Black Rabbit Farm

3 sites · RVs, Tents10 acres · Southwick, MA
Black Rabbit Farm is not only a beautiful oasis, but a fully operational 10 acre farm. Situated at the foot of the Berkshires, the farm is home to a small orchard, vineyard, and garden space. We take pride in creating a sustainable environment for all our production, based on what the land has to offer. Small greenhouse spaces create year-round production. Rocky hillside will develop a significant "terroir" for our grapes. Even adopted cats prowl the fields to reduce small animal populations. The views are to die for and the easy access to Rte 91 and the Mass Pike will make your trip an easy one for all involved. Visit our gallery farmstore, open Friday-Sunday, and find local punk crafts, clothing, cut flowers, heirloom vegetables, CBD products, and more!
