I have always driven by this place on my way to somewhere else and man, have I been doing myself a disservice. It was amazing. The owner is wonderful and has a great intro for newbies. The $25 fill-the-bag deal is amazing and they have a decent selection of locally raised meats.

I discovered Perkins 2 years ago and have been going back ever since to get the 99.00 cart full of the coolest pumpkins/gourds ever! You also get a full bag of veggies and a canned item... I put up my Fall and Halloween decorations early and so happy to shop local. I deeply respect Donovan for how he has kept the tradition up and keeps things running smoothly. It is not small task to run a small business and keep everything flowing. Ignore the negative reviews - they are completely not correct and over hyped. Lets just be kind and support local... there are certainly enough big box stores. I've turned a few people on to Perkins and will continue to do so... My primary vocation is Director of Quality, Engineering and Release. I have 100's of customers... I can spot good quality and customer service miles away.. I can also identify poor service... there is zero evidence of any poor service.. keep going gang.. you bring back many nostalgic memories of all the farm stands in New England and are the only one that takes me right back home.. Forever customer, Marjie

What an absolutely amazing place. There $25 bag deal is fantastic. You get such a better deal than the farmers market and the store. We will definitely be getting our produce from here from now on. The staff were very friendly and kind.

I can’t say enough good things about this place. The produce is amazing, the atmosphere is amazing, employees are amazing! Donovan is an extremely hard worker and it was very nice to see him around and of course, Ms.Perkins is such a treat and was sure to make us feel right at home.

Open 9:00 am until 8:00 pm. Most of the Orcahard is pet friendly. Parking is past the buildings. Make sure you are watching your GPS, or you will drive right past, but this place is worth stopping. The owner is happy and energetic. His passion for people and produce make for a unique shopping experience! Produce Building- the home of the $25 produce grab bag! Anything you can put in the bag for $25! They have fresh produce, everything from tomatoes, lemons, limes, green beans, corn, sweet potatoes, and so much more! Watermelon 🍉 bins- grab your watermelon mine was juicy and sweet! Green Building- it has soups, lemonade, meats, precooked Bar-BQ, cheese straws and sooooo much more! They have pumpkins 🎃 and 🎄 Christmas trees.

This place is amazing! As soon as I walked in I was greeted and given a history lesson, thank you David. They have a WIDE range of fruits, veggies, honey, butter, ciders and other freshly grown food. They have a $20 deal where you can fill a bag and everything that fits is $20 total. They even have a separate shop with meats. Definitely worth it. I will now come here for my eggs, fruits and veggies for now.

This was my first time going there and I love it! If you're looking for fresh fruits and vegetables this is the place. They also have a store that sells certain meat and other products. Great customer service! Highly recommend!

This place is great. Even if you aren't getting the $20 bag deal (which you should), this is great. Whenever you go you'll find new types of produce as well as the classics. This should be on every local newspaper and TV station for bettering the communities food understanding and overall environment.

Friendly staff ready to greet you and tell you the history of the fruit stand! I did the $20 bag deal and ended up with what would have cost $30 at a grocery store (I added everything up online out of curiosity). Will be returning!

I need to preface that this is a great place to get produce and we shop here all the time, but it was our first time getting watermelon here. The checkout person was rude. She asked what type of watermelon we wanted (red, orange, or yellow) and we asked what's the difference. She said we are essentially blind if we can't tell the difference 🤷‍♀️ Regardless, the watermelon we got was juicy and sweet.

I can always find the freshest produce at Perkins! The owner has created an shopping experience you can’t find anywhere else - it’s definitely worth the trip! I love their house made sorbets and seasonal popsicles too
