We are extremely lucky in Greater Newburyport in many ways, but especially to have wonderful local farms a stone throw away from this area.
Top contenders include Cider Hill in Amesbury, Russell Orchard in Ipswich, and Tendercrop in Newbury (also Wenham and Dover, NH.)
Apple picking, as wells a seasonal berry picking, is always a fun and healthy activity for adults, children, and the young of heart to be found at all ages 2 to 102.
It is also so easy to pick up a delicious apple or blueberry pie for birthdays, tailgate, or holiday parties. Take a long afternoon to explore the farms, and enjoy the tasty and wholesome fun to be had by all.
