Here are a few shots from a recent trip to the Belkin Family Lookout Farm in Natick, MA, where my boyfriend Matt and I took to picking our own peaches, plums, and nectarines. I would have put nectarines in the title of this post, but I was really liking the alliteration I had going there.
This place was adorable, it had a little train (not an actual train, more like a tram with a train look to it) that would take you to different parts of their farm and had several stops along the way to pick different kinds of fruit. Though Matt and I usually frequent Honey Pot Hill Orchards for our apple picking in the fall, this place was a great alternative for picking summer fruits. I also learned after going there that apparently this farm is actually one of the oldest continuous working farms in the country. It has been used as a farm in one person’s ownership or another since 1650. So there’s your little fun fact for the day.
One thing that I was captivated by was that the farm had these pathways for the trolleys that were covered with grape vines. As a photographer, all I could think was wow this would be a beautiful place for engagement photos or a place for a portrait session. So maybe in the future I will be lucky and get a client who might want to take photos here 🙂
Stay tuned next week to see a recipe that I made with some of the scrumptious fruit I picked at this orchard.
