We had just enough time to fill half a container of blueberries before the storm arrived. This was a great morning activity that we did with our son and exchange student from Spain. The farm has a great deal, half a large container for $10 or a full container for $20. It took two of us about and hour to fill half. We will definitely be back again!
This week we had the pleasure of visiting Maple Meadows Farm, an 1830’s family owned farm in Port Colborne just north of Lake Erie. With old charm and a gorgeous natural landscape Maple Meadows offers not only a beautiful escape but also pottery classes on the farm as well as a pick your own bouquet experience which is an interesting new concept here in Niagara. Throughout the months of May to October they invite individuals to stroll through the meadows and cut their own fresh bouquet of home grown flowers.
Excitingly, they have also recently begun a new venture offering space for events such as weddings. For more information check out their website www.maplemeadowsfarm.ca
