Bug Hill Farm is best known for our fruit cordials, shrubs, syrups, spreads, sauces, drink mixers, and dessert toppings, all crafted from local raspberries, currants, gooseberries, blueberries, elderberries, strawberries and rhubarb, and sweetened with locally-produced honey and maple syrup. The farm is USDA Certified Organic, and we manage our farm, honeybees and nearly fifty acres of mostly wild woodlands for wildlife and pollinator habitat as well as organically grown products to nourish and delight our customers.

Bug Hill Farm's products have been featured in The Boston Globe, The Springfield Republican, Country Gardens Magazine, and USA Magazine.
