Nestled in the Nashoba Valley, Westward Orchards is a 275-acre, fourth-generation family farm that produces the area’s best blueberries, peaches, pears, plums, and apples. The farm’s on-site store — in a 1900-era dairy barn — is filled with gourmet foods, fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods, sandwiches, and hearty soups. Enjoy a cup of coffee, a snack, or lunch on the covered porch; the lunch counter hours are 11am–3pm; breakfast is available on weekends, 9–11am.
