Pick Your Own Farms

Here are some places we've gone pick fruit recently:

Ingaldsby Farm, West Boxford. Went in 2018 and 2022 for strawberries. Great berries in 2018, good in 2020. Playground and farm animals.

Boston Hill farm, North Andover. Went in 2021 for strawberries. Great playground, berries were ok.

Wards Berry Farm, Sharon. Went in 2021 for blueberries. Good berries, good playground, lots of animals.

Carlson Orchards, Harvard. Went in 2020 and 2021 for peaches and 2020 for blueberries. Excellent peaches, as long as you get the New Havens, pick them by smell, and let them ripen for about a day. Blueberries were good too. No playground.

Brooksby Farm. Peabody. Went in 2016 and 2020 for apples. I think it was good? Don't remember much.

Honeypot, Stow. Several visits for apples, including 2018 and 2019 because our Au Pair program hosted mandatory meetups there. Ok, but incredibly crowded during apple season. One time we went there for blueberries, which was much better.
