Pumpkin Patch toronto

These are some of the most picturesque pumpkin patches and farms to visit near Toronto

A visit to a pumpkin patch or local farm near Toronto is a fall 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.
