If you’ve done all the apple and pumpkin picking there is to do, here’s an autumn activity you’ve probably never heard of before. A beer-picking farm is opening up this weekend just outside of Toronto and you’ll get to pluck some ripe cans of lager fresh from the trees.
Homestead Orchards in Sutton is transforming into the Coors Organic Beer Farm for the day this Saturday, so you’ve only got one day to fill your basket.
There’s lots to do on the farm too, like hanging in the Beer Farm Lounge, taking some photos on a tractor, filling up on comfort food, partaking in some fun activities like Cornhole and Giant Jenga, and downing some refreshing organic beer.
Your ticket to the event will come with a limit of 6 cans of Coors Organic that you can pick from the beer trees and take home with you, plus a complimentary cold beer served at the lounge.
You can visit the farm in groups of 4 and you’ll want to arrive 15 minutes before your picking start time.
And if you’d like to do some more traditional picking, there’s an apple orchard nearby that you can be directed to after your time at the beer farm, in addition to all of the other apple orchards that are open for the season right now in the GTA.
Given how much Toronto loves beer festivals and apple picking in the fall, this combination is pretty genius!
