Fall is just around the corner, which means it’s time to start planning some fall-friendly activities. From corn mazes and pumpkin patches to endlessly sipping on pumpkin spice lattes, there is so much to love about this season. And thankfully, you don’t have to travel far to get a full dose of fall in the Lower Mainland. From Bose and Sons Family Farm in Surrey to Eagle Acres Dairy Farm & Pumpkin Patch in Langley, there are plenty of family-run farms nearby.
Bose and Sons Family Farm
Bose and Sons Family Farm is a Surrey institution, and this year it’s bursting with family-friendly fall activities. Although the corn maze is closed for 2021 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the pumpkin patch will likely be open for business throughout the month of October. Here, you and your family can take a wagon ride out to the pumpkin field and then pick your own pumpkins. There is also a small farmers’ market on-site with local goodies to enjoy.
Aldor Acres Family Farm
Head to Aldor Acres Family Farm in Langley for a one-of-a-kind experience in the Fraser Valley. Open daily from September 18th until October 31st, Aldor Acres has plenty to do. Between the pumpkin patch, farm animals, and farmers’ market, you could easily spend an entire afternoon here. The farm is one of the largest in the area so it has lots of parking. Admission is $13 per person, with pumpkins costing extra. Tractor rides are cancelled due to the pandemic, so remember to bring a canvas bag to carry your pumpkins to and from the field.
Eagle Acres Dairy Farm & Pumpkin Patch
Eagles Acres Dairy Farm & Pumpkin Patch is another great spot in the Langley area. For 2021, they are hosting a unique SaFarmi Stroll and Corn Maze, as well as their usual pumpkin patch. The corn maze is open Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm throughout September, and tickets to it include access to the SaFarmi experience. A play on safari, Eagle Acres Dairy Farm’s SaFarmi stroll allows visitors to wander among all kinds of farm animals, such as ponies, goats, sheeps, cows, and calves. There are a total of over 200 animals on-site, so you’re guaranteed to have an unforgettable experience. Please note that Eagle Acres’ pumpkin patch doesn’t open until October.
If you plan on visiting the Lower Mainland this fall, then spending an afternoon at a local pumpkin patch is a must. And if you need a place to stay during your visit, we’d love to host you at the Ramada by Wyndham Surrey/Langley.
