  • This is a beautiful, well-kept working farm, with loads to do and many paths to explore. Stonewalls abound throughout the property, making Appleton Farms the perfect backdrop for New England autumn day. This is a great spot picnic, so bring a blanket to spread out. There are very clean restrooms by the education center, a small farm store that sells local wares and plenty of parking onsite. Also it’s good to note that most of the walking paths and trails are flat, well-groomed and very accessible. If you’re looking for an easy ramble or an outing with little ones, look no further!
  • There’s not a lot to see at the farm. A few animals and an area with picnic tables. It’s a working farm so there’s areas that are not open to visitors. They do have miles of trails that you can walk.
  • They put on the best Haunted Trail. It was very creative. The Farm Store is precious and contains thoughtful products for clean eating.
  • No Farm Animals present when we went The trails should have been properly marked Nice place to walk around though I feel 10$ is high price given that we did not see any farm animals
  • Gorgeous farm, would love to be part of their csa...the store has lots of goodies to buy including fresh vegetables, dairy item, meat and home baked goodies
