Pumpkins, Hayrides, and More!
The Harpur Family is excited to launch their Pumpkin Patch this year in South Canoe. Their first year of pumpkin farming has resulted in over an acre of pumpkins ripe for the picking. They are inviting the community to come to their farm for pumpkins, hay rides, snacks, and fresh hot apple cider made from their very own heritage apple trees. Their super cute miniature goats will also be on hand.
Steve Harpur and Sydney Barron moved to Salmon Arm from Vancouver in July 2016, they both always wanted to own a farm and made the leap to Salmon Arm to make that happen. Sydney grew up in Salmon Arm and had memories of visiting local pumpkin patches as a child and dreamed of one day having her own Pumpkin Patch where children and families could make memories like those she had. The Harpur’s home also happens to be one of Salmon Arm’s 49 Heritage Sites, built in 1914 by English Surgeon and Orchardist Dr. William Buckell.
The Harpur’s are very much excited to put this acreage back to work and welcome the community to their property. The Pumpkin Patch will be open every Saturday and Sunday throughout October from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm starting October 7, 2017. Be sure to take a photo at their vintage photo booth while you’re visiting to share on Social Media.
