Aesthetically pleasing with its cornstalks, rocking chairs, and colorful flowers (and pumpkins in the fall) gracing its traditional New England-style front porch and adjoining snack deck, 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 suburb.
Best known as a terrific apple picking destination during the fall (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, 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 farm stand.
