Fall is officially upon us! Here at One Upland, we like to make the most of each season, and there are so many fun things to do this Fall right here in your own neighborhood! Check out these recommendations from your friends in the leasing office and enjoy New England at its finest.
An Apple a Day
Did you know that the average person can burn up to 200 calories in an hour of apple picking? That’s just enough to balance out the fresh-from-the-oven cider donut you’ll want to indulge in!
Wrentham’s Big Apple Farm offers delights for all ages; indulge your inner child with a Hayride, snack on delicious homemade cider donuts and caramel apples, and enjoy choosing from 26 varieties of apples, 28 types of vegetables, and Pick Your Own blueberries and raspberries! Big Apple farm even caters to craft beer lovers, with a Hops Yard, where home brewers can pick their own locally grown hops and impress friends with their own homemade brew!
Ward’s Berry Farm, just miles away in nearby Sharon, MA is another popular Fall destination for New Englanders. Visitors flock to the infamous corn maze, open daily from 9am – 4pm. Ward’s Berry Farm offers plenty of excitement for all ages, with goats, sheep, cows and ponies to pet, bunnies available for purchase, and plenty of chickens laying fresh eggs perfect for serving up for Sunday brunch. Enjoy picking your own pumpkins, cherry tomatoes, and the last of this year’s blueberries.
Travel a little further and spend your Saturday at Natick’s Lookout Farm, which is one of the oldest continuous working farms in the US. We love the Lookout Farm Taproom, with four flavors of craft cider on tap, plus delicious food pairings like house-made gelato and pulled-pork flatbread pizza.
