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.

If you like to entertain, even a large kitchen can get congested, especially if you're busy preparing and serving food. Adding a butler's pantry can be a stylish solution.

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 🍃
