Where to Pick Peaches in Southern Ontario

Peach Farms in ontario pick your own

Share to Social:


Late July through to September is peach season in Ontario. You can buy local fresh peaches from farmers’ markets and even your local grocer. But a lot more fun, and educational, is to head out to a local peach growing farm and pick your own. 

Introducing to children how things grow is increasingly important in our modern world where kids can so easily feel disconnected. It makes a great day trip, the whole family will enjoy. Planning these types of outings each year with your kids is a simple way to create strong memories – not to mention you’ll get to take home some delicious juicy peaches!

Niagara region is where you will find many of Ontario’s Peach farms – with at least 15 varieties of peaches some of the more popular types are Fantasia, Harrow Beauty, Garnet Beauty and Red Havens. 

Read on for some PYO peach farms to visit in southern Ontario.
