Whether you’ll be picking apples, taking cute pics for Instagram or choosing the perfect pumpkin to take home, there are so many lovable farms to venture through this season. Here’s a list of five wonderful farms you absolutely need to visit!

pine orchards farm (2700 16th side road, king, On)

Pine Orchards Farm is a charming little farm tucked away in King City. With the delicious bakeshop, the homey café and opportunities to pick your own apples, it’s a trip you simply can’t pass up! The shorter apple trees are perfect for kids to pick their own apples. This family-owned farm is perfect for fall photos, especially with their hundreds of gorgeous apple trees and their set-up of perfect pumpkins. My personal favourite at Pine Orchards is the bakeshop that is stocked with freshly baked goodies all year round. Be sure to grab a fresh pumpkin pie and take a stroll through the acres of enchanting apple trees!

downey’s farm market (13682 heart lake road, caledon, On)

Downey’s Farm Market is a fun farm with many unique activities to keep you and your family busy. The farm is famous for its’ yearly Pumpkinfest with wagon rides, cute farm animals and a huge eight-acre corn maze. Alongside the many exciting attractions to keep busy, be sure to check out their market of fresh fruits, veggies and delicious home-baked goods. Not only is Downey’s known for their spectacular farm, but they’ve got an amazing winery too! Their variety of high-quality wines are made from the fresh fruit grown right on the farm, which is perfect for you boozy babes.

riverdale farm (201 winchester street, Toronto, On)

Riverdale Farm is located right in the hustle and bustle of downtown Toronto, but don’t let that undermine the serene trails and cute farm animals. Riverdale Farm is the perfect escape from the city for those who don’t want to travel far. The kilometres of green space and stunning trails guide you past the many farm animals including sheep, cows and horses. As well, you can tour the farm and explore the many history-filled barns and paddocks. If you’re feeling brave enough for the spooky season, you must check out the Necropolis cemetery on site! It’s one of the city’s most historic cemeteries. Otherwise, the duck pond is a wonderful (and less scary) alternative.  If you ever find yourself exploring downtown Toronto this season, be sure to check out Riverdale Farm!

nature’s bounty farm ( 651 Scugog Line 2, Port Perry, On)

Nature’s Bounty Farm is a picturesque apple farm located in Port Perry. The lovely owners, Cathy and Marvin, have planted over 14,000 gorgeous apple trees for the public to pick from. A fan-favourite fall activity is the scenic nature walk, where you can admire the acres of farmland and farm animals including the sheep and the llamas. Nature’s Bounty Farm also offers a charming market where you are welcome to have a picnic and sip some delicious apple cider. If you’re not one to relax, then definitely wander into the dense corn maze or try out their obstacle course. This peaceful farm has something for everyone!

Andrew’s Scenic Acres offers many fun activities and beautiful sights for you to check out this season.
