Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Boston and surrounding counties in Massachusetts? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Boston and surrounding counties in Massachusetts, sorted by county. Those that offer organic or sustainably grown produce are identified by the words "organic" and/or "sustainable" in Green, next to their name  (see "What does Organic mean?"). The U-pick crops they offer follow the name of the farm. To search the page for a specific crop, use Ctrl-F (or on an ipad or Mac, use their "search on this page" function) If they have a website, the name will be in blue and underlined; click on it and it will open their website. If you find anything outdated or inaccurate, see the customer and farmer menus (as appropriate) at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!

New! As inflation remains high, see this page for cost-saving measures for getting fruit and vegetables and home canning.

New! Road tripping and camping is a great way to have a fun, safe and inexpensive family trip. The national and state parks and monuments are open, and campgrounds usually cost between $10 and $40 per night. September to November is the best camping weather.  See our new website Road Tripping and for tips, tricks, guides, checklists and info about parks, monuments and other places to visit.

New! We just went live with our latest website, - As they name implies, you can find a fun factory tour, including chocolate, automobiles, historical forts and sites, famous buildings, Active Federal facilities even fun geology: like fossils and volcanic areas

Note: Beware the copycat websites like the one that stole our name and uses .farm extension: they copied my work and do NOT even update the info! I make updates EVERY day. They use tech tricks to get higher rankings, but have many more inaccuracies and out-dated info. Obviously, I cannot check every farm every day, but I do check as many as I can every day, and respond to all requests.  They don't. Don't support the scammers!

Remember to always check with the farm's own website or Facebook page before you go - or call or email them if they don't have a website or Facebook page. Conditions at the farms and crops can change literally overnight, so if you want to avoid a wasted trip out there - check with the farm directly before you go! And if you know of any farms I missed and want to add a farm, please let me know!   I'm making updates for this year as fast as I can - if you find anything out-of-date, wrong or not working - please let me know!

I like it because they charge by the pound so we only get the amount we really want. I stop by often with my boys during the season so we always have fresh crisp apples. The trees are right behind the stand so its an easy walk. It also has a nice farm stand with a good variety of fresh fruit and vegetables. Super fresh corn is picked in the fields and delivered directly to the stand as it runs low. They often have bakery items also available. The people who own it also run the stand they are very nice and friendly. "

The apples were easy picking, since all the trees are dwarf trees, they were absolutely delicious, and the pumpkins were easy to pick out from the field. There was a hay ride for those who didn't want to walk, a playground she absolutely loved, animals to pet and look at, ice cream, and a bakery with home-made apple donuts. We had a good time!"

    Comments from a visitor on July 20, 2020: "Keep in mind, this is owned by the city government, so they are going overboard with the COVID paranoia outdoors. Worldwide there are no documented and verified cases of COVID transmission outdoors, so says the CDC. "
    Comments from a visitor on August 18, 2011: "We just visited Brooksby Farm to pick peaches this morning, August 18, 2011. There were a lot of peaches on the trees, but we had to look carefully to find many that were ripe. A 1/2 peck is $8.00. We weighed ours at home and it comes to about 6 1/4 lbs. Bags need to be purchased at the farm stand before entering the you-pick area."Cider Hill Amesbury

    Comments from a visitor on August 05, 2011: "I have taken my family there for about 6 years for apple picking and each year I look forward to going there. They care about the produce they grow first and foremost. The quality of their apples is always excellent and their fields are kept clean and orderly with markings so you can tell what varieties are in which rows. They also have a corn maze, chickens and goats for the kids to feed, and a tractor ride out to the fields. They have a little bakery in a barn that makes and sells different baked goods but try their cinnamon-sugar cider donuts. They are delicious! The only negative I could say is that if you don't go early for the apples you have to hike up the hill and it is steep."
    Comments from a visitor on July 19, 2011: "My boyfriend and I went to Cider Hill Farm this past weekend, and found it as charming and fun and welcoming as our first time last year. The red and black raspberry picking was fantastic, the shop had many tasty treats, and the staff was wonderfully helpful. You pick on the honor system - no one is hovering to make sure you're not sampling. We even enjoyed some refreshing beverages and farm-made treats (cider donuts and strawberry-chocolate muffins - YUUMMMM!!!) in their picnic area before leaving. We intend to return very soon to get more blueberries! We love Cider Hill Farm so much, we decided to come back to this website to give them a good review! ;-)"
    Comments from a visitor on August 06, 2009: "They do both PYO and harvest for others to sell in their barn/store. Peaches, berries, apples.... most of the rest is harvested and sold in the store. Excellent place. They have a great old donut maker and make the BEST fresh donuts; their apple cider is awesome; a bee hive that kids can look at (behind plexiglass with a tube that funnels to the outside. Pretty cool. In the past few years they have installed 3 windmills and solar panels. Re. organic... I know they spray the berries pre-blossom but not after. Wish they offer more organic. They have a big chicken yard (.50 will buy your child a little cup of chicken feed) and a couple of goats. It's a beautiful place offering some plants in the spring and a great barn seasonally full of all sorts of things. "
    Comments from a visitor on August 28, 2008: "I've been taking my son here for about 10 years and every year is better. Apple picking at the base of the hill for those who can't climb or don't want to take the hayride up. They continually add more types of fresh produce they sell in their store. There are animals and play area for the kids. We've moved about 45 minutes away and still drive to Cider Hill. No one will ever beat their hot cider donuts!"

    Comments from a visitor on September 05, 2011: (negative) "We wanted an end of summer farm day and, based on what is in season, looked for a farm with pick your own raspberries AND peaches. Connors farm in Danvers fit the bill so we headed there. We had to pre-pay for a peach peck bag while the raspberries were to be weighed and paid for afterwrds. And I had to sign a waiver saying I had been warned there were bees at the back of the peach orchard. The girl that helped me told me both were out back behind the pond nad there would be signs. Well, there were no signs at all and only one other group picking peaches. Almost none of the peaches were ripe and if we hadn't pre-paid for the bag, we probably would have left sooner. We willed our bag with the ripest we could find/reach but there were not only bees (they KEEP bees behind the field), but, more annoying, mosquitos everywhere despite it being midday and sunny. Perhaps this is related to the pond which appeared to be completely still. My 6 year old daughter got it worst - she has more than a dozen bites"
    Comments from a visitor on September 27, 2009: (negative) "On 9/26/09, my family & I decided to go apple picking. I wanted some place different. I went on this website and chose Connor's farm in Danvers, MA. It was a beautiful day and I expected it to be busy. If you were there for the corn maize or the family toddler section then it would of been fine. We were there to pick apples. We found the apple tree's by a small sign. There were no markings to say which tree's for which apples. There was no one working out in the fields so we could ask questions. I found the orchard was neglected. Vines and weeds and such were growing over and around the very small trees, sunlight couldn't even get into the apples to ripen. I wanted to leave and get my money back for the pre-paid bag purchase. We were there so, we filled the bag with what we could gather that were worthy apples. I came home and made apple sauce with them. Not worth eating. Next time I will stick to the farms without all the stuff, and good healthy apple tree's for the picking. Brenda C."

They had a TON of apples (many different varieties and LOTS of trees. There isn't much besides the actual orchard, but they do have a tractor (actually more like a loader) that can pull you around and my daughter loved that. If you're looking simply for picking good apples, this is a perfect place to go. And prices were reasonable too. They also have a stand that sells lots of goodies but that is up the road and across Route 27 - Don't miss it! We got a great looking pumpkin from there and a couple of fantastic pies. I definitely recommend Dowse Orchards!"

    Comments from a visitor on June 04, 2010: "Yesterday, June 3, 2010, my boyfriend and I went to pick strawberries at the Hanson's Farm in Framingham, MA. We called about a dozen local places and most were not having pick-your-own strawberries until the weekend or the middle of the month. Hanson's Farm is a very small operation and I would not suggest it for big groups. The field was very small. I could not see more than 8 people picking from that field to get a large amount of berries. The berries were good. The cost was $2 per person, and $2.50 per pound. They also had a large selection of flowers and herbs to buy. Pre-picked strawberry quarts were $6. They also supplied containers. We had a decent experience but would probably try someplace else next time."
    Comments from a visitor on August 16, 2009: "Hi, Thanks for putting together such an extensive and useful resource! We called Hanson's farm this morning and were told by the young woman at the farm stand that they were picking blueberries and raspberries. Well, when we arrived shortly after that, she told us there were none to be had. We went out to verify. It is a very small operation; I don't think a rush of pickers was the problem, just a lack of information. I wouldn't recommend this farm for their pick your own based on our experience. Maybe their farm stand is good, but we didn't feel like spending any money there."

    A visitor writes on October 12, 2013: "We visited this farm today and it was great! We parked at the small farm house on Hunt Road and walked with our wagon to the apple orchard. There were lots of varieties of apples to choose from and the people there were friendly. My kids were offered a hay ride even though we were the only ones around right then. We also picked out some pumpkins after. Everything was reasonably priced and we will definitely be coming back!"
    Comments from a visitor on September 08, 2012: "We went here on a whim. We usually drive 45 minutes to Russell Orchards, but we were low on time and good weather and looking for a closer place that used IPM practices. This will be a new favorite. Very small and friendly, easily accessible for a toddler and kindergartener, and great apples. Thanks for listing them, we live 20 minutes away and had never heard of them! "

    Comments from a visitor on September 19, 2011: "We went on 9/18/11 and had a blast! I read the reviews about it being busy and it certainly was once we got into the orchard it wasn't too bad. Lots of activities to do and tons of apples to choose from."
    Comments from a visitor on August 13, 2011: "I went to Honeypot Hill Orchards in Stow on 8/6/11 for Blueberry picking. It was great picking. They give you nice little covers to put on the boxes when you finish so you don't loose those precious berries. I bought their own peaches..very good. Farm animals are fun to watch..especially the 3 little pigs and the goats!".
    Comments from a visitor on October 03, 2010:
    "Today (a Sunday!) there were 5 busloads of people and all the parking lots were overflowing. It was a frustrating, NOT relaxing experience! The trees were literally picked out in the open sections and they refused to open new areas even though the trees there were brimming with ripe apples. We left with half-empty $15 bags of apples. The lines for cider and donuts were 1/2 hour long. The place was bursting with people and no apples. "
    A visitor to Honey Pot Orchard writes on October 7, 2007:
    "Went on Sunday, October 7, 2007... The BEST place to pick apples, they already have ladders, so you don't have to climb the trees, they had SOOOOOOO many apples to choose from it wasn't funny... You didn't have to go looking, they were all right there for you.... Would HIGHLY recommend it, it is by far my best place to pick apples, and my NEW PLACE, would not go anyplace else....."
    Comments from a visitor on August 05, 2008: "Hi....Just took my 3 boys to honey pot today to pick blueberries. It was wonderful. We picked to our delight and then enjoyed AWESOME cider doughnuts from their store on the way home. We've also been there for apple picking last fall and plan on going again this year. However, I think an important note to add is to let people know that they need to carry cash, as they don't accept any credit/debit cards. Thanks!"

  • Kidstopia Blueberry Farm - No pesticides used, blueberries
    46 Western Avenue, Sherborn, MA. Open: every day from early July until the season is over (late August?).
    A visitor writes on August 03, 2014:
    "We went to this blueberry patch this afternoon- there aren't a whole lot of ripe berries, but we still picked over 2lbs (at $4/lb). It was self-serve/pay (cash or check) and well supplied with containers for picking and bags for taking berries home. The rows were fairly overgrown and there were signs up warning of poison ivy. There were low/wet sections, so wear long pants and closed toed shoes. They do allow kids, but no pets."
    A visitor writes on August 04, 2013:
    "It is definitely open at present (every day), and blueberries are $3/lb. We easily picked 6 pounds each in about an hour or so."
    A visitor writes on July 22, 2013: "Went today for the first time with my two children. Owner was there, super friendly and helpful in pointing us in the right direction. Field 1 appears mostly picked over, however Field 2 filled with berries. They claim no spray used. Had plenty of containers to use and dump into bags before you weigh, Price per pound is $3. You weigh your own and pay on your honor. Ice cold water bottles to purchase for $.75 and local honey sold for $10 for a large bottle. Very rustic with no frills, but I will definitely return for the huge sweet berries and the friendly owner who didn't blink an eye at 2 kids ages 4 and 5 picking in his fields like many places do."
    Comments from a visitor on October 03, 2010: "This farm has changed owners. Prices in 2010 were $2.00/pint. It is semi-honor system - the owner followed us around the fields and into the weighing area. He also told us stories about people stealing from him, going into closed areas, etc even though we didn't engage him in conversation. There's still lots of berries whenever you go, but the feel (and prices) have changed."
    Comments from a visitor on August 10, 2009: "We went there last weekend (Aug 9). There are a lot of ripe berries. We picked over 10 pounds with 2 people in about an hour. There are still a lot of green berries as well, so I think it hasn't reached the peak yet. Price is 1.50/lb."
    Comments from a visitor on July 11, 2009: "Went by this place today. They still go by the honor system, though price per lb is now $1.50. They provide buckets which are marked and make it easy to tell what you have. Its ok to taste the berries, they don't have an issue with that (I do it to tell if I want to bother picking that bush or not) but you may want to leave the heavy eating for when you're at home. The bushes are quite heavy with unripe fruit right now, but given how lovely the Summer has been in this area, totally understandable. The ripe berries are a bit tart right now, so we're hoping by next week they will be just right. Also, they do ask that you please leave your pets in the car or better yet, leave them at home. Totally understandable given the amount of natural wild life around there. The turkey's from last year haven't made an appearance. They may we hope!. Human families are welcome. I walked around quite abit, no poison ivy that I could see but they do make an effort to get rid of it when they can. I didn't see any wasps nests but I did see a lot of them flying about. The ground is very wet so you may want to bring some waterproof shoes."

    Comments from a visitor on June 12, 2011: "The farm seems to keep their u-pick updated daily. First weekend in June '11 open for strawberry u-pick. It is an enjoyable field to pick, not very manicured, and run like a farm not an event maker. No one is monitoring the pickers at all. I picked last year too, and enjoyed, although I was happy to have picked before the school buses rolled up. Prices 6/11 are $4/lb plus a fee for the container, $1.50 for quart or $2 for box. CC accepted. Checkout rounded down my weight. (THANK YOU) An easy-going place that didn't say word one to my kids sticking their hands in to feed the goats, and kindly kept my wallet at the stand. Thanks for the website, it is fabulous. "
    Comments from a visitor on July 01, 2016: "There is also a great store and a little stand where you can buy all sorts of apple related goodies! We live in the area and have tried all the farms locally, and they make the best donuts by far. They also have cooked/frozen pies, cookies, lunch things, hot dogs, fudge and a bunch more. There are restrooms and a bunch of picnic tables spread out all over the farm. It's a beautiful place, with lots of happy families and a wicked friendly staff. It seems like it's mainly run by a younger staff, but the girl who is in charge is always there and ready to answer all questions and help customers with anything. My son touched a wheel of a tractor last year and got mud all over him. She took us back into the kitchen, washed him off, and gave him a chocolate pop shaped like an apple! She also told my wife that they practice IPM, which I guess means they use good bugs to fight bag bugs. There are also hay rides, pony rides, a moon bounce, a hay maze/mountain and an area for kids to ride around on small tractors. They accept credit cards!"
