Halloween fun on the farm

Looking for a fun family outing to the pumpkin patch, or something scarier to get you and your friends in the Halloween mood? A handful of our vendors are offering harvest and Halloween activities this year on their farms – everything from hay rides and apple cider making to pumpkin cannons and haunted corn mazes. Read on for more details, if you dare


Would you want to meet this guy in a corn maze after dark?

Maan Farms claim to have the “Scariest Corn Maze in Canada” – full of gore, nightmarish installations, and plenty of opportunity to get scared out of your wits. They also offer much tamer flashlight corn maze adventures, wagon rides, and a giant pumpkin patch to hunt down the perfect jack o’lantern. More details on their Halloween activities at maanfarms.com.

The Applebarn in Abbotsford is truly an all-in-one fun on the farm destination. Their dizzying list of attractions include a Corn Quest Maze and pumpkin patch, pony rides, zipline, and educational activities like apple cider pressing and bee hive viewing. A full list of attractions, including info on dates and times can be found at tavesfamilyfarms.com.

If you’re looking for a good old fashioned pumpkin patch that’s not too far from the city, Rondriso Farms in Surrey has some of the biggest, best quality pumpkins around! Ride out to the patch on the hay wagon to pick your favourites, and stop in at their country store for a large selection of gourds, cornstalks, hay bales, and winter veggies.
