Awesome Family Friendly Activity
Jul. 2021 • Family
Watson Family Farm is a HUGE place. Apart from the numerous rows for strawberry picking, they also offer peas and beans picking in the summer too. My kids loved the tractor wagon ride, where you can take the wagon to get to the strawberry fields (TIP: saves you a walk in the heat).

There’s also a BIG playground with a tall slide and a tractor, alongside with sand toys, for the kids to play in and that was very fun as well. And don’t forget to feed and pet the goats and the calf in the petting zoo and feed them corn which is available on site (pay 25 cents in the corn machine).

Couple more tips:

- Go in the morning. It’s far less busy and you get the best selection of strawberries & have the entire field to yourself.

- Even better, go on a weekday morning! It is not busy then and you can find parking easily. You also won’t feel rushed.

- Have masks and hand sanitizers. You are required (esp adults) to wear masks throughout the farm, including the wagon ride.

- Bring dry snacks for the kids (I had apples, crackers and pretzels) and eat it in the playard area. Outside food and drinks are not allowed otherwise.

crazy busy at halloween
Oct. 2019
I stopped for veggeis. Everyone else was there for pumpkins and related fall activities with their kids. Crazy busy place low in the vegetable department. Maybe this wasn 't the season for veggies, I managed to get a big cauliflower for a decent price. Parking lots nuts, so much outdoor activities for the kids.

Good variety of produce
Oct. 2018 • Family
There was a good variety of fresh produce and lots of pumpkins to choose from, well displayed and easy to access. My rating for this attraction is low since the website is outdated and some features described which we specifically visited for were not available this year. Although the weather was not favourable for outdoors activity, it was still good to see a few animals and check out the playground. Hours of operation listed are for the store. Best to call ahead to verify other events highlighted are current.

Fresh Veggie Heaven

Pick your own apples (or strawberries) in season or browse the shop for something delicious. Healthy eating can be fun, and is much more appealing with fresh, local food. Stop for a short visit with the animals too. Don't pass by the cheese cooler without some fresh curds to take home! Our new favourite is the cider with a cinnamon stick and some dark rum!

We come every year for apple picking!
Oct. 2017 • Family
Amazing selection of apples to choose from. Tractor ride is always a hit with the kids and there's a massive playground for them to burn themselves out on (giant slide, sand pit with lots of things to climb and ride, plus swings).

The indoor mini market offers tons of little snacks and treats to purchase to bring home. A must if you have never been before!
