Thursday Doors


My choice of doors this week isn’t anything too special, but where it is located is.

Emery Farm has been owned and operated by the same family in Durham New Hampshire since 1655 – 360 years!

EmeryFarm Collage

They provide our community with a family farm environment where you can pick your own strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, apples, pumpkins, participate in a hayride and a corn maze, or pick out a special Christmas tree.

Behind the door to their farm store, they sell products from seventeen local companies including fresh food items and hand-made gifts.


This was a favorite destination for my grandkids when they were younger. We’d shop for fresh fruits and vegetables while they visited the animals and played on the various toys.

If you want to order a New England Crisp, Blueberry, Pumpkin, Maple Walnut Pumpkin, Fudgy Turtle or Pecan pie for Thanksgiving, just give them a call.

They’re a full service farm. 🙂

  1. Such a nice place…similar to one or two of the places around here…pies and critters! 🙂

  2. Judy, 360 years is impressive! This is exactly the sort of place I’d go if there were any near us. This Saturday there are supposed to still be a few vendors at the farmer’s market spot in Naperville and I plan to get more apples. I think that’s the end of it until next year, though, which always makes me sad.

    I love places like this! We have a few of them here and it’s a tradition to take the kids and grandkids for their pumpkins and apples. Of course, in 1655, I think Michigan was nothing but a pile of weeds, so you’ve got us beat by a few hundred years!

    Looks like a wonderful place. We have a similar place just down the road in Manchester. From Fall through early spring, that is where I get my apples.

    Oh, how wonderful! I wish we had a year-round farmers market — there’s been some loose talk about its happening, but it hasn’t happened yet. Looks like a beautiful place — or maybe you just take beautiful pictures! 🙂

  11. There is certainly a story behind (or in front of) every door! This farm reminds me of what we have nearby in Apple Hill 🙂

    Oh Judy! I am a big fan of long standing businesses and farm families who feature fresh produce and homemade foods, including fresh pies! Yummy! I would like the New England crisp and the pecan pie. I go to Cracker Barrel restaurant where they have a pumpkin streusel and apple pecan streusel pie. 🙂 Not homemade, but tasty.
    I also think your grandchildren will remember their visits here, possibly someday taking their own children here. 🙂

    What a great farm, you can’t beat home grown produce…..some of the pecan pie would be lovely!
