Friday morning started like a Monday, I forgot my cellphone on my way to work, had many projects going on at once and needed the extra espresso to get it all in order – by the time I left the office I was more than ready to visit the opening of the Lookout Farm Taproom.
Lookout Farm is known for it’s ‘pick your own’ produce. Just about everyone I know has brought their kids to take the train ride around the orchard to pick apples, pears, peaches, strawberries, pumpkins, etc. They have a large playground at the top of the hill with a petting zoo.
And now, with the recently released Lookout Farm Hard Cider, there’s something for the adults.
The cider is delicious, like fresh crisp apples. The taproom itself is beautiful, constructed from reclaimed wood from the barns, apple crates, and part of a 1957 Ford tractor.
We ordered a flight to sample each one of the ciders on tap – the signature Farmhouse Blend, a summer cider with ginger and lemongrass, a hops blend, and an oak blend. We also ordered the soft pretzels and a flatbread. The charcuterie boards from New England Charcuterie looked incredible but you have to save some things for next time.
