We had a fun time at Shelburne Farm in Stow Massachusetts. We were staying in Boston and it was not a long drive from our hotel. The best part was meeting up with my cousin who I had not seen in 40+ years, she was...More

Lovely farm stand with very nice staff. We went to buy apples last week. They were DOUBLE the price of apples at Bolton Farms on Rt. 117. Do not buy your apples at Shelburne Farms.

Visited in September so a couple of weeks before peak crowds. Still was busy but no long lines. Several kid-focused activities; wish they had adult-sized pedal tractors. Did not get the hoped for cider donuts but that was my choice to skip 10-15 minute wait....More

Love Shelburne! It's a great spot for apple picking, cider doughnuts and fun with the kiddos. In the fall they typically have a fire pit going and the smell of the burning wood while sipping apple cider is the best.

This orchard is not as crowded as others yet has events, good apple selection and entertainment. Fun place for family and couples. Navigating parking can be a challenge.

Came because I heard the doughnuts were good. The reviews didn't lie! I wish it wasn't raining, but we got a couple doughnuts and a cider, both were yummy. The drive there was beautiful with all of the trees this time of year too.

Four of us made our annual visit for apple picking. There were several types to choose from- macs, Cortlands and honey crisps. The usual delicious cider, cheeses and cider donuts were eagerly consumed as well. The pumpkin patch was huge, offering some good sized selections,...More

We've been coming here for years to pick our apples, and our now-20 something daughters still come with us. There can be a line to pay to pick, but take your bag and go all the way back into the orchard and you'll have plenty...More

My husband always visited Shelburne farms when he was a boy, and now we have enjoyed going back as adults. The cider doughnuts here are far superior to the other orchards nearby (in my opinion). This orchard is USUALLY less busy than the nearby Honey...More
