Autumn Hills Orchard

Autumn Hills Orchard is an authentic working orchard located in the historic and scenic town of Groton, Massachusetts — 45 miles northwest of Boston. The orchard is located on three rolling drumlin hills which run from south to north. The top of the ridge offers a spectacular view of the surrounding and distant hills and mountains in Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire. From our center ridge hilltop you can see Wachusett to the west, Monadnock and Wataitic, as well as Temple and Crotched to the north and the nearby Nissitissit Hills.

Starting in June 2021, the Herdiech family will welcome you to Autumn Hills.  “As Groton residents and now stewards of this beautiful farm, we are excited to be sharing the 2021 harvest with customers old and new and we look forward to seeing you at Autumn Hills this season.”  – Ed & Kim Herdiech

We Grow


We grow over 30 varieties of apples at Autumn Hills.  Early apples start in late August and harvest continues through October.  See What’s in Season for a more complete list of PYO apples.  


Berries start in late June with raspberries.  In July, blueberries come on strong with fall raspberries coming back in mid-August.  Summer hours can vary depending on supply and weather so check the schedule before you come from a distance. 


We grow a limited amount of pears; both Bartlett and Bosc pears.  Most of our pears go to our CSA fruit customers as the supply is limited and CSA subscribers get first pick! 


Most of our peaches go to our CSA customers and to selected markets, but if you’re lucky, you might find peaches for sale at the farm in August and early September.

Small, tucked away farm with the freshest raspberries for picking! We came here after being detoured from another PYO spot told us they stopped letting people in at 11am. Well good thing we found Autumn Hill nearby. We drove down a path and saw a friendly face that directed us to the raspberry bushes. We paid $9 for a quart and had the whole spot to ourselves on a sunny Sunday afternoon

Great for fall apple picking. Bring a lunch and enjoy the picnic tables at the top of the hill with a great view and plenty of fresh apples.

We go here ever year. This place is magnificent and many many varieties of apples. You are charged by the pound and is not crowded so I love it! Worth the trip from Boston.
