic area is rocking and rolling, and the fall colors are finally coming on!  This weekend we will be picking Macintosh, Cortland, Empire, Macoun, and Golden Delicious.

In the orchard, LukiesFortune (Saturday) and Highway 51 (Sunday) will be entertaining you in our picnic area, as you enjoy the spectacular fall foliage surrounding the property.  There are endless secluded spots for you to take family photographs that you can cherish for years to come. From the top of the hill, you can see fall colors stretching across the Merrimack Valley.

Spring 2017

It is with great disappointment to announce that we will not be opening our spring and summer greenhouse business this year. Unfortunately, there is simply too much competition from larger, local operations for us to continue.  We hope that our loyal customers understand and will contact us if there is something specific we can help with. On the positive side, not running the greenhouse will provide us with the time we need to continue to make significant improvements and expand the orchards.  We are currently planning to open Drew Farm Labor Day weekend, September 2, with fall plants and apples.  

Don’t forget, apple blossoms are the signature flower of Westford and you are welcome to walk through our orchard during bloom.  Keep your eye on our website (www.drewfarm.com) and facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/DrewFarm?sk=wall) for dates.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

It was a great Pumpkin Light at Drew Farm!  We want to thank all that came out and a special thank you to all that carved and helped with the event-we couldn't do it without you!  

We are thankful for a great year, in spite of the frigid temperatures in April.  We are looking forward to a great pruning season and we hope to see everyone next fall!

ITS HALLOWEEN! THE PUMPKIN LIGHT WILL BE MONDAY, HALLOWEEN NIGHT!

This weekend will mark the close of our 2016 season at Drew Farm.  Although there is no more apple picking, we will still provide free tractor rides through the orchard so that you and your family can view the beautiful fall foliage.  The fire pit will also be roaring, if you would like to roast your own s'mores one last time in our picnic area.  Our retail area will be abuzz with activity this weekend!  Lukies Fortune will be playing for our retail customers and pumpkin carvers on Saturday.  We still have TONS of pumpkins left for you to choose from, as well as fresh apple cider donuts, cider and Drew Farm root beer. 

Our annual Drew Farm Pumpkin Light will be Halloween night. 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.
