Phantom Farms Embodies the Classic New England Farm Stand
Phantom Farms in Cumberland, R.I. embodies the classic New England farm stand, especially when it dresses up in its fall attire.
With cornstalks and pumpkins on its wide outdoor front porch, leaves scattered around the welcoming rocking chairs, giant pumpkins on the perimeter and the reflection of foliage in its storefront windows, Phantom Farms seems more welcoming than the most welcoming proverbial grandmother’s house. Inside gets even better with the sweet smells from the bakery, a gift shop that stays away the tackiness that undermines so many others and a flower shop. What brings most people to Phantom Farms, however, are the apple orchards with “pick your own” apples daily. The apples trees seem to get picked over earlier than most, so call ahead for the latest updates at (401) 333-2240.
One of the greatest joys of visiting Phantom Farms is sampling its delicious pumpkin mousse roll — so good it was featured a while back on the Food Network! It goes quite well with a cup of freshly squeezed apple cider.
Every weekend in the fall, Phantom Farms features tractor driven hayrides, face painting, arts & crafts, a burlap maze, hot apple crisp, live music and more. It’s a really an ideal New England fall travel destination, set in the heart of a picturesque semi-rural region of northern Rhode Island.
