Bug Hill Farm is a small berry farm in Ashfield, MA. We are best known for our PYO berries, fruit cordials, shrubs, and conserves. We craft our products from local fruit (including some of our black currants, raspberries and aronia) other mostly organic berries, and honey or organic sugar. We manage our land following organic and regenerative practices to grow nutrient dense berries and to foster native habitat for wildlife and pollinators.
Starting our second year....
We are very excited to be starting our second year living and working at Bug Hill Farm.
Hope to see you at the farm!

Happy Summer Solstice!
Bees, butterflies and other pollinators have feasted on the currants, blueberries, black raspberries and aronia, leaving us a bounty of green berries yearning to turn black and blue. Both the native and cultivated blues are especially laden this year - perhaps why the birds are singing so enthusiastically? Next on the pollinator trail are elderflowers, now bursting into bloom. Starting mid-July, we will send short, weekly emails listing what's ripe for pick-your-own harvest. Here is a outline of the anticipated schedule, subject to rainfall, heat, hail, birds, and other of nature's wonders.
Currants: mid-July to mid-August
Black Raspberries: mid-July to early-August
Blueberries: late July to late August
Aronia: mid-August to early September
Fall Raspberries: late August to early November
Elderberries: September - if the birds don't get them first
