Derby Ridge Farm is a 5th generation apple orchard located in Stow, Massachusetts. The farm was originally purchased by the Derby Family in January 1910. With the addition of the land purchased in 1947, the farm consists of just over 75 acres. The family settled in Stow in the early 1700’s and has continued the fruit growing legacy ever since.

Derby Ridge Farm, or “Derby’s,” grows over 30 varieties of our own fresh apples, peaches, pears, nectarines, and plums. Derby’s offers local honey, jams, jellies and unique gifts. We also offer seasonal products including local vegetables, pumpkins, gourds, cranberries, Christmas trees, and wreaths. During fall weekends we make our own homemade fudge, cider donuts and other baked goods.

The Derby Ridge Farm family aims to provide high quality fruit using minimal pesticides. We are an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) orchard and use ONLY unrestricted sprays. We focus on the products and offer the public an authentic old-fashioned farm stand atmosphere.

    1. Hello Laura,
      Thank you for considering our orchard for your wedding party. We are sorry to say we do not have the accommodations to host a party at this time. Another small orchard in town that may offer what you are looking for is Carver Hill Orchard or perhaps Nashoba Valley Winery. Best of luck!!


    1. Hi Sofia, thank you for your message. Unfortunately we do not offer P-Y-O at this time. The good news is you have many local options! Let us know if you have any trouble finding one or would like a suggestion. Good luck!
