Pumpkin Farm

We went to the cheesiest 'pumpkin farm' this afternoon.  I grew up in the Niagara Peninsula...so I can tell you what a farm is...this place was not a farm.  The highlights:  delicious cookies, and my son loved the tractor ride. 

We didn't buy any pumpkins.  They were $10 each for the nice ones.  I will wait until they show up at the grocery store!   Do you know of any good pumpkin farms in Southern Ontario/GTA?    What about apple picking? Any awesome places (that are worth the drive)?

    Chudleigh's is by far my favourite place for apple picking. I've been going there since I was a kid! Its got a climbing tower and farm animals and the best bakery. Definitely pick up some of their apple crumble pie.

  2. We loved Downey's pumpkin farm...don't know if that's the one you went to, but the kids loved it!

  3. We used to go to Andrew's Scenic Acres for pumpkins but agree with Jen that Chudleigh's is great albeit a bit crowded on weekends.

  4. You could try Birtch Farms in Woodstock. I love it there and they have really unique pumpkins - white ones, green ones, speckled ones. Although, I am no farmer...

  5. I like to go out in Flamborough, there are a couple good pumpkin spots on Hwy 5 past Burlington/Waterdown. (Pretty close to where the Christie Antique show takes place actually.) And there's even a corn maze at Hane's just past Flamboro Downs horse track and they have a great pie shop with some other yummy baked goodies.

  7. My family always visits Archibald's in Bowmanville. They also have a winery there, perfect for tastings after a crisp picking session outside!
