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!

Thanks for the great season!
The Pick-Your-Own season concluded in late October when our fall raspberries finally succumbed to a series of cold days. It is a bittersweet time: relief that the pace of work will slow but regret that the flow of pickers will end. We are very appreciative of all those who come to pick at Bug Hill Farm. We enjoy hearing why you have made the trip: many because our berries are certified organic; some because of our less common fruit - currants and elderberries; others because they simply love being on the farm. Thank you for sharing your joy and excitement about picking our berries. And thank you for your understanding, when, as a small operation, we wrestle with the challenge of figuring out how best to advertise availability while ensuring we have enough for all who want to pick. We look forward to seeing you in 2019, starting with currants and black raspberries in mid-July. Winter hours: by chance or appointment. Hope to see you here!
