Abbotsford’s Taves Farm Pumpkin Patch

Taves Farm Pumpkin Patch

Just one hour from Vancouver, Taves Family Farm and Applebarn is home to a family-friendly u-pick pumpkin patch during the days leading up to Halloween.

 

Taves Farm Pumpkin Patch & Fall Activities

Taves Family Farm operates their popular pumpkin patch attraction around October each year. It’s a great place for families to find all kinds of orange and other-coloured gourds to decorate for Halloween.

Taves Farm can be found at 333 Gladwin Road in Abbotsford. This is about a one-hour drive from downtown Vancouver and only a few minutes from the Abbotsford airport. It’s also only about 5 minutes from Maan Farms which is a similar place with its own exceptional pumpkin patch, corn maze and selection of child-friendly activities.

Hours and Dates of Operation

The pumpkin patch is open at the same time as the rest of Taves Farm’s attractions from early September until Halloween.

In 2020 the farm’s attractions were open between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm from September 5th until October 30th. On the day of Halloween the venue closed an hour early. 2021 details will likely be similar.

In years without a global pandemic, hayrides usually run from 10:30 am until 4:30 pm Monday to Friday and all day on Saturdays and Sundays.

About the Pumpkin Patch

Visitors can choose to go out in the fields to find a pumpkin, or they can simply select a pre-picked one at the country store. There is also a smaller pumpkin field located directly behind the petting barn that is suitable for folk with younger children.

The main pumpkin fields can be found between rows of apple and pear trees. It is a little bit of a walk from the main area so Taves Farm provides wheelbarrows to help people carry their treasures back from the fields.

Pumpkins range in size from small ones you can hold in one hand up to huge ones weighing upwards of 50 pounds. They also come in a variety of colours ranging from the standard orange to white or green or even pink.
