New to pingle’s: PICK-YOUR-OWN CORN!

NEW to our PYO crop line up, we’re proud to be the first farm in Durham Region offering this a-maize-ing pick-your-own corn experience! You can’t beat the taste of FRESHLY PICKED CORN & this activity is enjoyable for all ages.

Never picked corn before? Here’s some tips!

Look for the biggest (or fattest!) ears. If you’re not sure if the cob is ready, look at it’s hair / silk: the darker the better! When you’ve found the perfect cob, grab it & ‘snap’ it down! It will come off with ease without breaking the stalk.


Every Tuesday – Sunday, 9am – 4pm (last entry 3pm)
