Fall has officially arrived and that means apple picking, crisp mornings, and all things pumpkin spice!
To get into the fall spirit, we recommend heading to a family-run farm near you, and if you’re based in Cornwall, that means a trip to Cannamore Orchard.
Located roughly 45 minutes north of Cornwall, Cannamore Orchard is a family-run operation that has been in business since 1982. What started with over 500 apple trees has now turned into one of the biggest attractions in the area.
Between apple picking, a pumpkin patch, and a spooky Acres of Terror Halloween event, there is so much to do at Cannamore Orchard.
For those looking to take home some delicious apples, you’re in luck. Apple picking season has already begun for 2021. Cannamore Orchard’s Pick-Your-Own Apples experience is open daily between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm.
Family Activity Weekends are also on now, which allow the young ones to enjoy everything from wagon rides, hedge mazes, and cow train rides to pedal cars and a kid’s play area. There is also fresh fudge for all to enjoy!
Cannamore Orchard’s pumpkin patch isn’t quite open for the season, but usually opens around mid-September and remains open throughout October.
For both apples and pumpkins, visitors have the option of picking their own or purchasing pre-picked ones from Cannamore Orchard’s store.
Finally, if you’re someone who likes to be scared on Halloween, then you’ll love Cannamore’s Acres of Terror.
This annual event is marketed as the area’s most terrifying attraction, and sees the orchard turn into a haunted Halloween village. This year’s event includes four main components: the spooky wagon ride, the house of terror, the spooky village, and the fog maze. As with all years of the event, there will be tons of decorations, special effects, and live actors to make it as scream-inducing as possible. Tickets for both daytime (less spooky) and nighttime (more spooky) are available now, with Cannamore Orchard’s Acres of Terror running on weekends from September 24th until October 31st.
If you’re visiting Cornwall this fall, then we highly recommend spending an afternoon at nearby Cannamore Farms. And if you need a place to stay during your visit, you’re always welcome at the Ramada by Wyndham Cornwall.
