Take a Trip to Simpler Times
Escape to a Quintessential New England Farm to Start Making Memories & Traditions That Will Last a Lifetime.
There’s plenty to see, taste and do at Red Apple Farm. Join us for guaranteed family fun! Admission and parking are free.
Make sure to visit our Country Store at the farm! It’s chock full of country goodness and step-back-in-time charm! In addition to apples and seasonal fruit we feature all our favorite farm-fresh treats: fresh baked pies, our famous apple dumplings and cider donuts, cold and hot cider, fruit-topped ice cream, fresh fudge, an endless assortment of jar goods, locally-made gifts, and a whole lot more! Our farm stand might have grown over the years but at its core it’s still the same place!
The store is open daily, year round, though what we offer changes throughout the year based on the seasons. We make our own apple cider in-house, which is available unpasteurized in-season and pasteurized year-round. We started making our own HARD cider in 2019 and sell that in the store as well.
We make our apple cider donuts and homemade fudge year-round too. There’s always something new to discover from our selection of neat local products. Go to the Country Store page to learn more about what we make and sell.
Come on down, or shop online (for curbside pickup or shipping)!
We’ve collaborated with our friends and neighbors at Moon Hill Brewing Co. to open the Brew Barn. Every weekend summer through fall, our post and beam Country Barn is transformed into an outdoor brewery tap “room,” serving up local brews, fresh roasted nuts, barbecue, and popped-on-the-spot popcorn along with your farm favorites. Make sure to try our new Red Apple Farm Hard Cider!
The Brew Barn is family friendly and fun rain or shine thanks to the expansive barn! If the weather permits there’s plenty of outdoor space on the deck and around the barn as well.
2020 Update: The Brew Barn is OPEN for outdoor dining only, weather dependent. Table service is required and seating is first-come-first-served. Call-ahead seating available if you prefer! 978-895-9658. See Brew Barn page for up-to-date hours.
Come to the farm to pick-your-own blueberries, raspberries, apples, pumpkins, sunflowers, and even potatoes! It’s an essential New England experience. Connect with nature, spend quality time with your friends or family, and enjoy the taste of freshly picked fruit.
Plan your next escape! Check the approximate harvest dates page to get an idea of what to expect, but always call the farm for accurate picking conditions. There are many factors that affect pick-your-own conditions on a daily basis.
2020 Update: We are using a reservation system for all pick-your-own this year. Visit the PYO Fruit page to learn more and schedule your visit!
Wagon rides are a part of the whole farm experience. Hop on and hold on – it’s a bumpy ride around the orchard! Our wagon rides are driven by Red Apple Farm team members who know the in’s and out’s of the farm. You’ll get to see the total expanse of the orchard on both sides of Highland Ave, and you’ll stop several times along the way to look up close at different features. Take in the sights and also gain some knowledge!
Our farm animals are lovable and excited to meet you! In our petting area there’s Zeus the cow, several goats, and sometimes pigs and sheep too. We even have some chickens roaming freely around the farm and baby bunnies most years.
All are welcome to socialize with the animals through the fence, and you can even buy a cup of animal feed in the Country Store if you’d like to try feeding them.
Serving up barbecue fresh off the grill on the weekends in-season (June through October, but call or check Facebook for updates). Try our famous BBQ Burger or opt for a salad.
Order at the counter, or have your food brought out to you at the Brew Barn for uninterrupted enjoyment.
2020 Update: BBQ (temporarily) for table service ONLY during Brew Barn hours. No reservation required, but if you want to make one you can call 978-895-9658.
There are some beautiful walking trails hidden around the orchard – in open fields and in pockets of forested land on our property. Ask us for a guide and enjoy some time exploring nature! The following video was created by Paul Rezendes, featuring “1000 Acre Swamp,” a hidden gem behind Red Apple Farm.

Paul has now incorporated drones into his work, producing videos and still photographs. He is an FAA-licensed drone pilot who offers his services for both editorial and commercial purposes. When not traveling by all-wheel drive van, Paul lives with his wife in a remote forest on the Millers River in Athol, Massachusetts.
We host several annual fairs and festivals throughout the summer and fall seasons! From the Blueberry Jamboree all the way through the Thanksgiving Harvest Festival and Country Roads Christmas Fair.
Update for 2020: We will not be moving forward with any large gatherings at the farm until it is safe again to do so. We thank you so much for understanding! We will get through this and can’t wait until we can all gather again at the farm when the time comes. Check back for updates as we move from summer to fall.
