U-Pick

Enjoy “picking your own” for strawberries and pumpkins or enjoy the convenience of pre-picked at Linton’s Farm Market when in season.

Pick your pumpkin!

The moment you have been waiting for is finally here!

Our Pick-Your-Own Pumpkins will be available on WEEKENDS in October. PYO will be provided in a modified format this year with guidance from the Government of Ontario and Durham Region Public Health. Face masks are mandatory.

Please do a self-assessment before you come to the farm. If you have any symptoms or have been in contact with a possible case- do not come to the farm.

YOU SHOULD KNOW:

Tickets must be pre-purchased on our website before your visit. This year, we have a limited number of spots available each day. We will be accepting a very limited number of walk-ins. Please book ahead to ensure you will not be turned away. Each admission includes one (1) pumpkin from the patch & a visit to the corn maze if you desire. Please note the Play Area remains CLOSED.

WHEN:

PYO Pumpkins will be available the following weekend:

  • October 31 – Halloween

HOURS:

The patch will be open from 10am-2pm.

PARKING:

*Please use our temporary Pick Your Own Entrance that is on Raglan Road right by the Giant Pumpkin & exit through the main driveway by the market* Once you have parked, please proceed to the white tent to enter the patch. If you are coming for Pick-Your-Own Pumpkins, you MUST park in the field.

WAGON RIDES:

Physically distanced wagon rides will be available sporadically! Masks are mandatory. If you are able to walk to the patch, please do so. The pumpkin patch is just behind the barn so it is a close walk from the entrance tent.

Wheelbarrows and wagons will be available to be taken to the field to transport your pumpkins. These are meant to transport pumpkins only – not children. Please bring all of our wagons and wheelbarrows back to be sanitized before next use.

This is a weather-dependent harvesting activity! Please wear appropriate footwear, there will be mud. You can bring your strollers into patch but it is not recommended.

MASKS ARE MANDATORY.
