With fall comes football, sweatshirts, colorful leaves, and a favorite activity of couples – apple picking! Unfortunately there aren’t a ton of options for good apple picking on the south shore near SouthField. We wanted to put together a guide of local orchards that offer “pick-your-own apples”.
CN Smith Farm
325 South St, East Bridgewater, MA, 02333
We did say there aren’t a “ton” of options, that doesn’t mean there aren’t any! CN Smith in East Bridgewater is the South Shore’s top destination for those looking to apple pick. All you have to do is turn left out of Trotter Road onto Route 18 south for just 12 miles into East Bridgewater.
Belkin Family Lookout Farm
89 Pleasant St, Natick, MA, 01760
One of the oldest continuously working farms in the United States, Belkin is a great destination to pick your own peaches, apples, and pumpkins in the fall. Looking to make a day out of it? Great shopping destinations at the Natick Mall are a short drive from the farm.
2 Hunt Rd, Westford, MA, 01886
Located off I-495 in Westford, Hill orchard has a great variety of fruits, vegetables, pies, donuts, and cider for sale in addition to the apple picking. They even offer free haywagon rides on weekends!
Russell Orchards & Winery
143 Argilla Rd, Ipswich, MA, 01938
A north shore favorite, Russell Orchards makes for a great day trip to the seaside town of Ipswich. Just another mile down the road on Argilla Rd is Crane Beach, voted the best beach in Massachusetts by the Boston Globe over the last few years
