Now and Then...
Belkin Family Lookout Farm is one of the oldest continuously working farms in the United States. The importance of farming cannot be overlooked because, “food feeds us all.” Lookout Farm strives to share the agricultural experience with our guests by combining agricultural education with outdoor entertainment. In addition to our fruit U-pick, Lookout Farm grows fresh local fruit for wholesale to many regional restaurants and markets as well as farm fresh hard cider and beer.
Three centuries before Joan and Steve Belkin took stewardship of Lookout Farm in 2005, Natick was just a small settlement west of Boston.
