It's close and has a good playground. Those are about the only positives. It is WAY overpriced and overcrowded. The staff are not friendly. They are focused on taking your money. You park, they shuffle you to the train, they dump you in the orchard, which is pretty. You can get good pictures if no one else is around, but... More

Located in Sherborn this farm is a nice quick trip for apples and gelato. Grocery is great with tons of options. Apples are all on small trees and there is a tractor ride to get to them which the kids love. A bit pricey but the apples are worth it!

Stopped here on a Saturday afternoon while we were out for fall activities. This taproom is lovely. It's a new facility with rustic nuances and chill vibe. There are four ciders on tap so I opted for a flight to try them all. Yum! They also have food (flatbreads, pretzels, salads and apple cider donuts). This was the perfect stop... More

The farm is beautiful. There is a cider house brewery that we were there to celebrate a friends birthday. The place was very busy and long lines to get drinks. I would have given five stars but the staff seemed unprepared to be busy on a beautiful fall day.

This is certainly different from apple picking in England! This is a business! We visited on Columbus weekend so therefore quite busy! A train is provided to get you to the picking areas and also to the playground. The playground is good for most ages and includes a few farm animals and for an extra payment you can have a... More

Nothing works up a thirst quite like a day of apple-picking, amirite? After spending an afternoon at Lookout Farm - getting lost in the orchards, riding the train around and around, and picking (alright mostly eating) our fair share of apples and pears - we were ready to find a nice spot to sit and some nice bevies to sip....

It was a perfect fall day and why not visit a local well farm to get some local farm product. The store doesn't have much local foods. Yes, there's plenty of apple cider, donuts, pies, and jam. But where are all the fresh local farm products? Then there is the crowd with lines everywhere and grumpy parents. Luckily there's no... More
