As the leaves begin to change colours and the weather becomes slightly cooler, it is evident that fall is now upon us. Adding that extra layer of clothing before you head out the door is worth it as there are many festive things to do this season, at your local farm.
Chudleigh’s Farm has been around since 1957 and over time their concept of providing entertainment for the entire family has been successful. Apple picking and seeing some of your favourite farm animals at the petting zoo are only few of the many attractions local farms like Chudleigh’s have. The local farm makes pressed apple cider and freshly baked pies that are ready for you to pick up on your way out.
For many locals, an annual visit is a must with a farm that has over 28,000 trees and pumpkins of all sizes that have been ready to be picked, since late September.
