Fall commencing means it is time to enjoy pumpkin flavours, delicious homemade pies, freshly baked farm goods, tractor rides and taking trips to celebrate the change of seasons.
There are several pumpkin patches near Stratford, Kitchener and Guelph where you can enjoy delicious local favours with fresh coffee and go on a hay ride, push pedal carts and more. You can bring the family or even make it a company outing as there is something to do for everyone.
As we all know, this Fall is very different from last year, and many of the local farms are not able to offer all the services and activities that they may have last year. However, all of our featured farms here are still open for business, and now more than ever is a great time to support local farmers.
Here are our suggestions for a wonderful day outing.
This family farm features a 14-acre pick-your-own pumpkin patch, with need to book tickets in advance.
You can however purchase a Farm Fun ticket which includes unlimited access to all attractions, featuring a physically distanced 5-acre corn maze, animal barnyard, jumping pillow, giant peddle cart track, and so much more! You can also upgrade to add a 1 hour campfire experience following your visit, including a private, socially distanced campfire space, hot dog and s’more roasting kit for 5 guests. Very limited tickets available, tickets must be purchased online, no walk-ups permitted.
This pumpkin patch has a Harvest Fun area features a straw maze, Sand Pit, Cedar Spiral, and best of all, a pumpkin ‘chuckin’ area where you can launch mini pumpkins into the air. For events requiring tickets, they must be purchased in advance. Tickets are timed and are good for 1 1/2 hours of fun!

Shantz Family Farm been selling produce from our farm since 1996. What started out as a wheelbarrow full of pumpkins for thier children to sell at the roadside, has turned into a fall destination for many local families, schools, and groups!
This season, Shantz Family Farm will ONLY offer a roadside stand, open for customers for cash purchases. There will be no access to any other activities on the farm.
A short drive from Guelph, in Milton is Springridge Farm. Unfortunately their Fun Farmyard will remain closed to visitors for the remainder of 2020. What isn’t cancelled is this autumn’s amazing harvest.
They will be proudly offering lots of pumpkins, apples, cider, gourds, corn, mums and more. Their bakery is all about making sure your favourites are here, fresh every day.

Using a shade of green in a kitchen works well with so many other elements (bright white, grays, wood textures, marble, brass accents, etc.). Whether you’re considering bringing colour into your kitchen on the cabinets, doors, island or walls, you may want to consider green 🍃
