Apple Picking - Deciding between 3 farms

jayk | Sep 19, 2006 04:48 PM

Hi, I'm taking my family who are visiting from Taiwan on an New England Tradition - Apple picking - this weekend. We are also biring a 15 month toddler (so there needs to be some entertainment for him like zoo, hay stacks, maze etc..). We would like to make a whole day or at least half a day of the event - need suggestions for places to eat in the vicinity as well. I did some research and have narrowed it down to these choices:

1. Russell Farms - lunch/dinner at Clam Shack, Essex, to Crane's if it is a warm day
2. Cider Hill Farm in Amesbury - lunch/dinner at same places as above
3. Parlee Farms in Tyngsboro - lunch/dinner ??

BTW - I have been to Russell Farms (for their yummy cider donuts) and would love to check out the other ones but if Russells' is better than the other ones, I'm happy to go there again. Are there places that have organic fruits?
