Tucked away in Ipswich Massachusetts, on the way to Crane’s Beach is Russell Orchards. Russell Orchards is a family owned and operated 120 acre fruit farm in Ipswich, MA. Owners Doug and Miranda Russell are the second generation of Russells to farm this land. Prior to their taking ownership in 2008, Doug and Miranda learned the business from Doug’s father Max who had farmed here for 30 years.
The days are getting shorter and soon the air will be getting cooler. Now is the time to plan your trip to this beautiful family farm. You and your kids will love all it has to offer. Start with a hayride out to the expansive orchards to pick your own apples. There are numerous varieties to choose from. The walk in the orchard alone will have you relaxing and enjoying your family. When you get back from your hayride, visit with many of the farm animals or listen to one of the many live bands that perform every Fall. Take pictures in our field of bright orange pumpkins! No visit would be complete without a trip to the Farm Stand. Sample our wines, or shop for our fresh produce. If local crafts and art are your thing there is quite a showcase to choose from. You won’t be able to resist the aroma of the cider donuts especially if they are fresh from the oven. Visit their website to plan your next visit! Russell Orchards.
