With Halloween just weeks away, now is the time to visit your local farm and pick out your pumpkin! A thrilling tradition for children young and old, finding the perfect pumpkin is a marvelous activity for the whole family to enjoy.
Local pumpkin patches across Durham Region are currently open, and are welcoming families to pick out their pumpkins! Be sure to stick around to enjoy the many additional activities planned for children. Each farm offers something unique and different, such as hay rides, corn mazes, and so much more!
Local farms provide endless family friendly fun, and acres of pumpkins in all shapes, sizes, and colours, ready to bring home and carve into front-porch masterpieces.
So you’ve gutted your pumpkin, now what? There are so many possibilities! Bake a pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice muffins, or roast the seeds to enjoy a delightfully savoury snack.
