llandale Farm, the last working farm close to Boston (squeezed between a cemetery and a golf course), can’t get more wholesome. There are hayrides, scarecrow-making workshops, cider-pressing, pruning and canning demonstrations—all the things farms do, all year. That’s on top of its farmstand, which sells the 30-acre farm’s organic beets, tomatoes, arugula, carrots, garlic, fennel, and lettuce, along with other locally grown and made products, including pies, cheeses, breads, nuts, pastas, cookies, sauces, honey, coffee, flowers, and plants. There’s even a summer education program for kids. Tuder
