Our 4 Favourite Toronto Pumpkin Patches

Ah, fall, we love it all! We love the changing leaves from green to orange, sweater weather, cute boots, and spiced lattes. But what we love the most is apple and pumpkin picking! 

There's no better family-friendly outing to celebrate fall and let the little ones explore and learn. Below, you can find our top 4 Toronto fall picks for fall pickings!
