Here are 7 amazing pumpkin patches to visit near Toronto.

DOWNEY’S FARM

Of course, we’ve got to start with one of the most iconic pumpkin patches near the city. If you’ve scrolled through Instagram in the fall, chances are you’ve seen a photo (or twelve) of this place. They’re known for their sprawling pile of pumpkins outside their farm building. But they’ve also got tractor rides, a corn maze, and apple picking.

HUTCHINSON FARM

Head out to Burlington to take advantage of this gorgeous spot. This family-owned farm prides itself on its fresh produce that’s picked daily. You’ll always get the richest flavours out of what you find here. So we recommend choosing this spot if you’re planning on baking a pumpkin pie.

ANDREW’S FARM MARKET & WINERY

Want a little wine with your pumpkin patch? You’ve come to the right place. At Andrew’s Farm Market and Winery you can have some wholesome fall fun and, well, some less than wholesome fun as well. Stop by and sample their delicious wines (made from fresh fruit on the farm) before roaming the grounds. Did someone say boozy pumpkin patch exploring?

APPLEWOOD FARM WINERY

Fun fact about this spot, it was one of the shooting locations for Canada’s pride and joy Schitt’s Creek! You’ll recognize the sprawling grounds as the site of “Herb Ertlinger Winery,” where Moira shoots her infamous wine commercial in season one and where she and David revisit in season six. Oh, and they’ve got a pretty awesome pumpkin patch as well.

LINTON’S FARM MARKET

Last but not least we’ve got Linton’s Farm Market. These gorgeous grounds make for a wonderful place to spend an afternoon.
