Our family produces a variety of unique, full flavored apples, peaches and pears and on over thirty acres of orchards. Baldwins and Northern Spies are just a few of the old time favorite apples that can still be found in our country store. Macouns and Honey Crisp are the current favorites that everyone wants!
Our peaches, the Alberta's and Sweet Sue's, are known as the juiciest peaches, bursting with outrageous flavor in every bite. People agree you have to come to Outlook Farm for the sweetest peaches around! Clapp's Favorite, Bartlett and Bosc are the pears we harvest.
Nectarines, cherries, plums, raspberries, asparagus and strawberries grow abundantly and the greens, tomatoes and the many vegetables from the garden are plentiful.
Integrated Pest Management - IPM
We have farmed for over 30 years following an Integrated Pest Management system that we have studied with the Extension Service at the University of Massachusetts. IPM is an ecosystem-based strategy that focuses on long-term prevention of pests or their damage through a combination of techniques such as biological control, habitat manipulation, modification of cultural practices and use of resistant varieties. Pesticides are used only after monitoring indicates they are needed according to established guidelines, and treatments are made with the goal of removing only the target organism. Pest control materials are selected and applied in a manner that minimizes risks to human health, beneficial and non-target organisms, and the environment.
Pioneer Valley Local Crops
Our Produce Barn is packed with all the crops that we grow on the farm as well as the local produce from the Valley!
