After berry picking in summer comes another kind of “pick your own” in the fall – squash, pumpkins, apples, fall raspberries and even table grapes!
Where to pick your own squash and pumpkins
La Courgerie offers hundreds of varieties of squash, new products, scarecrows and a charming store located inside an ancestral home. New this year: a self-guided tour you can download on your smartphone. Ideal for physical distancing while exploring the fields, identifying squash varieties and picking your own produce.
Self-picking pumpkins at Ferme Cormier is more popular than ever! In addition to picking your own pumpkins in the field, you can enjoy a fun tractor ride (with physical distancing). Make the most of your day to enjoy a family picnic featuring the farm’s delicious home-made products, sold on site. Self-picking starts on September 19.
Come pick your own pumpkins starting late September! Choose your favourite pumpkin directly in the field and learn about the numerous varieties of squash!
Where to pick your own apples
Yes, it’s possible to pick apples in Lanaudière! Demand for this delicious fall fruit is so strong that it’s best to check the farm’s Facebook page (French only) to ensure product availability. The farm’s store, on the other hand, is always fully stocked! Come enjoy a cider tasting and stock up on apple preserves, juices or pies, canola or flaxseed oil and maple products.
Where to pick your own fall raspberries
Who said picking berries in the fall wasn’t possible? The self-picking season has been extended with raspberry fall varieties. The “Autumn Bliss” variety is sweet and delicious! Self-picking starts on September 3 and is available Thursday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. You can also pick your own blueberries.
Don’t miss out – the season is short! Come pick your own blue grapes (Trollhaugen) and seedless red grapes (Somerset). Self-picking starts on September 4 and is available on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
