Tired of the city? Well, the relaxing countryside isn't so far away - it's as close as Swansea, Massachusetts!
We have alot to offer here at Simcock Farm, particularly from May through October. The animals are here for you to watch and feed; there's a super country vegetable stand and a wonderful, treat-filled ice cream stand.
The Farm Animals
Our animals include cows, a donkey, goats, rabbits, chickens and more...let's not forget Rascal, the beloved resident pooch of the place. You can watch them laze and graze, but, their curiosity usually gets the best of them as they come over to visit you. (Go to "Favorite Critters" for a closer look.)
The Country Vegetable Stand
Our stand not only has our own delicious produce, but also added items such as baked goods, pickled goods, eggs, and drinks.
Make sure you stop by at harvest time for our excellent selection of pumpkins and squash, flowers and harvest decorations.
We also, are known for our 'pick-your-own' plum tomatoes and our hot portuguese peppers, available by the pound or the bushel.
The Ice Cream Stand
Who can resist the lure of a New England ice cream stand during a Sunday afternoon drive? We have a great selection of ice cream flavors...how about a cone of blueberry or moose tracks? We also serve sugar-free and lowfat frozen yogurts and ice cream. Take the family out for a cone of a classic favorite, like orange pineapple, rum raisin or frozen pudding. Our sundaes include brownie sundaes, p'nut butter cup sundaes and strawberry shortcake sundaes. Malts, frappes and specialty smoothies which are gluten-free and lactose-free, are also available. Try a great drink - our awesome Italian coffee! We even have special ice cream for your own 'beloved resident pooch.'
