Tougas Family had a farm and on Tougas Family Farm it's all about having a fun, fruit picking farm experience for the family!
Simple farmyard pleasures will greet the whole family when you visit this sweet natured farm, complete with a barnyard, farm kitchen and playground.
Always popular with the kids, the barnyard is full of sweet little (and some not so little!) animals that the kids can enjoy. There are fun pygmy goats that climb up their rock mountain and enjoy their little goat bridge.
There are noisy pot bellied pigs that roll around in the mud, and the very fast Indian Runner ducks! New arrivals are always coming into the barnyard, so have a look and see if you can spot any babies!
The farms playground is an authentic farm playground designed for elementary school aged kids. Jump aboard the antique tractor and get your picture taken on it! Can you imagine what it would really be like to ride that? There are swings to get those butterflies in your tummy on, and slippery slides to speed down!
And what would a farm be without fruit picking From June to October there are a host of different fruits and come and go in season - from delicious strawberries to juicy apples, just in time for those festive pumpkins! There's something very fun and organic about getting right in there and tasting fruit you can see exactly where it's come from!
If you have worked up an appetite you can go and indulge in the delicious farm store and kitchen, where perhaps a home made pie will take your fancy? YUM!
Prices vary for the fruit being picked. Blackberries from $13

At 246 Ball St in Northboro, the farm is very close to get to from New England.
From Boston, take the Massachusetts Turnpike, or the I-90, to exit 11A for the I-496. Take this north and then use exit 25B for I-290 W. Follow this toward Worcester. Turn right towards Boylston, and then the first right in Ball St. Then just follow the signs up the hill.
They offer fun and delicious field trips during the apple harvest (Sept - Oct). They take bookings every 15 minutes and tours last between 90 minutes and 2 hours. Suitable for those from preschool to grade 3, they will have a fun time with all the animals, and learning about the foods and where they come from.
The delicious Farm Store and Kitchen are open until November, but double check before you go. They have a host of yummy things to buy including preserves and cookbooks, so you can take the farm back to you!
There are handicapped accessible restrooms located between the Kitchen and Barnyard.
