Long Description:
The Brantwood Farms Market is located on Farmer Tom`s (Pate) farm. The outside market is constantly changing depending on the season. In the spring Hanging Baskets, Vegetable Plants and Annual Flowers are available, plus a large `Pick your own` variety of berries, beans, peas, etc.

At Brantwood Farm about 20 different fruits and vegetables are grown and sold. Rhubarb and Asparagus in the Spring and picking continually through the Summer season to apples and pumpkins in the Fall. In season fresh fruits and vegetables are available from a network of other local growers.

In the summer freshly picked sweet corn, tomatoes, green beans, peaches, berries, apple butter, honey, and 10 kinds of fresh baked pies.

In the Fall the market offers squash, apples and a huge selection of Fall decor such as pumpkins in all shapes and sizes, mums, corn stalks & gourds. Apple cider is a big hit, or you can even order a fresh turkey for Thanksgiving.

Brantwood Farms operates "The Haunted Hayride" for several weekends before Hallowe'en! This is a real crowd pleaser, and includes haunted barns, mazes, a number of other Hallowe'en related activities, and of course . . . the verrrrry scarrrrrry hayride back into the woods on the Pate farm!

If ice cream is your fix, stop in for a cone, and choose from the 20 different flavours of fresh scooped ice cream.

School tours and Fall festivals are also available, providing fun for the whole family.
