Looking to walk among the pumpkins for a traditional fall experience?

Good news: Warner Ranch and Pumpkin Farm and Bry-Anne Farms are open and full of ripe, orange orbs just in time for fall and Halloween.

Warner Ranch & Pumpkin Farm  — 7705 Schisler Rd., Welland

Open every day from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. until Nov. 1, Warner Ranch and Pumpkin Farm is a 170-acre farm with a petting zoo, corn maze, and hay rides which wind past apple trees, a pumpkin patch and into a forested area.

Thousands of pumpkins are available, ranging in size right up to their 60-pound jumbos. Prices range between $2 and $15. Squash and gourds are also available.

There’s no general admission; instead patrons pay for individual activities.

It’s first-come, first-served, with a 100-person limit on the farm and masks are required.

Bry-Anne Farms  — 471 Foss Rd., Fenwick

Open Sunday to Friday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Bry-Anne Farms provides a corn maze, pumpkin patch and wagon ride for $7 per person. Kids under the age of two are admitted free.

While there are still plenty of pumpkins left in the field ripening, Bry-Anne sells pre-harvested pumpkins for between $2 and $10.

It’s first-come, first-served, and there will be limits on the amount of people allowed on site. If it gets busy, expect to line up. Masks are required in buildings and for most activities.
