This farm is about an hour drive from Brighton, MA. My wife and I went there this weekend and the place was crowded. We got some hit cider, apple donuts and hot dogs (some of their items like Mac and cheese were sold out by the time we got there which was 2pm). We also visited the barn before heading... More

My children and I got to the farm about 30 minutes before it opened and waited in line to pay for apple picking. The place started to crowd up very quickly and when it came time for apple picking to open people decided that they were special and and it didn't matter that they hadn't waited in line for the...

I have written many reviews, but none as heartfelt as this one. I have been visiting Tougas Family Farm for over 30 years. It was my favorite fall activity as a little girl - and is the primary reason I love apple picking to this day. It was a special time for my Dad and I to go there early... More

This is a great place to make family memories also a great place for fruit picking lots to do. They also have staff members through out the fields who educate you on the many different apples and fruits for the picking seasons. Lots of things for kids like a petting zoo swings and many different areas for playing. The store... More

We visited for the first time today. The farm opened at 10am. We got there at 10:20 and it parking lot was already full so tip #1 get there just before it opens so you can enjoy minutes before the crowds roll in. APPLE PICKING: To go apple picking you pre-pay for a bag ($28 for a small bag I... More

We have been going to Tougas Farm for over 20 years. The place keeps getting better and better. We have always gone first thing in the morning and never experience the extreme busy time. Yesterday we went later than usual. We started off by having to crawl up Ball Street behind other people with the same idea of enjoy the... More

While the farm itself looks nice, there was terrible traffic into and out of farm. Lines to pick your own apples were outrageously long as were lines for cider donuts and country store. One of the workers said it is always this crowded. Crowds completely ruined the experience. It's a shame. We will not be back to Tougas. Better farm... More

Johnny Appleseed ,We thank you. After picking a couple bags of apples, we stopped by the bakery & sampled app,e dumplings. Yumm! What a treat,the aromas wafting through the air would attract many more puckers from the apple grove. We chose to relax outside & watch young couples with small children enjoying the farm animals. Very enjoyable outing.

You can go every month from late spring to fall and pick strawberries, cherries, blueberries, blackberries, peaches, nectarines, apples and pumpkins in that order as they each mature. Tractor-pulled wagons transport you to the picking spot of the day. I go as often as I can.

We went to try something different but we will not go back. Their hayride is not a hayride more like a shuttle wagon. The place feels so sterile. Its just tiny trees in perfect rows, people crammed in picking over priced apples. The apples are very small and tasteless. Their donuts taste like Big Y donuts placed in bags. The... More
