As a small family farm located in the center of Belchertown, we focus primarily on apples. Blueberries, plums, pears, herbs, maple syrup, and honey help to round out our offerings. IPM, low spray, and no spray are practiced on our various crops. Pick your own apples starting in September. Belchertown Farmers Market starting mid June. Educational programs available upon request.

Peach update

There are no peaches for harvest in Massachusetts this year — an unfortunate casualty of increasingly variable weather fueled by climate change. We are keeping the guide updated with information about other fruit that is available, along with farms that are sourcing peaches from other parts of the region.
