Some mistakenly regard Out Post Farm in Holliston, Mass. as just a destination for purchasing Thanksgiving turkeys but only thinking that way would be a "fowl" thought. There's so much more to see here at this beloved MetroWest farm stand!

Take autumn for example, when seasonal bells and whistles create many fall time delights for the senses. For starters, pumpkins dot the rural landscape to serve a commanding introduction to autumn in New England...

The apple cider doughnuts rank amongst the best we've tasted in New England, with an intense, full-bodied apple taste and just enough sugar to sweeten this yummy snack. It's also bigger than most other local apple cider doughnuts...

Perhaps getting ahead ourselves by first mentioning desserts before meals, the lunches at Out Post Farm also satisfy greatly with, as expected, turkey as a specialty. The menu goes beyond turkey, however, with broasted chicken, chicken Caesar wraps, ham paninis and more. Smoker Tuesdays from 12 noon to 7 p.m. offers smoked brisket, turkey, ribs and pulled pork that includes a choice of two sides: cole slaw, cucumber salad, baked beans and potato wedges.  BBQ Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. offers a BBQ dinner with a choice of two sides: cole slaw, macaroni salad, potato salad, mashed potatoes and baked beans. The meal also includes corn and cornbread.  

Here is the Thanksgiving Turkey Wrap with fresh Out Post Farm turkey along with cranberry sauce and homemade stuffing...

What really helps send Out Post Farm into the unofficial New England Hall of Fame for autumn farm stand destinations is the ambiance. The fresh air, open fields, natural surroundings and colorful mum and other flowers for sale provide a relaxing respite from hectic suburban and urban life.

Fall meets winter in Walpole, MA unframed photo printNew England Gift Idea! Fall Meets Winter in Walpole, MA Unframed Photo Print -- Your purchase of this Fall Meets Winter Unframed Photo Printhelps keep VisitingNewEngland going. I (Eric Hurwitz, publisher of VisitingNewEngland) captured this scene on Oct. 31, 2020 on North Street in Walpole, Massachusetts. Notice the contrast of foliage and recent snowfall. This is part of what makes New England so special! North Street is one of the most beautiful semi-rural locations in the Boston suburbs. If in the area, definitely take a ride there! This photo was taken at 80 ISO, F8.0, with a shutter speed of 60. It is best printed at 8X10 but also looks fine at 11X14 or 16X20.
