In 1732, John Mack came to Londonderry, NH, from Londonderry, Ireland with his new wife, Isabella Brown. The area, then known as Nutfield, contained a plot of land belonging to Matthew Thornton (later to sign the Declaration of Independence). The Macks settled, grew potatoes and other crops, raised cattle, and later, grew apples.
Today, Mack’s Apples (also known as Moose Hill Orchards – that name is another story) is a farm of approximately 400 acres – 100 of which are dedicated to apples. A terrific group of folks run the farm, and they’re always ready to welcome you to Londonderry, home to four fine family-run apple farms, making it an epicenter of New Hampshire apple production. Here, you’ll find some of the finest fruit in New England.
Mack’s Apples features a wonderful farm stand to browse through, complete with beautiful apples, tree-ripe peaches, several varieties of pears, pumpkins, and squash, as well as local maple syrup, pies, and honey (to name a few things), and New Hampshire hospitality. You can pick your own apples in any of a number of different orchards, some with lookout platforms and picnic places. Mack’s has upwards of 30 acres of pumpkins to pick, with fields planted close to every orchard. Enjoy a complete and fun Pick Your Own experience! Mack’s Apples Pick Your Own has been twice selected as the People’s Choice award winner in the Best of New Hampshire edition of New Hampshire Magazine.
Plan to join us for harvest! Fall is an amazing time in New Hampshire. The fields, the woods, and of course, the apples are beautiful. In the spring, while the gang is feverishly prepping orchards and fields, Mack’s Ice Cream opens, with delicious,locally-made Richardson’s Ice Cream.
So c’mon and see us! Stroll through the farm stand and experience the glorious smell and wonderous sight of a room filled with fine fruit. Find out how an apple tastes when the warmth of the sun is still in it. We look forward to meeting you!
