Hayrides the name of the game at Rondriso Farms General Store and Pumpkin Patch

Nothing says you’re at a pumpkin patch more than seeing the patch from a hayride. With COVID measures in place, many of our local patches have postponed the hayride option during this season. The only exceptions that come to mind are Richmond Country Farms and this family operated farm—Rondriso Farms General Store and Pumpkin Patch in Guildford, Surrey.

The Tamis family has been a prominent name in the BC Farming community since 1958. It wasn’t until 2002 when Ron and Pam Tamis took the reins at Rodrisco and began growing a variety of vegetables and even a pumpkin patch—which is now a local children’s favourite for hayrides offering an authentic pumpkin patch experience.

Being a little tractor-obsessed, I knew that after seeing my friend Jessy and her son ride the tractor in style, I just had to take my 2-year old Griffy here, and boy was he amused.

Special Notes

  • I’ve been told that it’s more cost efficient to pick your own pumpkin from the patch versus buying the ones cleaned and prepared at the General Store.
  • Don’t forget to pick up some Rondriso Farm colouring sheets before heading out—what a nice touch!
