Come enjoy some fall-time fun in Amherst! Start your day with the classic fall activity of apple- or pumpkin-picking at the Small Ones Farm, only a 10-minute drive from the Inn on Boltwood. The Small Ones Farm is a 63-acre family-owned farm in South Amherst that offers a variety of peaches, pears, plums, berries, and over 50 types of apples. The farm’s stand will be open in the fall to feature their local produce as well as fresh honey, apple cider, vinegar, and fruit pies. Drive along the Connecticut River Scenic Byway to enjoy the beautiful Pioneer Valley foliage at its peak. Make a road trip out of it as you stop by some attractions along the way, such as the Amherst College Mead Art Museum. Don’t forget to pick up some tasty Cider Donuts at Atkins Farm.
