Meadows Family Farm, a quiet gem ideal for babies & toddlers

Big pumpkin patches, while fantastic in their scope and offerings, can be overwhelming for the quieter, gentler set. We talked to local mom Connie Hobbis, who is taking her family on a pumpkin patch tour around the Lower Mainland to discover lesser known hobby farms in support of our local BC Farmers.

They recently visited Meadows Family Farm in Maple Ridge. Here’s what she had to say: “Leanne and her family started this farm in 2015 with a few bunnies and chicks for an Easter event and evolved from there. Their mantra is to ‘create a place where families and friends can spend time together, have fun, experience a little bit of the farm life and create memories that will last a lifetime.’”
