Bug Hill Farm is a small, certified organic, rare fruits farm in Ashfield, MA. We are best known for our berries, fruit cordials, shrubs, and syrups, crafted from local raspberries, currants, gooseberries, blueberries, elderberries, strawberries and rhubarb, and sweetened with locally-produced honey and maple syrup. We manage our farm, honeybees and nearly fifty acres of woodlands for wildlife and pollinator habitat as well as organically grown products to nourish and delight our customers.
