Stopped here on a Saturday afternoon while we were out for fall activities. This taproom is lovely. It's a new facility with rustic nuances and chill vibe. There are four ciders on tap so I opted for a flight to try them all. Yum! They also have food (flatbreads, pretzels, salads and apple cider donuts). This was the perfect stop... More

The farm is beautiful. There is a cider house brewery that we were there to celebrate a friends birthday. The place was very busy and long lines to get drinks. I would have given five stars but the staff seemed unprepared to be busy on a beautiful fall day.

This is certainly different from apple picking in England! This is a business! We visited on Columbus weekend so therefore quite busy! A train is provided to get you to the picking areas and also to the playground. The playground is good for most ages and includes a few farm animals and for an extra payment you can have a... More

Nothing works up a thirst quite like a day of apple-picking, amirite? After spending an afternoon at Lookout Farm - getting lost in the orchards, riding the train around and around, and picking (alright mostly eating) our fair share of apples and pears - we were ready to find a nice spot to sit and some nice bevies to sip....

There were no apples to pick up for my kids and they made me pay $22 for Apple iPhone got off the ground and in not so good condition. False advertising on what is included in the admissions prices. Not toddler friendly! No apple cider donuts and bad customer service ever.My family felt like we were being discriminating against because... More

It was a perfect fall day and why not visit a local well farm to get some local farm product. The store doesn't have much local foods. Yes, there's plenty of apple cider, donuts, pies, and jam. But where are all the fresh local farm products? Then there is the crowd with lines everywhere and grumpy parents. Luckily there's no... More

We usually take our son once a year to go apple picking. If you go on the weekends it can be a zoo. Fairly expensive ($15 for a "small" bag) and it can be difficult to find sections of the farm that haven't been picked over. I think going with smaller kids (5 and under) is better as they probably... More

I was quite disappointed in my visit on Sunday 9-25-16. I knew that it could be a busy day given the nice weather and that the Patriots were not playing and that played out as I expected. We got there at 1030 and were instructed to park and then we walked to the ticket line where there was absolutely no... More

Would give zero stars but trip advisor made me give it one. Came to go Apple picking. Paid 105 dollars admission for family of 5. No apples to be picked. Better off going to the supermarket. Best part was the kid caterpillar ride. Requested refund to which they were only willing to give back 36 dollars. Worst Apple picking experience... More

We go in the spring to pick strawberries and at least once in the fall to pick apples. They have animals for the kids to view, lots of activities like face painting and balloon animals etc. Our kids love it there and it's so conveniently located right in Natick.
