Parlee Farm in Tyngsboro makes a nice family trip, suggests Mary Gilbert of the Busa Farm CSA and farm stand in Lexington. In addition to their pick-your-own strawberries and other fruits, Parlee has a baby animal petting zoo, “Annie’s Goats in the Trees,” and Mary’s Country Kitchen with desserts and ice cream. The Day Tripper Divas request that if you go to Parlee, please report back whether the ice cream is also locally made. Parlee Farm’s website contains a good map and lots more information. – From the Busa Farm CSA Newsletter, June 18.

This is the farm that we go to in the fall for our annual apple picking outing. It is wonderful!!! Free hayride to and from the field for apple and pumpkin picking. In the fall there are gorgeous pick your own flowers. They also have a hay maze the kids can play on, as well as feeding the animals (sometimes however the feed bins run out of food later in the day) – bring lots of quarters if your kids really are into this. They have chickens, goats, bunnies, etc. The food from the kitchen always smells wonderful (sometimes we get there too late and they have run out of a certain food, so if you are interested – get the food before you go to the field).I definately would recommend.

Chose Parlee to renew our annual strawberry picking tradition for the first time since having kids. We had a great time at the petting zoo (goats in trees!) and the fields were perfect. Plenty of ripe berries to be had.I did check on the ice cream as well. I was pretty sure it was Richardsn’s from the flavors: Moose Tracks and Maine Black Bear gave it away. I asked the server and it is in fact Richardson’s.
