Family Fun - Entertainment Farming

With a scenic view, a beautiful picnic area, a large creative playground, a farm animal corral and free hayrides, a visit to Andrews' Scenic Acres is a pleasurable family occasion. As we are a local destination we have been enjoying community visitors since 1980. From our first day to the present, the number one attraction for our farm has been the nearly unstoppable desire of all ages to hop onto the tractor drawn hay wagon and ride to the field for in season pick your own produce. At Andrews' farm there is always something to pick from May 1 to Oct 31. Please check our Seasonal Calendar to find the approximate ripening dates for fruit, vegetables and flowers that are grown on the farm. These crops as well as other local crops are also available ready picked in the farm market. Please check out our Farm Market to discover our other healthy and delicious options.

We have a range of food, drink and snacks in the farm market and BBQ area so there is little need to bring your own food and drink unless for dietary considerations. Our most famous and popular item is our frozen yogurt and ice cream made with your choice of Andrews' berries and fruit. If families or groups do choose to bring their own picnic food and drink to the farm, a $3.00 per person admission fee will be charged.

Our very popular BBQ operates daily during the summer and on Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays during the spring and fall. Available on the BBQ are beef Ball Park hotdogs, Oktoberfest pork sausages, veggie burgers and veggie samosas. Starting in late July or early August, we also have available hot buttered super sweet corn on the cob. Sweet corn grown on our farm is cooked in a turn of the century iron kettle formerly used for boiling maple syrup. There is nothing quite like Andrews' super fresh, super sweet corn on the cob.

Starting September 15th we also have available our gently haunted forest, straw mountain jump and cornfield walk. To cover the cost of these additional attractions, we charge $3.00 per person from September 15th to October 31st for admission to the fun farm area. During the rest of the year there may be a $1.00 admission fee to the farm area. Family Fun—Entertainment Farming has its own unique challenges and costs. To offset these costs and to be able to supply a range of produce and fun activities to Greater Toronto Area customers, we have started to charge a $1.00 admission fee to those who take part in farm activities. We have held the line on Pick Your Own prices. The number one fall attraction continues to be the wagon ride to the pumpkin picking field where everyone can select their favourite pumpkin, whether it is 5 or 80 pounds. There is no charge for entrance to the farm market and winery at any time of the year.

Pony rides are available on Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays throughout the picking season. If you are planning a birthday or special occasion that includes pony rides please contact Brad or Tina directly regarding availability at www.dreamcatcherstables.ca or info@dreamcatcherstables.ca. The kind people at Dream Catcher Stables provide their services at a wide range of venues throughout the GTA.
