The Fall is an extra special time to visit a farm.
A lot of the vegetables are harvested in the fall and farmers work on getting their fields ready for winter. It is the only time of year to eat an apple right off the tree, to find the perfect pumpkin in the patch or stock up on squash. Farmers work with Mother Nature all year round to bring the best to you.
Take some time to explore the farms in your area or go for a drive and find some new ones. Many on-farm markets are open year round, depending on the products they produce and offer. Click on the ‘Find a Farm’ button and explore farms nearby or farms that offer unique foods to try. Grab some sunscreen and your hat and get out in the countryside. Explore rural Ontario and the many farmers who live there. It is always a great opportunity for some fresh air, fresh experiences and lots of fun.
