Top pumpkin patch picks around Vancouver
Taves Applebarn and Pumpkin Patch
Located in Abbotsford, Taves Applebarn is a favourite for good reason. Not only is there a hayride out to the pumpkin patch with an old tractor for the kids to play on, but the farm has a popular bouncy pillow, corn maze, pumpkin (and corn) cannon, petting zoo, playground, marketplace and pony rides! #boom
333 Gladwin Rd, Abbotsford
Richmond Country Farms, Richmond
Perhaps because of its proximity to Vancouver, Richmond Country Farms is always busy but worth the visit. Try to come at a non-peak period if your schedule allows, or even a drizzly day. There is an undercover hay tent where the kids can frolic, covered wagon rides with sing-along out to the pumpkin patch and a stage area to eat the post-patch apple. Costumed entertainers (Korny Corn and Polly Pumpkin!) and a farm band provide colourful entertainment and the kids love the barnyard animals.
