The Special Roadside Farm Feeling at Phantom Farms in Cumberland, RI

Article and Photo by Eric H.

Phantom Farms might have a slightly menacing name, but you'll feel quite relaxed and refreshed visiting this friendly Cumberland, RI, apple orchard and farm stand.

With cornstalks, rocking chairs, deep orange pumpkins and colorful flowers gracing its wide front porch and adjoining snack deck, Phantom Farms creates a perfect New England country roadside stand atmosphere that gets even better once inside. The store features baked goods, cider, bags of fresh-picked apples, pies, cream and butter fudge, flowers, and jams. A current special is the pumpkin mousse roll! We personally recommend the pumpkin scones, fresh blueberry pie, and moon pies with cream stacked to seemingly the moon!

Phantom Farms, located in the pleasant northern Rhode Island countryside, also features a garden center, flower shop, gift shop and a spectacular fall time pumpkin patch with colorful pumpkins, gourds and squash of all sizes.

The 2008 apple season has ended at Phantom Farms, but this terrific destination is open all year with its tasty and tasteful merchandise. Phantom Farms also offers a wonderful variety of seasons events, which we have posted here, with permission from Phantom Farms!

Phantom Farms is one of the nicest farm stands we've visited in New England. The management and staff are also very pleasant, taking great pride in their business and its customer service. There's a special feeling you get when visiting that makes it a preferred New England farm stand travel destination for us -- noteworthy, given all the great farm stands in this region.
