It is with a heavy heart that we must share some unfortunate news regarding the 2023 Peach Update. As you may be well aware, on February 4th we experienced an exceptionally harsh Freeze of temperatures dipping as low as -14 Degrees. We must now regretfully inform you that due to this unfortunate event, there will not be any peach or nectarine picking available for the year of 2023. Our team sympathizes deeply with any disappointment that this news may bring, but farming is a risky business and that is why it is so important to support local farms in good and in bad years.  We want to be here for you in the future so help us endure by supporting out other operations. Thank you for your understanding and support during this difficult time. is

Many of our apples are not typically found in supermarkets, so you are in for a treat! You can try some new varieties and perhaps find a new favorite. Our selection is extensive, and there is something for everyone. Whether you prefer sweet or tart, crisp or soft, we have an apple that is perfect for you. Some people have been coming back to our farm for years to get their hands on a particular type of apple, and we are always happy to see them again. Others enjoy mixing up their bags and trying something new. Whatever your preference, you will leave our orchard with a smile on your face and a bag filled with delicious, freshly picked apples.

PYO Operations - A starting guide to visiting

Welcome to PYO orchards at Nashoba, where we provide an unforgettable experience for families to enjoy the fruits of our labor. Our working farm thrives on the effort we put in for nine months of the year, from pruning, mowing, spraying, cutting, thinning, and managing our apple trees. Our passion lies in providing fresh, sustainable, and delicious fruit for your enjoyment. We feel honored and fulfilled when we witness families respectfully picking and savoring our apples as we appreciate the joy that comes with farming.

We encourage visitors to check our website beforehand to know what fruits are currently available and understand that conditions change rapidly in the orchard. Despite our best efforts to estimate foot traffic and promote our crop availability, there may be times when unexpected crowds lead to a shortage of apples. While we do not require reservations, visitors must purchase PYO bags before entering the orchard. Our bags come in small and large sizes and can hold up to 1 peck or a 1/2 bushel of apples, but visitors are not obligated to fill them up fully. Please avoid overfilling the bags or placing apples in your pockets or purses. Our ability to financially survive, with the sustainable growing of fruit being our main goal, rests upon your respect for our farm.

At Nashoba PYO, we welcome visitors of all ages to come and enjoy picking apples but please note that we are not a farm that provides entertainment for children. We do not offer hayrides, play areas, domesticated animals to pet, or other such activities that you might find at our neighboring farms. We provide a wealth of information about visiting with children and request that you take a moment to understand and agree to our expectations. Climbing trees, smashing apples on the ground, or throwing apples as a substitute for a baseball, are strictly forbidden. We believe that a farm is a wonderful place to teach respect for farmers and the fruit they grow, and it’s always an enriching learning experience for children when parents encourage them to ask permission before assuming that something is acceptable.

Pets on a leash at all times are allowed in the picking fields, but visitors must immediately pick up after them for health reasons. We advise visitors to wear sensible outdoor shoes or trainers as the trail around the fields is a reasonable distance to walk. We recommend wellies too, especially if it has been raining, as the grass may be wet and muddy in places. Nashoba PYO is the perfect destination for a memorable family outing that combines a fun and educational experience of sustainable farming with the enjoyment of our delicious fruit. Come and discover the wonders of our orchard today!

Winter and Spring Frost Damage

 Vineyards and apple orchards across the Northeast are still gauging damage from a late-season frost in May that wiped out a third to most of the crop for some growers who say it’s the worst frost damage they have ever seen.

At Nashoba, we lost 100% of our peach crop,  up to 60% of its grap crop when the temperature dipped to 25 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 3 degrees Celsius) for five hours on May 18 which is potentially  an eighty thousand dollar revenue loss.  While our apples look good, there is definitely some frost damage to the skins of the apple which raises a little concern.  The length of time that the temperature dipped below freezing was unusual but it was a confluence of circumstances — the bud stage, susceptible plant tissues that were out, and a lack of wind — that caused such damage.

These are very difficult times for farms in New England and everyone at Nashoba encourages our friends to support local.  Between the pandemic and this loss we are very concerned that more farms will be lost in 2023.
