PUMPKIN PATCHES – FALL ACTIVITES FOR FAMILIES

Pumpkin Patches and Farm Orchards are abundant in Halton and our surrounding Regions, providing us with lots of family fun and delicious treats!

Halton Pumpkin Trail

Autumn brings the beautiful changing of leaves and one of our favourite family adventures; taking the kids to the farm! This brings us together with outdoor activities, animals, apple picking, hay rides, gourmet goodies, outdoor mazes and, of course, visiting the path where we select the perfect pumpkin for Halloween.

Visiting the pumpkin patch in quest of the ultimate pumpkin is a fall ritual for thousands of Burlington kids and their families do each year. Here are some tips before you embark on your search for the perfect pumpkin!

  1. Khalloween-pumpkinsnow your final design to ensure you get the right size and shape
  2. Inspect the outside of the pumpkin, checking the flesh is firm everywhere with no soft spots.
  3. The skin should be smooth and the colour uniform.
  4. Many people knock on the shell to hear that hallow sound while checking for ripeness but for carving this is not important.
  5. Sugar pumpkins are the best choice for pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving.

Soon we will see porches and homes across Burlington decorated for the fall season, Thanksgiving, and Halloween. Cornstalks, bales of hay, gourds, pumpkins and mums abound! Don’t miss out on the festivities, check out one of the following local Farms.
