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!

Where did winter go?
We promise, we didn't spend it all catnapping - ok, maybe a little. We did get out to enjoy the snow and even did some skating among the beaver houses. One of the joys of cross country skiing across the pond and into the woods is seeing what critters have been out and about. We saw many tracks, the most exciting of which were moose, (right near the house!) and otter on the pond. We didn't get a photo of the otter tracks but they looked like the ones below. Otters make a very cool pattern by running and sliding on their bellies, as shown in this video . (See photos on our newsletter. You can sign up below))
What didn't happen this winter was getting through our entire "off-season" to-do list! Too easy to put off such things as "reorganize filing system.
