U-Pick Apple Orchards in Vancouver

Apple Orchards & Pumpkin Farms in the Vancouver Area

42 SHARES

Suddenly the calendar has changed from summer to fall. But it’s not time to hibernate just yet—the incoming cooler temperatures make for the perfect apple-picking and farm-visiting weather. Here are our favourite spots to ‘u-pick’ apples—and some great pumpkin patches to check out as autumn rolls in.

Taves Family Farms

Head to Abbotsford and Taves Family Farms, where Fuji, Honeycrisp, and Gala apples are ripe for the picking. Good to know: Honeycrips are available as of Sunday, September 10th. And on September 9 and 10 this year they’re holding an Apple Festival with apple cake, a magician and complimentary cider and apple samples.

Willow View Farms

Admission is free and the apples are plentiful at Willow View Farms, open Monday-Saturday 9 am–5:30 pm, and Sunday 11 am–5:30 pm. They offer a petting zoo and hayrides during the last two weekends of September, so go later in the month if your little ones love tractors. Good to know: they provide plastic bags for your bounty, but bring boxes for better transportation.

Unfortunately, the farm experienced a fire on August 23rd that destroyed the Country store, so there’s no access to yard, playground or the barn at this time. But, they’re still open and have fruit to bear regardless. We can already smell the apple pie!

Aldor Acres Family Farm

Aldor Acres is a family owned and operated farm located 5 kms east of Fort Langley that offers up a fun and festive Pumpkin Festival starting at the end of September. From September 23rd to October 31st, you and your little ones can check out the barns, visit the petting zoo and, new this year, watch the pig races! Good to know: they’ve got over 20 acres of pumpkin patches with 15 different varieties of pumpkins for you to pick! (Who knew??) So sit back and enjoy the hayrides while you head out in search of the most perfect pumpkin.

Chilliwack Corn Maze & Pumpkin Farm

Located in Chilliwack, this farm offers up loads of family fun with a 12-acre corn maze, a giant jumping pillow, a pumpkin patch, a corn train, farm animals and u-pick apples. Good to know: They’re open on Thursdays from 6:00 to 9:00 pm, Fridays to Sundays & holidays from 11:00 am to 9:00 pm, but are closed Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Before the weather outside turns frightful, get out and explore these fun, family attractions in the fresh air.
