Hi All,

I'm looking to get to a pumpkin patch/farm this weekend to grab some beautiful pumpkins and possibly some apples and other goodies for cooking/baking/carving.

I live in Leslieville and know that Chudleigh's in Milton is very popular.

Any other gems I should consider??

Thanks for the help!

    I have been to Applewood Farm for strawberries and thought it was great. They also have pumpkins at this time of year.

    They are located on McCowan in Stouffville

      Springridge, also in Milton, has a Huge Pumpkin Patch:

      If you want a bit of a road trip - the next closest to the west of the GTA is probably Strom's in Guelph:

          Yeah, Strom's is great-it would be a bit of a trip but Guelph is a great little town!

            Guelph is not much further than Milton if you live in Toronto. It's probably another 10 minutes.

          Several places along Heritage Rd. north of Steeles in Brampton--closer than Milton. BTW, you likely won't find PYO.
