England travel article with your friends...
If you love traditional New England farm stands without a hint of 21st
century pretentiousness, the Big Apple in Wrentham, Mass., should be
the apple of your eye.
Located in a big old barn in the
classic New England picturesque Sheldonville section of Wrentham (a
southwest Boston, Massachusetts, suburb), the likable Big Apple offers,
starters, seasonal apple, blueberry and raspberry picking and a
splendid view of the automated apple grade that sorts, washes and
polishes the apples. There's a terrific fruit and vegetable stand with
24 varieties of apples and 28 kinds of vegetables, a bakery with the
most delicious apple cider doughnuts (and a lot more), jams,
seasonings, syrups, candies, fudge,
delicious pies, hayrides, a pumpkin patch, and one of the best ice
cream stands you'll find with a nice rural feel and ice cream from the
legendary, local Richardson's, of Middletown, MA (apple crisp or
pumpkin ice cream, anyone?).

I have often thought of the Big Apple as the prototype for what people
expect when visiting a farm stand in New England for the first time.
While not as big as some other area farm stands, the Big Apple
encapsulates the true spirit of a working farm. It's especially
beautiful in the fall with that nice, crisp New England feel in the air
and all the good things for sale that we look for during the foliage
