Natick - Belkin Family Lookout Farm

89 Pleasant Street South

Three centuries before Steve and Joan Belkin of Weston, Massachusetts purchased Lookout Farm in 2005, Natick was just a small settlement west of Boston. In 1650, Minister John Eliot (whose name now graces the town’s Eliot School and the Eliot Church) and a group of settlers paddled down the Charles River in canoes and made their home by the fertile shores of the river. This group later established the farm.

Over the years, Lookout Farm has become one of the oldest working farms in the country, and an important part of the history of South Natick. Originally, the land yielded beans, turnips, strawberries, and grapes. Eliot and his community were friendly with the Native Americans who inhabited the area, which was known to them as “the place of the hills.” Today, this “place” is Lookout Farm.

The atmosphere was nice, the food fare is simple and limited but prepared well. The main attraction is the beverage. Both hard cider and beers are easy on the wallet and available by the glass or sampler. Music adds to the ambience but it can get challenging to talk due to the sound bouncing off the hard surfaces. Luckily they due have a large area off the bar that has large tables were you can hang out and talk.

The farm was beautiful but it was WAY overpriced. I have been apple picking for years having grew up in New England and I have never been charged a cover fee to enter a farm. For a group of two, we were out over $50 before we even picked an apple. If you had a family of four, be prepared to drop $100 to pick apples. The tasting room is a cute addition to the farm. The beer and cider is average but the chicken tenders were great!

I just want to be upfront for those who are considering going to this farm to pick apples. Admission for adults on the weekend is $16. Children under 12 are $14. Kids under 2 are free. Not too bad until you realize you have to pay $20+ for each bag of apples. For two adults and a "peck" it cost us $54 just to walk in the door. This cost includes Apple picking and "unlimited" train rides to get to the orchard. This place is better suited for families with kids but be ready to shell out some serious cash. Also be ready to wait in line to get in, pay, and then wait in line to get on the train

Really fun place with a lot of fall activities. My children enjoy the kids area and really liked the storyeller. Biggest negative is the price. We've been to other farms that offer a comparable experience at a much more affordable price. I also didn't enjoy staff telling us the only way to move from one part of the orchard to another was by waiting for a very crowded trolley. It was a beautiful day and we were all looking forward to a nice walk.
