Red Apple Farm is a fourth generation family farm located in Phillipston, MA.

Situated right off scenic Route 2 in the heart of North Central Massachusetts, the orchard boasts views of Wachusett Mountain and sprawling fields outlined by untouched forests. Every year our fruit is grown using Integrated Pest Management with conscious thought to people and the environment. Visit the farm, pick your own fruit, stop in to the Country Store for locally produced specialty foods, and don’t leave without trying our famous cider donuts and homemade fudge.

Red Apple Farm is truly a place to connect the past and today!  Our farmhouse and barn were built in the mid-1700’s. The encompassing stonewalls and stately maple trees represent the icons of days gone by and a labor of love that is still found today in the farm’s breath-taking atmosphere and true sense-of-place.

There’s plenty to see, taste and do at Red Apple Farm.

We grow over 50 varieties of apples in addition to peaches, pears, blueberries, raspberries, pumpkins, gourds, squash, corn, and potatoes. Our 1,250 foot elevation helps us grow extra colorful, crisp, tangy apples!

A day spent at the farm guarantees good old fashioned family fun – a well deserved break from the stresses and demands of fast-paced life.

Seasonally, we offer pick-your-own fruit, educational wagon rides, lovable farm animals to feed, weekend barbecue, and classic farm fare like roasted nuts, hot cider donuts, fruit-topped ice cream, and caramel apples.

Our farm store is open year-round!

It’s chock full of country goodness and step-back-in-time charm. Our shelves are stocked with Red Apple Farm staples, locally-made gifts, Massachusetts maple syrup and honey, and an endless assortment of jarred goods. You’re sure to discover something new every time you visit.

Our latest addition is the Brew Barn: our post and beam rustic barn, transformed into a family-friendly weekend getaway.

Moon Hill Brewing Company beer, our own hard cider made on site, barbecue and more, all of which you can enjoy in the barn or on the deck overlooking the orchard.

Don’t miss our annual fairs and festivals at the farm. Fun for the whole family!

We also host group farm outings and private events in our Country Barn.

The Farm . . . in the City and on the Mountain.

Experience our authentic New England family farm, whether you’re in the country or in the city!  We’re proud to sell our farm’s products in two satellite locations in Massachusetts, each unique yet focused on our mission.

In the City

Come find us year-round in Boston! 

Since 2015, we’ve operated a stand inside the Boston Public Market, bringing the farm to the city.  We also participate in several seasonal outdoor markets in the Boston area.

On the Mountain

During ski season, you can find Red Apple Farm on Wachusett Mountain!

Stop into The Core at the base, or Bullock Lodge Cider House on the slope, to warm up with a cup of hot cider and an apple cider donut.

Eat the Decor

We’re now halfway through October, and pumpkins have taken their rightful seats on the front porches, kitchen tables, mantle places, and lawns of homes all over town. You’ve got your classic “Jack-o-Lantern” pumpkins, comparative giants next to “mini” pumpkins. Both are decorative cultivars whose sole missions in life are to breathe “fall charm” into the world. Their quirkiness, and in some cases downright ugliness (in the ugly-adorable sort of way), makes them endearing. So endearing, in fact, that every year, … Keep Reading

The Big Three

Google “Big Three Apples” if you want to read about rivalries between Apple, Microsoft, and Google. But here on the farm at least, “Big Three Apples” refers to our three most prized pick-your-own varieties: McIntosh, Cortland, and Macoun. If we’re lucky, for a couple magical weekends each year, these apples ripen simultaneously. This happens to be one of those magical weekends! These three apple varieties have more in common than their popularity and their harvest dates. Genetically, McIntosh is a … Keep Reading
