Enjoy the Sights and Tastes of Autumn in Lexington!

A vibrant backdrop of bold reds, oranges and golds enhance the fall season in Lexington MA! Visitors from across the US take time each Autumn to explore New England’s most stunning display. Those residing in Lexington are privileged to live in the middle of the main attraction, but there are many other ways that locals enjoy soaking in the fall season! Apple orchards and pumpkin patches abound and offer a fun and interactive way to enjoy the sights and tastes of this great time of year.

Lexington is home to one of the best farms where you can spend the day picking your favorite apples and searching for the perfect pumpkin to carve! The Wilson Farm, which was established in 1884, still carries the tradition of excellent produce, cheeses, breads and much more- all grown and baked right on the farm! The Wilson Farm also offers fun events throughout the year to highlight each season. Don’t miss Octobers’ full calendar of hayrides, costume and pumpkin carving contests and much more!

It’s goal is to provide healthy, outdoor, family fun activity while maintaining the farm’s long-rooted history and importance within the community for years to come.
