Our Cidery pours our very own Hard Cider in traditional and seasonal flavors, as well as non-alcoholic drink options, from Memorial Day weekend through the end of the fall PYO season.  An adjacent deck and Grotto area below allow you to enjoy your cold pint while enjoying the farm’s natural beauty.

Off-season, you can pick up a growler or a 4-pack of cans from the farm store.

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, sunflowers, squash, decorative 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.

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.

A Fall Snowfall

So is it currently winter or fall? Days like yesterday make it hard to tell. Boston saw nearly 5 inches of snow, shattering the previous October record of less than an inch in a day. It isn’t the first time we’ve seen snow in October, though. Here’s proof: a photo of our staff harvesting apples wearing snow boots, circa that historic winter of 2011. Between the snow yesterday, and the end of daylight savings time tomorrow, we’re all going to … Keep Reading
