Great day on Brooks Farm! We came with our grandson 7 years old and all had a lot of fun. We also picked up some apples, pumpkin and huge sunflowers.

We went to pick raspberries but there weren't really any left. There were some to purchase in their shop. The shop was really modern. There were baked goods, fruits, veggies, ice cream, slushies, a cafe and giftware. We thought the prices were reasonable. There was also a chip van with fries and poutine. It was a bit hard to determine where to go for the you pick, but you just go into the cafe to purchase. The biggest attraction here seemed to be a play area for children, it was quite busy.

Definitely a great place to take the kids out to play plenty of things to do . Easter Festival Real Pig race which is pretty cool to see. Strawberry picking in the summer whitch haven't done yet but the strawberries in the farmers market are great when its in season i use buy a flat of strawberries. They usually
dont last a day and a half at home. Strawberry monster eats it all. There's farm animal like piglets goats sheep's where you could pet. Chickens ducks and rabbits too. Maple syrup when in season Halloween theme pumpkins in the fall. Various playground and pirate ships bouncy air pillows zip lines for the kids. Definitely recommend. Fresh jumbo size bagels and Various pantries are bake daily at the farm too.

A great family business that works very hard to bring fun and joy for all family members. The admission price covers everything so no extra ride prices. The cafe and store were a pleasant surrprise. We will make this an annual trip.

Overall a good experience. Lots of stuff to do. Unfortunately they did not update on their website nor tell us when we got there that there was no more Apple picking. And even if there was, apparently you’re not allowed to snack on any. It’s the first orchard that I’ve ever seen that.

This is my fourth year going to Brooks Farm and every year they have new things and it gets better. The kids love all about it.
My only suggestion would be to bring back the barbecue station that they used to have before Covid. They had more food options which I miss now. Other than that great place!!!

The fall after-dark festival at Brooks Farm runs the entire month of Oct. in East Gwillimbury. Just east of Ninth, North of Herald Rd., I was able to drop off kids at two locations (2 minutes apart): younger kids ages 2-9 prefer Brooks Farm; and teens went to the larger corn maze at Coopers Farm. Brooks’ corn maze is not as scary, besides the ghostly Talking Skeleton welcome with pumpkin patches—at both farms. They stay open to 8:45, instead of 6:00 as usual, until the last Sunday (Oct 30 $22 bucks or tap visa). Weekdays at Brooks is cheaper: pay $13 and enjoy wagon ride or picked apples, while sitting at picnic tables where poutine or hotdog/chicken lunch can be purchased with cold beverages. The farm market is bigger than at Pine Orchard and has the delicious pies, muffins, and Love Gelato ($3.50 each). I came out with plants and Lucas helped load my car with $100 of the gift items and honey crisp apples. The winter festival has fun campfire s’mores in Dec., though you wouldn’t be on the bouncy or sandbox play area by the splash pad. Like Chudleigh’s in Oakville, you can see Brooks’ farm animals and geese in summer. If you carry extra cash you could drop by Mr Jones’ farm for eggs and honey ( 3592 St. John’s Sideroad, Whitchurch-Stouffville), too. Brooks is located 10 minutes East of Mount Albert beside Hwy 48 (Markham Rd N). The driveway is on the North side to Brooks, and 266 ashworth rd in zephyr is for acres of the maze.

Great place for seasonal events. The farm Market is clean well maintained and it comes with a mini Cafe restaurant takeout. Coffee pastries other snacks. Fresh fruits vegetables maple syrup fudge etc.

Plenty of things to do for kids. Various playground activities zip lines for kids farm animal like goats cow chicken and a farm dog comes around and visits friendly dog.

Halloween theme was a nice added touch when we came on Saturday in October. Weather was nice.

Apple picking we didn't get time for. They got strawberry picking in June but had some already picked in the farmers market and it was fresh yummy and deliciously sweet for October fall season.

Farm was friendly well maintained clean inside and outside. Great customer service.

Definitely recommend and revisit.

I took my grandchildren there today and what a wonderful day they had! So many activities, animals to pet and feed, apples to pick, etc. we will be back. I didn’t give a perfect rating for 2 reasons:

1. the ladies washroom by the Hungry Hut was in a terrible state. Out of 4 cubicles, 1 was out of order, 3 had no toilet paper, there was no paper towel for drying our hands and there was paper and water all over the floor. Someone should be regularly scheduled to check, clean and supply the washrooms, especially on busy weekends.
2. We waited 34 minutes from time of order (time was on the receipt) to get a small order of French fries. Maybe more staff in the kitchen? The same kitchen staff had to go and clean/resupply the bathrooms which took even more time away from the kitchen.
