Phantom Farms in Cumberland, R.I., bursts with farm-fresh
farm stand personality.
Aesthetically pleasing with its cornstalks, rocking chairs, and
colorful flowers (and pumpkins in the fall) and outdoor dining deck
gracing its traditional New England-style front porch, Phantom Farms
offers a love-at-first-sight presence that has more in common with a
classic Vermont village rather than a northern Rhode Island Providence
Best known as a terrific apple picking destination during the fall with
its beautiful rolling farm land (come early, the 15 varieties of apples
get picked over quickly as the season goes on), Phantom Farms equally
warms our New England souls year-round with a country bake and gift
shop, quaint dining room, garden center, and flower shop. The bake shop
remains, hands-down, our
favorite retail subdivision here with
delicious pies (try the blueberry!), pastries, muffins, whoopie pies,
fudge brownies, bagels, and perhaps the most amazing, sweet concoction
on the planet: pumpkin mousse roll!
Of course, Phantom Farms offers all the familiar roadside stand
favorites like fresh apple cider, jams, a candy counter, gift baskets
with fruit, as well a dazzling pumpkin patch in the fall, wreaths and
trees for the Christmas holiday season, and plants and mulch for the
spring and summer. Add fun, seasonal events like the Easter Egg Hunt,
Apple and Pumpkin Harvest Weekends, a Kids Fair and Christmas Jubilee,
and you've got a permanent roadside farm friend -- the ideal local
business that works hard to please the customer.
It's really no wonder Phantom Farms has been known as a local family
tradition for more than 50 years in the Blackstone Valley region of
Rhode Island. We heartily recommend this roadside treasure for the
locals, as well as those traveling New England in search of a wonderful
Phantom Farms, 2920 Diamond Hill Rd., Cumberland, RI. Tel.: (401)
333-2240. Open year-round.
