Red Apple Farm is open to the public for the purchase of their farm grown produce, value-added products such as apple cider donuts, other baked goods, and much more from their farm store.

Property History

In 2007, Mount Grace helped the Rose family place a CR on 103 acres of working woodlands adjacent to their orchards. The remainder of the farm is protected by an Agricultural Preservation Restriction (APR) held by the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources. Bill Rose is a critical advocate for land conservation in and around Phillipston, and has helped Mount Grace develop several successful projects with neighbors near the farm.
