Pumpkin Patch

October 1st to 31st

- Family Drop-In -

Admission by donation. Donations are used for special projects that are not in the regular budget. Last year we built the new Chalet Poulet. The year before, we invested in Blade Dryers for the two washrooms. Our next project will be automatic waterers for the animals, to reduce our water consumption on the farm.
Explore a magical farming oasis in the city. Relax, hang out. Grab a book in the Potting Shed Lounge Library, or play in the Straw Pile; Meet the goats, sheep, chickens and horses. Pick a pumpkin from our Old Apple Orchard and sit by the campfire.

Some of our pumpkins are grown on site and some we pick up from our friend's farm (Westham Island Herb Farm). Most Pumpkins have already been harvested and are spread around the orchard for easy choosing.
Please feel free to pitch in! Pick up a rake or manure fork and help us in our daily tasks. Just ask a Farmer what needs doing.
