Where to Pick the Best Pumpkins in Ontario

One for the basket (or in this case wheelbarrow), one for me. It�s a time honoured tradition, one that affords many delicious opportunities to explore Ontario�s rural places at your own pace.

We�ve gathered up some of our favorite pick-your-own spots into a nice little list for all you pumpkin-loving, bakers and carvers. Take an afternoon, visit a farm and pick your own this season!
