Every weekend this month there’s a Fall Festival at this family-owned and operated apple orchard from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pick pumpkins in the pumpkin patch then try the bouncy house, pony rides, face painting and hayrides. The farm store offers fresh eggs, milk, produce and of course their homemade apple cider donuts. Every weekend grown-ups can sample the Hardscrabble Cider!
130 Hardscrabble Road North Salem
Be sure to check out the, not one – but three, farm markets here where you can purchase homemade pressed apple cider (they use five varieties of apples to get the taste just right), fresh baked pies, gift items and their famous apple cider donuts. The markets are open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. You can even arrange to have a birthday party at the farm!

At Stuart’s Fruit Farm, a family-operated farm that has been in operation since 1828, you can pick your own pumpkin right off the vine! On weekends try the tractor-drawn hayride that takes visitors up a hill to beautiful scenic views. Stop by the farm stand and bakery because that’s where you’ll find the apple cider donuts and a wide variety of produce. The farm stand is open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. until December 24th.

And there’s a pumpkin waiting for you in their pumpkin patch. Open seven days a week 8:30 a.m to 5:30 p.m.
