This weekend Drew Farm invites you to come out and enjoy the spirit of the fall season in our beautiful orchard to pick apples and pumpkins, and listen to live free music while you enjoy a freshly made picnic lunch and roast s'mores by our apple-wood, orchard side fire! The price of admission is simply purchasing apples or pumpkins.
The weather looks perfect - Indian Summer on Saturday - so take advantage and bring your family and friends out for wonderful fall day. Our orchard is peaceful (!) and scenic, with gorgeous views of the foliage. Our visitors are always free to wander the orchard at their own pace and enjoy the experience of apple picking in the traditional New England style. Here's what we have to offer:
APPLES: Now's the perfect time and we still have plenty of fresh crisp apples low on the trees for easy picking! McIntosh (look for apples that still have a bit of a green background), Cortland (excellent), Macoun (excellent), Empire (peak!), Golden Delicious (nearing perfect) and Red Delicious (just getting started).
PUMPKINS: WE HAVE TONS! Drew Farm professes to be the pumpkin capital of Massachusetts. We have pumpkins of all sizes and shapes. When you purchase your pumpkin(s) from us you are supporting our annual pumpkin light Halloween night (more details to come; keep an eye on our Facebook page as time nears for all the details (https://www.facebook.com/DrewFarm?sk=wall_). It is a free event that is out of this world!
MUSIC: Saturday we welcome back Mike and Ted; Sunday we welcome back Kevin and Paul. Both days will feature all your favorite light rock and folk music. The musicians are nestled in our picnic area and provide light entertainment while you enjoy your outing. We have plenty of picnic tables available on a first come first served basis. You are always welcome to bring your favorite picnic blanket if you prefer.
FOOD: It's your choice. You can bring your own picnic or you can purchase fresh hot BBQ from FireBox BBQ. They will be in the orchard with your favorite BBQ snacks from 11 am to 3 pm. Come on out and support them! We also offer s'mores kits (we supply all that you need) to roast an all time favorite. The kids (and adults) love it!
