There's a lot going on at the farm these days, even as we wait for the strawberries to ripen, which should be around Mid June. Save the date for our annual Strawberry Festival on June 27th and 28th!
Our own vegetables are coming in daily, with a mighty awesome asparagus crop this year. Our greenhouse tomatoes are turning pink, and we have already started harvesting the Sungolds.

Wine tastings: Fridays from 3:00-5:30, and on weekends from 12-5:30. Come on down and try some of our award winning fruit wines and hard ciders. 

The exceptional bakery crew is preparing our fresh baked goodies from scratch every day, including our famous cider donuts.

We are proud to offer Richardson's premium ice cream every day. Stop by for a cup or a cone as you stroll around the pond and watch the animals play.

We are not recruiting new employees at this time, but if you are seeking employment for the fall, please send a letter with prior work experience, references, and your availability to: Russell Orchards 143 Argilla Rd. Ipswich, MA 01938.
