All of the apples are really fresh and crisp, especially the Honey Crisps. And grab some apple cider doughnuts for the ride home.

We went hoping to pick apples but the hayride out to the fields + cost of the bag + cost of apples themselves just wasn't worth it. We did go on the hayride out around the fields and had a good time. It seems like there were less animals out than in past years, but it was also very crowed... More

I've been going to Russell Orchards since the days when it was known as Goodale Orchard. It's a fantastic apple farm, with a real American farm-stand feel, that keeps getting better with age. You can pick-your-own in the fall, or just pick your apples out of their generous bins -- that have the fresh-picked smell of fresh apples. They press... More

We stopped here on the way to Castle Hill, and remind all this is a smart thing to do if you are going there or to Crane's Beach. What a fun time! Stop here to see a magnificent reuse of a wonderful old barn. If you do nothing else!!!!! We had the warm mulled cider, sat near the fire in... More

What a fun experience! I wanted to do some apple picking while in New England and picked Russell Orchards based on their reviews and what they had to offer. For the price, it is a really great deal. We enjoyed picking about a half bag full- they were the most delicious apples I've ever had. There was a man in... More

Out for a drive on a nice Sunday afternoon and we stop in. Talked to the wine person and bought a bottle. Also picked up a great pie, a few cider donuts and some apples. Worth the stop, glad we went and it was not too crowded now that pick your own is over.

What a great destination on a crisp fall day! Plenty of free parking. Relax, unwind, and stroll around the grounds and then check out the delightful store. It's loaded with fresh fruit and vegetables, jams, souvenirs, plaques, decorative items, and much more. There's even a wine tasting bar! So glad we visited!

We were visiting from Texas and decided to make a stop here late one afternoon. We are so glad we did. The trees on the farm were beautiful colors, there were plenty of pumpkins and farm animals to visit. But the best part was the shop and their fresh apple cider. I have never in my life had cider that... More

This was a nice fall photo stop, with lots of pumpkins and beautifully turning trees. The store is full of tempting foods and souvenirs, and we enjoyed visiting the farm animals.
