At Nashoba Valley we appreciate the importance of dogs in our lives and therefore allow dogs to enjoy our property. Responsible dog ownership requires a respect for other visitors and our staff who might be afraid or allergic to various animals.

We therefore ask that you follow our simple rules:

  • Dogs are allowed on the picnic grounds and parts of the orchard that are open to the public.
  • No dogs (except HC assisted) are allowed in any building at any time or on the outside dining patio area of the restaurant.
  • All dogs must be on a leash at all times with maximum 8-foot leash. Dogs cannot be left unattended or tied to a tree or post and left unattended.
  • It is not possible to participate in a tour or tasting and attend to your dog and it is not possible to dine at the restaurant leaving your dog unattended. We suggest that you order picnic lunches and dine on our grounds where dogs are allowed.
  • Dogs must be under control of their owners at all times.
  • Owners must control excessive barking and noise.
  • All dogs must be licensed and vaccinated.
  • All dog owners are required to clean up and properly dispose of waste of his/her dog. We do not provide bags for disposal so owners are required to bring their own.
  • Dogs acting aggressively must be removed immediately.
  • Dog bathing is not allowed.
  • Female dogs in heat are not permitted.
  • No dog under 4 months old are permitted.
  • Please make sure your dog understand that they are responsible for the behavior of their owners! πŸ˜‰


Should you wish to visit and eat with your dog, we would strongly suggest the best option is a Picnic Lunch where you can eat at our picnic grounds with your dog nearby.
