Apple Picking North of Boston

(photo credit:  Chis Boswell from Getty Images Pro, via Canva)

One of the best things about living in the suburbs North of Boston is getting out and exploring.  We love our town, but it's also fun to take a drive on the weekend and see what other towns have to offer.  We always look forward to apple picking in the Fall!  The cool, crisp air, hayrides, corn mazes, the smell of seasonal farm stand treats, so many things to love!  We've rounded up some of the best places to go apple picking North of Boston, including a link to each farm's website.  As long as there is the promise of cider and donuts at the end, you really can't go wrong!

(From left:  Christine Hurley, Lenny Clarke and Frank Santorelli)

Our team hosted our 5th Annual Client Appreciation Night at Giggles Comedy Club in Saugus.  What a night it was!  Our cheeks hurt from laughing so much!  The night started out with pizza and drinks and ended with a hilarious comedy show featuring seven comics.  Johnny Pizzi did an awesome job MC'ing the show.  

This was a special night to show our appreciation and say “thank you” to our past, current and future clients and to our friends/family for their support.  We especially want to thank our sponsors and trusted vendors:  

We hope everyone had a blast! Thanks again to Giggles Comedy Club for having us and Prince Pizzeria for the yummy food!
