A FALL TRADITION
Do you remember the first time you picked your own apples with your family? The crunch of a sweet apple fresh off the tree in a beautiful orchard with crisp air and a stunning blue sky.. Make new memories each fall & feed your inner child at Hill Orchard. This is not a circus-like farm experience, this is a real farm experience. You will not find busses of people and carnival rides, you will find trees, grass, a tractor-drawn hay wagon ride and delicious apples.
As we grow 25 varieties of apples, there is plenty to choose from. We have apples to suit every flavor or use perfectly. We do also have large blocks of the old favorites like Mac, Cortland, Empire, Gala, & Macoun.
The first Pick Your Own Apple Weekend of 2013 will be Labor Day weekend!
Saturday, August 31st – Monday, September 2nd from 10am – 4pm
They will continue each Saturday and Sunday from 10am – 4pm each weekend until mid / late October (depending on the crop).
When visiting our farm:
- You purchase our bags to pick into, so you may fill them with as many apples of any variety that you can carry. It pays to pick a lot at once!
- Cash only in the orchard please, or there is a credit card machine in the farm stand around the corner.
- Farmer Levick runs hayrides throughout the orchard every weekend – so take a break from picking and take the family for a ride!
- There is real hay on the tractor-driven hay wagon, which can be itchy if kids (or adults) are wearing shorts.
- Bring solid foot ware, outdoor clothes and if it is hot, bring hats or sunscreen for kids.
- We have picnic tables in a designated area, but you may not bring coolers, backpacks or strollers into the orchard itself.
- We have drinks and snacks for sale in the orchard, and a variety of vegetables, breads, pies, our own jams and other local items in the farm stand across the street.
- Parking for pick your own customers is in the orchard, but our bathrooms are at the farm stand across the street.
- Please supervise your children at all times, especially if crossing Chamberlain Rd or riding in the wagon.
- While you may climb trees in your own back yard, DO NOT climb the apple trees or throw apples on this farm. This is not only for your safety, but to protect our crop and livelihood! Climbers and fruit-slingers will be asked to leave immediately.
- We welcome family reunions, school trips and large groups. For groups over 20 people, or groups with mobility issues, please call ahead to book a time so we can plan to accommodate you. (978) 692 9894
- We welcome you to make your own memories on this lovely farm!
