In 1651, Belkin Family Lookout Farm opened in Natick, Massachusetts, and everyone has been hard at work there ever since. It’s among the nation’s oldest working farms, and a popular place to buy fresh produce and pick your own fruit in season.
The farm has an 180-acre orchard with more than 65,000 trees and plans to add 14 varieties of hops. Starting in 2015, the farm started making hard ciders from apples in its orchard, and in September 2017, expanded to craft beers when The Lookout Taproom opened.
Belkin Family Lookout Farm produces seven varieties of hard cider and five beers: Hayloft (American Kolsh), Harvest Day (American IPA), Natick Nectar (Peach Belgian Wit), First Cut (American Stout), and Barn Door (Belgian Tripel).
The Lookout Taproom, located at 89 Pleasant Street South in Natick, is open 3-10 p.m. Wednesday-Friday, noon-10 p.m. Saturday, and noon-6 p.m. Sunday. For more information, visit the Lookout Taproom page, call (508) 653-1178, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
