Best Summer Pick Your Own Farms




In the Greater Toronto Area, we're lucky to have all the benefits of living in an amazing city with a nearby countryside filled with farms and great agricultural experiences. More and more, parents are looking to teach their children about the farm-to-table experience, and there's no better lesson than harvesting your own food. But beyond that, picking your own fruit is tons of fun, and makes for a great day or weekend trip.

Whether you prefer strawberries, raspberries, cherries, blueberries or stone fruit, picking your own fruit is a fun family activity that keeps on giving. Here are favourite places to pick the best of summer fruits...

Most farms are open but check each website for special instructions due to COVID-19.
