Owned and operated by a former golf course superintendant, Grassmaster Plus's lawn whisperers lavish plant life with TLC. A five-step lawn-care program pampers greenswards with five applications of fertilizer and four applications of herbicide. A pre-emergent crabgrass treatment stunts weeds before they sprout. Then, a granular fertilizer feeds hungry grass roots a slow-release nitrogen buffet, endowing lawns with the nutrients they need to grow lush and full. Finally, an herbicidal spot treatment knocks out broadleaf weeds such as clover and dandelions. Spaced six weeks apart, treatments that begin now-ish will continue through the fall, ensuring that Turkey Claus will be impressed with your lawn's upkeep when he stops by to leave giblets and stuffing at your doorstep.

When the Connors established their farm in 1904, they did so on land that already had 300 years worth of farming invested in its soil. At the time, the Connors ran a truck farm–meaning, rather than stuffing parsnips and carrots into mailing envelopes, they trucked all their crops to Boston to be sold. In the mid-1950s, the family adjusted to the changing times, and began selling sweet corn from a roadside stand right on the property. The new plan proved successful: visitors have flocked to the farm en masse ever since.
Today, with the help of its 140 acres of fertile land, Connors Farm continues to fill bellies with the freshest vegetables and fruits available. No, really: the family only sells corn on the day it is picked. In addition to cultivating a long list of crops–the farm produces tomatoes, strawberries, squash, and pumpkins, among others–the family maintains an equally lengthy index of family attractions. That includes an annual cornfield in fall, as well as a peach festival with music, hayrides, and face painting.
Families descend upon Goss Farm’s rolling fields filled with ripening vegetables and farm animals for sundry delightful autumn activities. With a path trimmed and cut to represent the loving logo of Children's Hospital Boston, a nurse cradling a child, the 5-acre corn MAiZE tests visitors' navigational skills with labyrinth-like twists and turns, which disorient guests more effectively than guzzling a bucket of cough syrup. Additionally, Goss Farm will donate a portion of the proceeds from the weekends of September 24th and October 15th to the Children's Hospital of Boston.
