When Autumn rolls in, it's time for Pumpkins! Here are a few pumpkin patches (and pumpkin events) to check out:

  • Richmond Country Farms - A fun, fabulous pumpkin patch experience on the Holger Family farm behind Richmond Country Farms Market, 12900 Steveston Hwy, Richmond.
  • Westham Island Herb Farm is covered in pumpkins of all sizes and varieties throughout October. And for the last 10 days of October, it becomes Ladner's Halloween Headquarters! 4690 Kirkland Road, Delta.
  • Backroads Family Farm Market have a u-pick pumpkin patch throughout October each year. 2752 52nd Street, Ladner.
  • Krause Berry Farms & Estate Winery offer BC’s ONLY Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off Event!

When you carve your Hallowe’en pumpkin, save the seeds. Clean off the stringy bits, toss them with a little oil and roast at 325ºF for 45 minutes to an hour.

And if you'd like to try an amazing Cheese-Stuffed Pumpkin, here's the recipe!
