Nice place to bring the kids or just to check out yourself. They have a small zoo on the property and a bakery. In the fall you can pick your own apples and other fruits and vegetables. They also sell fresh items in season. Plenty of parking. Very crowded on the fall weekends. Hayrides, ect.

We live in town and visit Smolak's Farm quite frequently. Their fresh-from-the-fryer Apple Cider Doughnuts are fantastic! In warm weather, we love having S'more's flavor ice cream while watching the sunset over the farmland. Absolutely wonderful!

I visit Smolak Farms every fall for apple picking. They have a little shop, their donuts are good and their ice cream is also good. They also have a lot of deer and other animals in the back.

This place has the farm experience nailed. Great u-pick options, delicious pies and coffees and sandwiches, beautiful setting and super friendly staff. It is an absolute institution. Whenever I visit friends, I pack a couple of pies in the car and they are immediately devoured. Great spot for families, too.

I went apple picking on Oct 20. There were still plenty of apples! The staff was super friendly and nice. The farm was easy to find and not crowded on a Thursday. Gorgeous way to spend the morning or afternoon. I also went raspberry picking! They were so fresh and inexpensive. The farm is close to Boston. It only took... More

Smolak is great any time of year, but they really outdo themselves for the Fall Festivals, and this year is no different. The Alice in Wonderland theme is adorable, and even my very little ones (2 & 4) got into the story on the hayride. The apple cider doughnuts are so SO good, and they had plenty of apples still...
