Pumpkins on the farm

Fall has arrived, bringing with it the lovely cool temperatures and pumpkins! We love the tradition of plain field pumpkins carved into jack-o-lanterns adorning front porches as Hallowe’en approaches but these days there are so many varieties of pumpkins it’s hard to choose just one!

Fall festive décor and seasonal displays are reaching new levels of awesomeness with pumpkins that range from colourful to textured and beyond.

Here’s some of the fun pumpkins and festive décor you will find at the farm.

Tomato Pumpkins

Red Warty Things

Porcelain Doll

Knuckle Heads

Ghost Pumpkins

Cinderella Pumpkins

Of course, we also have field pumpkins, pie pumpkins and giant pumpkins….

Gourds and mini pumpkins ... and corn stalks and hay bales

We can’t wait to see what you create! Be sure to tag us in your photos @springridgefarm.

We are open daily from 9am-5pm, see you soon!

Harvest Festival Fun

Springridge Farm is your destination for harvest festival fun this season. Make plans to visit and check off everything on your fall bucket list! With activities for all ages, an artisan bakery and Farmer John’s famous pumpkin crop, you won’t want to miss a minute of fun at the farm!

If your fall bucket list includes visiting a pumpkin patch, drinking a cup of hot apple cider, going on a wagon ride, seeing the leaves changing colour on the Niagara Escarpment, running through a corn trail and indulging in a freshly baked pumpkin spice pie – look no further!

Springridge Farm’s annual Harvest Festival takes place every weekend (including Thanksgiving Monday) from Saturday, September 22 to Sunday, October 28, 2018 from 10am - 4pm. Admission is $13 per person and includes wagon rides, a giant corn trail, professional puppet show, spooky Boo Barn, costumed characters and all your fun farm yard favourites! There is no charge to visit the Barn Market and Bakery.

Pumpkins are a huge part of the fall season here at the farm.  We offer ready to go pumpkins including field, pie, white ghost and Cinderella varieties.  You will also find pumpkin inspired items in our scratch bakery.

“We use pumpkins in our freshly baked pies, tarts and muffins,” says Amy. “Farmer John grows an exceptional variety of specialty pumpkins that are great for cooking with.”

The farm is open daily from 9am-5pm. We can't wait to welcome you!

Springridge Farm - a Canadian Experience

Give your visiting friends and family a Canadian experience

Are you welcoming family and friends from abroad?  When visitors come to Canada looking for an authentic Canadian experience, be sure to add Springridge Farm to your “to do” list. 

Agriculture is such an important part of the Canadian landscape and economy. We are proud to be a working farm, as well as, a destination for families to have fun and learn more about our farm and the lands around us.  The Hughes family has been fruit farming for six generations (over 100 years) and moved to Springridge Farm in 1960. To learn more about Springridge and the Hughes family, visit our farm history page.

Here are 5 quintessentially Canadian things to see and do at the farm.

Visit our fun farm and take the tractor wagon ride – learn about the crops we grow, the farm and the escarpment lands that surround us.

Honey bees are an important part of our farm.  Bees assist us by providing pollination for our crops. We also work with a beekeeper to produce and sell honey from 1 million bees that live in hives beside our pond. Stop into the barn market and bring some Springridge honey home with you.

What could be more Canadian that our most popular jam ever... CANADA 150 JAM!  Last year in celebration of Canada 150, we created a special jam featuring coast-to-coast ingredients that include strawberries from Springridge Farm, raspberries from the west coast, wild blueberries from the east coast and a splash of Canadian sparkling wine. Stop by and get some before it is gone.

Known around the world as a uniquely Canadian dessert, butter tarts are a staple in our scratch bakery! While the debate over raisins vs. no raisins rages on we have to say we are “team raisin”

In Canada we are lucky to have the climate and soil to grow a wide variety of crops. In Milton, where we are located, this is considered to be part of the Greenbelt.  At Springridge, we grow several crops but we also carry fruits and vegetables from other local Ontario farms to sell in our farm market ensuring you can have a “taste” of Ontario throughout the growing season.

We are open daily from 9am-5pm, see you soon!
