Some of the Day Tripper Divas’ favorite places to pick-your-own, choose from farmstand, or just enjoy the harvest season are Berlin Orchards, Brooksby Farms, Charmingfare Farm, Chip-In Farm, Codman Farm, Drumlin Farm, Land’s Sake Farm (organic), Honey Pot Hill (best on weekdays to avoid crowds), Marino’s Lookout Farm, Nashoba Valley Winery, Old Frog Pond Farm (organic), Shelburne Farms, and Stonyfield Farm (see pages 22-24 of The Compleat Day Tripper for reviews). Keep in mind that Nashoba Valley Winery hosts a visit from Santa on a horse-drawn carriage in mid-December.

Since the season for crops like peaches, raspberries, pumpkins and apples varies from year to year, depending on the weather, it’s a good idea to call ahead to the farm you want to visit to check on picking conditions.
