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!

Tis the season for a Special!
How do our products make great gifts?
Let us count the ways:
Shrubs and Cordial transform:
plain yogurt into ambrosia,
a cup of seltzer into a chalice of delight,
a glass of sparkling wine into a Kir Royale
olive oil into a special salad dressing
Conserves and chutney make:
cheeses come alive
toast taste sublime

Holiday Fairs and Festivals
Our shrubs and black currant cordial need to be tasted to be understood, and we give out hundreds of samples at fairs and markets. It is always fun to watch people taste our products for the first time. We usually direct young children (with parental consent) to the strawberry/rhubarb shrub, which most consume enthusiastically. Last weekend we had the joy of watching a youngster devour four cups of tart black currant cordial - and he probably would have kept going. A truly wonderful sight.
There are a few more fairs before we wrap up 2018. Hope to see you there.
