Places to stop between Boston and Portland

We're driving up to Portland for the weekend but want to make stops along the way, either on the way there or back. I'm looking for really good farms (with pick-your own, nice farm store, etc.) quality cafes/lunch spots, bakeries, even a small town if there is a fun one. Boston to Portland is straight up 95, so these spots would ideally be not more than 20 minutes off of 95. Any suggestions?

ISO Plugra Butter in Massachusetts, the sad story of its TJ disappearance

Dairy Bar!!!! The Dairy Bar in Davis Square always has Plugra. I buy it there a couple times a month and they have tons of other awesome dairy products, mostly local.

Anniversary at Oleana. Tasting menu or regular menu?

Agree completely with greenzebra that the veg tasting menu is too much for one person. So that plus a few pret a mangers is perfect. When I went, I loved: whipped feta, spinach falafel, and ricotta and bread dumplings. Everything else that I liked I don't see on the current menu. But everything was fantastic. I highly highly recommend it.

Soup in Harvard Square

Petsi Pie's on Putnam Ave. They had an awesome really hearty roast tomato and eggplant soup on Monday. Others include Apple, Butternut Squash, and Sweet Potato Bisque. Vegan too.
