Abbotsford’s Taves Farms Pumpkin Patch and Fall Activities

Taves Farm Pumpkin Patch

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

In addition to fields of pumpkins, in autumn the farm has a corn maze, apples to pick, hay rides and other family-friendly activities.


Taves Family Farms Pumpkin Patch

Taves Family Farms 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. It’s also where you’ll find apples to pick in the orchard.

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 five minutes from Maan Farms which is a similar place with its own exceptional pumpkin patch, corn maze and selection of child-friendly activities.


What to Expect at the Farm

At Taves Farm in autumn you can expect to see a field of pumpkins, a corn maze, pumpkin path, pumpkin hut and lots of apples in rows and rows of trees. There are hay rides, farm animals to look at, children’s play structures to have fun on, and produce for sale in a small village-like area. There are also glasses of apple cider and apple slushies to enjoy!

Especially on sunny weekends, expect to see lots of young families pushing wheelbarrows as they make their way to the orchard and pumpkin field to pick farm-fresh produce.

The farm is a fun place to be in autumn, and it can get busy!

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 folks 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.

Fun for kids and for people wanting to take selfies, there is usually a pumpkin carriage in the middle of the pumpkin patch.
