18th-Century Purity Farms at the Hall Homestead
Paul and Jo-Ann Desrochers grow vegetables, peaches, plums, and nectarines, but they have a special love of heirloom apples–nearly 90 varieties, all grown without pesticides. You’ll find ‘Westfield Seek-No-Further’ (a Massachusetts native), ‘Newtown Pippin’, and the wondrous ‘Hidden Rose’, whose bland green-brown skin gives way to bright fuchsia flesh that tastes of raspberries. Open Saturday afternoons in the fall. 156 Plainfield Pike Road, Plainfield, CT. 860-564-2154; facebook.com/pages/18th-Century-Purity-Farms/114561708617136
