Apples galore, cider donuts, winery, hayrides, cider pressing. Yes, all this (and more!) exists in one place. Russell Orchards in Ipswich has served as a long-time favorite to locals and non-locals alike. The winery began in 1988 when the orchard first introduced hard cider. Today, they also produce various fruit wines and are hoping to segue into the more traditional wine market. Be sure to check their calendar for the pick-your-own schedule and special events.
All of these things are so quintessentially fall. We may just have to take a drive up to Ipswich this weekend.Russell Orchards, 143 Argilla Road, Ipswich, Monday-Sunday, 9:00am-6:00pm. For more information, visit their website or call 978-356-5366.
