Tougas Farm

September 27th, 2009 · No Comments

Today I was determined to get some small pumpkins for above our front door. We usually go to Mac’s Apples up in Londonderry, NH but since it was rainy we decided to take a trip to Northborough to Tougas Farm. I’ve never been here before but I have heard people rave about it.
We got there and headed to the picking desk located in a building that sells apples, honey, peaches and apple treat kids for candy and caramel apples:

I feel bad saying this (because I know so many people love this place) but I was disappointed that the set up was a field of pre-cut pumpkins.

There was a patch on he other side but the pumpkins didn’t seem that great and again, most of them (if not all) were already cut and all too large for above my doorway.

I know it was a rough year for pumpkins because of all the rain we had in the spring. I was just looking for something like Mac’s that has both large and small pumpkins and they give you clippers to cut your own (I like picking ones with interesting stems and choosing the length).
Other than that it looked like a fun place to pick apples and while we didn’t make it to the kitchen, I bought 5 very nice quality apples and made a delicious apple crisp.  Since my mission was purely pumpkins today, I will be back because I really feel I didn’t get the full Tougas Farm experience.   From looking at their website they have so much more to offer and I’ll return when it’s not raining (like today) and bring my nephew.
I’m wondering if there are any places in the metrowest area that have a PYO and cut-your-own pumpkin patch.
