Northborough – Every autumn, busloads of enthusiastic schoolchildren fill the parking lot at Tougas Family Farm, 234 Ball St. in Northborough. While there, children and families enjoy wagon rides into the orchard where Honeycrisp, Macoun, McIntosh, Gala, Cortland and Mutsu apples are ripe and ready for picking. Additionally, the farm boasts a barnyard, a playground and a country kitchen complete with farm fresh homemade baked goods, ice cream and apple cider donuts.
