Owner description: Belkin Family Lookout Farm is a fun place to visit and is one of the oldest continuously working farms in the U.S. Ride the train and pick your own fruit from mid-summer through the fall - peaches, apples, Asian pears. From May - Oct, families can also enjoy the Children's Play Area, moonbounce, caterpillar rides and more. Weekends include live children's entertainment, face painting and other fun things. Petting zoo and camel rides are available Sept - Oct.

Because it is close, I have purchased the membership for more than 3 years. But the service and fruits are getting worse and worse every year. I get disappointment after every visit recently. Fewer people go there and the farm has fewer animals and less fun. Plus, The staff are liars and they claim they have ripened fruits and collect our money at the door. But for more than 2 years, it is impossible for me to fill a bag with normal fruits, let alone good fruits. I am forced to end up with picking what ever the left-overs on the trees. The staffs even do not allow people see the fruits before paying money, which is really ridiculous and unacceptable.

Even with the $12/person admission, this farm is great fun!

From the play area out front, to the train ride (adorable) to pick fruit (delicious peaches and golden apples),to the other play area with goats and more inflatable areas and ride on toys and hay area. My 3 1/2 year old granddaughter's face lit up at every turn.

There are snacks available to purchase and places to sit and take it all in. So many acres there is room for everyone!

Not to be missed. We will be back for more apple picking and hay ride. So much to do in one place, hours of fun.

The Taproom opens at 3, serves flatbread pizza and their own hard cider, and more. Will visit that next time.

Great family fun!

We went to pick strawberries. Little did we know that they charge $12.00 per person (!!!) just to go in, then another $7.00 per quart when you pick the strawberries. Making each quart cost $19.00, if you pick one quart. We left. We went to a nearby farm where it cost us $6.50 for an already-picked quart of their strawberries. We will never, and I really mean never, go to Lookout Farm again.

Just a few years ago this used to be a fun day for the family. Now it's an overpriced frustrating experience. Went strawberry picking (Apple picking experience similar) and $12 Just to get in and $7 per quart, shamefull I will never go back and in my opinion, i hope others will avoid also. They miss the point with excessive greed by being closest to boston/metro west. I'll drive farther next time

We were excited to find a place that already had strawberry picking, so we went on over to South Natick. Upon arriving, we discovered that it was $12 each just to enter the area, plus another $7 per quart of strawberries. For people without little kids to enjoy the playground area, this was bank robbery. To make it worse, you have to take a train out to the fields where you pick berries - which would have been fine, if the train had been running on the every 10 minute schedule they told us about. Instead, we were out there for over half an hour in the very hot sun before we gave up and walked a long way back. Dehydrated and annoyed, there wasn't even a water fountain or a place to buy a bottle of water. Maybe for some people the $12 each fee would be justified, but we won't be coming back.
