Apple Dumpling with Vanilla Ice Cream at Brookfield Orchards, North Brookfield Mass.

Brookfield Orchards in North Brookfield, Mass., is tucked away in the hills of rural Central Massachusetts, but the drive for an apple dumpling with vanilla ice cream or cheddar cheese is well worth the day trip.

The dumpling is huge and flavorful, the vanilla ice cream thick and creamy. Simply amazing, no other words to describe the combo!

While many make a beeline for the apple dumpling and ice cream, others prefer the dumpling with cheese. This might seem like an odd duo but somehow it works. Knowing that it's not always easy to find a quality cheddar cheese, I personally prefer having it with the dumpling.

Either combo works and the good news is that unlike many other local farms, Brookfield Orchards is open year-round 9 a.m.-5 p.m. You can eat the apple dumpling on a bench in the welcoming garage-like main retail room, although the fall time features an outdoor snack bar.

Known primarily as a fall apple picking destination, Brookfield Orchard also features an excellent country store, which is also open throughout the whole year. If all this sounds good, we recommend reading our feature story on Brookfield Orchards for more information. Hope you to get to go there, it's really a wonderful slice of New England retail, enhanced by the incredible apple dumpling!

Brookfield Orchards is located at 12 Lincoln Rd. North Brookfield MA. Tel (978) 867-6858
