I've done some preliminary research on the board and found a few posts about apple-picking in the area, but most of the good places listed were out near Stow (an hour away from where I live in Brookline). Is there anywhere closer to Boston for picking apples that doesn't make you feel like you have accidentally gone to a children's amusement park? My bf and I tried Belkin farms in Natick last year and ended up leaving when we saw the magic show and line for the hayride to get to the apples. We are just looking for a quiet orchard to pick some apples, and if the only way to get that experience is to drive an hour, so be it, but I wanted to poll the board first. Thanks!
