Pumpkin Patch toronto

Find the perfect pumpkin patch and farm near Toronto

A visit to a pumpkin patch or local farm near Toronto is an October ritual for many. While your neighbourhood grocery store is probably a cheaper option for procuring your seasonal jack-o'-lantern, a pumpkin patch definitely has a more festive atmosphere.

Here are my picks for pumpkin patches and farms to visit near Toronto.

Albion Orchards

This Caledon apple farm and country market sells hundreds of pumpkins in all shapes and sizes. In addition to pumpkin picking you can spend your visit picking apples from their orchard.

Brooks Farms

Located north of Toronto, this Mount Albert farm will charge you $14 to attend their Fall Fun Festival which runs until November 5. With this fee you get access to their Barnyard Playland, pig races, a pumpkin cannon show and much more festive fun.

This Milton farm comes with wagon rides and a field where everyone can select their favourite pumpkin from a tiny 5 lbs. to a massive 80 lbs. They also offer guided tours for $7.50 where you can take in the fall colours on a 90 minute tour around the farm.

Cooper's CSA Farm & Maze

Found in Zephyr this farm has a popular u-pick option where a single pumpkin can be had for $4 or three for $10. The farm also has a 10 acre corn maze and hay climb and wagon rides but you need to pony up a $10 admission fee.
