Great local products and wonderful service:-) I purchased maple cream and maple syrup online and picked up at Ioka farm. My order was ready when I arrived and the products were beautifully packaged in glass jars. I’ll return when I visit the area again.

We always stop off at Ioka Valley Farms when we're in the Berkshires. We particularly enjoy the Maple Cream, which we don't typically see anywhere else. Pre-pandemic, we were able to take a tour of the sugar house, although it wasn't in operation at the time. Best time to go is early spring, just as the snow is melting, because that's when they tap the trees.

I have been going to maple syrup places every spring for decades. Honestly thought I knew pretty much everything about the process. Guess not. This place taught me a lot -- was the most interactive maple place I have ever been to. They allow you to wander through the building looking at the various pieces of equipment in progress with workers along the way to answer any questions you may have. The best part is the room that gives out samples of maple candy, maple coated popcorn (amazing!), and maple cotton candy. They even give everyone a small bowl of syrup which magically turns into maple fudge after much stirring. Great activity for kids -- and adults. The restaurant is perfectly casual with a really great selection of food items. Just put your name on the list when you first arrive at the farm so you can wander around and enjoy the other activities while waiting for your table to be ready. Totally enjoyed this place. If I lived closer, I'd stop by for breakfast or lunch often. Great place for couples and families.

Stopped in to purchase some Maple syrup. They offered us a tour. A very enthusiastic older woman took us through the entire process of how the sap is collected and turned into Maple syrup. She was absolutely great! She then let us sample all the grades, explaining how they are graded and what they are best used for. She let us taste maple lemonade and then gave us the recipe. We gathered the items we wanted to purchase and then noticed they sold eggs. The lovely lady explained that next to the store was a barn and they have goats which we could feed and chickens. The eggs they were selling were gathered that day. Awesome. If you have the opportunity to buy fresh eggs, you really should try them. They look and taste quite different than supermarket eggs. We went into the barn and had a great time with the goats. Our stop to buy syrup turned into a two hour visit. What a great surprise.

We came here in August, thinking it looked like a playground where we might spend an hour. Our kids were two and seven. After four hours, they were still not ready to go! The family has come up with such simple, low-tech fun, it was great to see the kids engaged without all the Disney-like machinery. This is not a place for you if you don't like kids getting dirty or need seat belts for everything your children do. This is old-fashioned fun. A tractor pulling linked radio flyers around the field, a maze made of hay bales, tractor trikes in a barn, petting area, a slide made out of corrugated plastic pipe, pedal-powered go-carts. Picnic area as well as on site cafe. Hay ride in the fall to get pumpkins.
Our first time here we had to return the same week because the kids had so much fun. We have been back several times in summer and fall.
Extremely close to Jiminy Peak. Enjoy!

Think roadside farm offers delicious vegetables at very reasonable prices. Their corn is butter sweet and is some of the best I have ever had. Well worth a visit.

My wife and I enjoyed the Farm. It definitely would be a great outing with young children but us old children had fun too. Pick out a pumpkin, eat some apple cider donuts, and visit the Sugar House. Sample some maple syrup and learn about the different grades of syrup.

Fun place to visit and have a chat with the locals about the "benefits" of Maple Syrup!! The lady we spoke to was in her 70's and rides her bike 10 miles (I may have that number wrong, it may be more) a day. She knew her stuff though and we were all convicted that we should be adding maple syrup to our diets and taking out the sugar!!

We went to Ioka Farm for a maple syrup pancake weekend. There was also a "sugar shack" with syrup being made, and a barn full of farm animals for viewing/visiting. The farm has activities for every season-berry picking, pumpkins, etc. The "farm family" is present and very involved in the activities. They are super friendly, and very helpful.

Breakfast choices involved home-made cake doughnuts with maple glaze, corn muffins,french toast or pancakes, plain, blueberry, or pecan. Sausage or bacon was served on the side. Of course they were served with butter and genuine maple syrup made on the farm! There were also maple desserts and maple candy, sugar, and syrup for sale.
The pancakes were giant, properly cooked-not doughy or flabby, and the pecans and blueberries tasty additions. Sausage was delicious and bacon crispy. We couldn't resist a maple doughnut-yum!
The sugaring-off operation is interesting and well explained.
It was a delicious and filling breakfast, served with a smile, and an interesting little excursion for a sunny winter day. We bought maple syrup to take home as well!

We visit Iowa Farms every time we are in the area. Fresh fruit, crisp vegetables and a pay as you want system make this a perfect stop. We stock up on the fruits and veggies of the season, pet the animals, chat with the owners and then head on home.
