Aldor Acres Family Farm

We love this spot because they have 80 acres of farmland for you to experience. And this year they’re offering two options for pumpkin picking experiences. You can either walk through or drive-thru to select your perfect pumpkin. And either way, we think you’ll have a great time.

When: Through October 31
Where: 24990 84th Ave, Langley
Cost: $10+

Harris Pumpkin Patch

This pumpkin picking spot is a feel-good one because they donate 50% of proceeds to their local food bank to help those in need. So you can pick pumpkins and feel good about it! And you can pick your perfect one from the field or grab one that’s been pre-picked.

When: Starting October 13, Monday-Sunday 9 am-dusk
Where: 24227 Dewdney Trunk Rd, Maple Ridge
Cost: Free admission

Willow View Farms

And finally, if you want a huge variety head to Willow View. Because they have over 50 varieties of pumpkins to choose from. And some of those varieties happen to be giant pumpkins. So if you want to go really big this year, do it here.

When: Through October 31
Where: 288 McCallum Rd, Abbotsford
