Belkin Family Lookout Farm

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 do have a large area off the bar that has large tables were you can hang out and talk.

Very over-priced. The strawberries were pretty much wiped out less than halfway into the weekend; they should have shut that part down. We were barely able to pick a 1/2 quart of tiny, sad looking berries. The kids play area was just an average playground. The live music was just a guy playing a 4 song set on a guitar. I flushed $50 away, don't do the same. Much better options in the area.

Farm supports liberal ideologies and open boarders. Wont be doing business with these Elizabeth Warren supporters

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!
