Countryside Orchard: Colorful, Plentiful, and Delicious!

Lake View Orchards in Lanesboro, Massachusetts, just happens to be a  favorite place to visit.

Whenever in that area, a stop for a hunk of mouthwatering, delicious Vermont cheddar cheese is in order. It's cut off of a huge round that sits under glass and the cheese, alone, is worth the trip to Lake View Orchards.

Tangy, melt-in-the-mouth goodness is found in every bite!   Melted, with tomatoes, on a piece of toasted multi grain bread, this cheese is a winner.

When fall comes, and Lake View Orchards close for the season, it's always sad to say "bye bye" to that yummy cheese.

Fresh baked goods are offered every day, too. Can you imagine slicing into a raspberry pie, fresh from the oven?

There's a variety of cookies, including chocolate chip, and different flavored turnovers. The donuts, (cider in the fall), look absolutely yummy.

 If all the baked goods are too fattening, one can always buy fresh berries or sweet cherries, peaches, or whatever fruit is growing at the moment.

How about a nice jug of Massachusetts real maple syrup? You'll definitely find that here. Real syrup tastes so much better than supermarket varieties that have added chemicals. Mmmmmm.  Pancakes sound good right about now!

The Orchards are a pick-your-own operation, too. Cherries, raspberries, peaches, apples, and so on are available for picking. Consumers who prefer already picked have that option, too.

The farm stand sits against scenery that looks like a piece of heaven. Just to stand and look at the bucolic scenery makes the trip out to the Lake View Orchard worthwhile.

Here's a photo taken right behind the main building:

Car loaded up, mission accomplished, it's time to head down the road once again. Bye bye Lake View Orchards. Until next time....                                                                                                                

On the way home, visitors pass this breathtaking scenery. New England has got to be among the most beautiful places on earth!

I agree New England is beautiful.

Okay we do have Orchards here too - not with cheese - but lots and lots of apples and apple dishes.

Oh wow! I am trying to not eat as much today and then I see these yummy pictures of food! This place is beautiful especially that last picture! There was a place in upper New York state that we would visit each summer when I lived back in PA.

Beautiful! and so yummy and fresh goodies to get! You are so lucky. There aren't any close by orchards. One has to drive a long way from the city to get to one. Fortunately, the farm people are willing to travel the distance to bring daily to the local markets (almost one for each zone, sometime two or three; Guatemala City is divided in zones, 1 through 25) providing the freshness of delicious fruit and vegetables.
Thanks for sharing! NE seems indeed to be a wonderful place.
have a great day!

Apples are my very favorite fruit. In the summer I love all the fresh berries that are avaiable at great prices. Just this week I had blackberries, raspberries and blueberries but I ALWAYS buy my apples..yummy! I'd be at that orchard daily if I lived anywhere near there!
