Monadnock Berries in Troy, NH
Just an hour and 45 minutes north of Boston is Monadnock Berries. The offer pick your own for Blueberries, Currants, Gooseberries and Raspberries! They also have animals you can interact with and a farm stand with different local items. They offer pick your own in various sizes and it is priced per volume not by weight.
Monadnock Berries is a second-generation family farm in Troy, New Hampshire since 1995. They grow Blueberries, Currants, Gooseberries and Raspberries and host weddings if you are in the business of needing a venue!
The views are unmatched at Monadnock Berries where you have endless fields of berries with Mount Monadnock as your backdrop! I could spend all day wandering the aisles of berries admiring how beautiful and tasty they are! The blueberries we pick here are some of the BIGGEST blueberries I have ever seen.
Granite Roots Beer Garden
After you have worked up an appetite and thirst, you can head on over to Granite Roots (which is owned by Monadnock Berries) to grab a drink and a bite to eat from the food trucks there! Granite Roots brews a wide range of beer from hazy IPA’s to Stouts & Porters and Sours inspired by fruit from the Monadnock Berries farm. The beer garden is dog friendly and located on Rt 12 North of Troy. The food truck there offers wood fired pizza and live music on weekends.
We went to Monadnock Berries a few weeks ago specifically to pick blueberries for a blueberry lemon cake. This day trip would be a perfect opportunity to grab your friends and pick berries for a fun baking recipe!
I made delicious blueberry muffins and a blueberry lemon cake, here are the recipes:
In just under 2 hours, you can escape the bustle of the city and pick your own fresh produce on a beautiful summer day.
