There’s no better way to appreciate this region’s rich agricultural history than to spend your day hand picking delicious harvest vegetables at Fairntosh Farms. Located just minutes from Richlands in the historic hamlet of Gormley, Fairntosh farms currently has beans, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and Halloween pumpkins in season and just waiting to be picked. They recommend that you phone ahead (905-887-5727) on the day that you come to the farm to confirm that the pick your own fields are open, as they will occasionally be temporarily closed due to heavy rainfall, etc.
Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays in October from 7 pm – 12 am
Okay, this event is 20 minutes from Richlands at Canada’s Wonderland, but it is a pretty cool one so we felt it was worth sharing. This exciting event includes 20 haunted attractions — including the annual favourite Zombies 4D Interactive Dark Ride. There are also mazes, scare zones and over 700 monsters prowling the park. A great selection of Wonderland’s favourite rides and rollercoaster’s are also open for this event.
