Comments from a visitor, October 28, 2007: "Carver Hill is one of the nicest pick-your-own establishments in the area. The staff is always friendly and willing to help. The best thing about Carver Hill is that it is, to a certain extent, "off the beaten path," so usually there won't be many other people. It's a more peaceful and less crowded alternative to the nearby Honeypot Hill Orchards. They also have an ice cream counter, and sometimes you can get nice, warm apple crisp."

They had a TON of apples (many different varieties and LOTS of trees. There isn't much besides the actual orchard, but they do have a tractor (actually more like a loader) that can pull you around and my daughter loved that. If you're looking simply for picking good apples, this is a perfect place to go. And prices were reasonable too. They also have a stand that sells lots of goodies but that is up the road and across Route 27 - Don't miss it! We got a great looking pumpkin from there and a couple of fantastic pies. I definitely recommend Dowse Orchards!"

(UPDATED: October 18, 2010) (UPDATED: September 05, 2012)
A visitor writes on September 05, 2012: "Can hardly wait for the new season, We absolutely had the best time last year. So fun for all my children. Can't believe there is a place like this so close to home. Feels like we went to new hampshire, without using all my gas. Pumpkins were plentiful and we got some really great ones. The staff was friendly and professional. Going with my extended family this year. Great pictures and scenery. "
A visitor writes on November 07, 2010: "I went to this farm and was sooooo dissapointed. There were no farm animals at all as suggested on the site. In fact it was more like an open field than a farm. The staff were unfriendly,uninviting and just flat out ignorant. I asked about the hayride and was told it was shut down" for the day mind you the lady was just sitting there doing nothing she just didn't want to drive the tractor and the tractor was literally feet away from her UGH! My 4 year old was bummed. Pumpkins were scattered throughout "the field". Just a mess and a poor excuse for a farm. BLECK! Don't waste your time you and your children will be dissapointed!"
A visitor writes on September 12, 2008: "I lived in Randolph Ma which is next door to Holbrook and for the longest time did not know this farm existed! When i found it my daughter was about 6-7 and we had never picked a pumpkin from a patch before, it was only something she had read about in books. It was such an awesome experience to share with her. They give you a little red wagon with a plastic knife to cut the pumpkin off the vine. they have hayrides and other pumpkins which are painted or have already been pulled from the vine. I also took my little cousins. They were so excited. I ended up coming home with about 10 pumpkins! Great place, needs more advertisement, its really nice!"
A visitor writes on October 20, 2008: "Went for the first time with the family and had a great time. It seemed like all the pumpkins were off the vine so we will have to come sooner next year. We still got to pick our pumpkin out of the ones in the patch and they let us have our dog(leashed) who was amazed with the chickens. Definitely recommend!"

A visitor writes on October 23, 2010: "We went today and were a little disappointed that the pumpkin patch picking was not really cutting pumpkins in a field - most of them had been places around to look that way. So with 4 adults and 2 kids, we had to pay $12 for a short hay ride to what we could have picked off the farm stand shelves. Otherwise, the playground was decent and the farm animals are fun."
