Welcome to our farm! We offer pick your own fruit and an assortment of vegetables at our farm stand throughout the season. Our produce is certified organic by Baystate Organic Certifiers.
On the farm we have a beautiful art studio overlooking the pond. In addition to offering art classes with some of the area's accomplished artists, we have Open Studio to accompany our Outdoor Sculpture Walk on weekends in the Fall as well as our Apple Blossom Open Studio in the Spring as well as workshosp throughout the year.
Community is so important to us. It's why we do what we do. The small farm movement is growing and we are honored to be a part of it. And it doesn't happen without you! We offer many reasons to visit, whether it's to buy or pick fresh, organic food; learn about our nutrient dense soil practices; enjoy a bird or nature walk; take an art class or spend the afternoon listening to African drummers. Our farm is for sharing and we hope to see you soon.
Apple Picking: A Note of Apology
If you've come to this page seeking updates about our Pick-Your-Own organic apples, we are sorry to say that that our trees have fallen into biennial production and we do not have enough fruit to offer pick your own apples. WHY? In 2012 freezing temperatures destroyed the apple blossoms and we had no fruit. Last year we had a bumper crop! The trees then naturally fell into biennial production. Commercial orchards spray to thin the trees and keep a consistent yield year to year. As an organic orchard, we hand thin the crop, and we find when the trees have such a large crop it is next to impossible to thin enough during mid June to influence the following year's buds. The trees are resting and we expect to have a healthy 2015 harvest. We hope you will support the farm in other ways.
Old Frog Pond Farm is one of the only a pick your own certified organic orchards in Massachusetts. Located in Harvard, MA, the farm is open for pick your own apples and raspberries late August to Columbus Day.
