Thanks to everyone’s entry fee to our farm’s 2016 corn maze and the sale of the grain corn in the maze $5,800 will be donated to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. Special thanks to Burkholder Farms for harvesting the corn and Reesor Elevators for trucking and drying the corn at no charge. Thanks to Grahame, pictured above on the left, for designing and cutting the maze.

It’s time to pick your own strawberries at Reesor’s Farm Market

reesors-pick-your-own-strawberries
Come see how strawberries grow and enjoy a farm experience while you have fun picking our juicy, delicious Ontario strawberries. It’s our 30th year of Pick Your Own (PYO) strawberries and it’s so much fun to meet grandparents, parents and children who make it a tradition to pick strawberries together in our fields.
No time to pick? We have plenty of ready-picked strawberries available by the litre and by the flat in our Farm Market and at Reesor’s Market & Bakery, Main St., Stouffville.

We plan to have PYO strawberries available until early July, but strawberries are very sensitive to the variables of heat and rain, so please plan to pick soon. Our planned PYO hours for June 18 and June 20-25 are 8 am-5 pm, but may change according to the weather. Please call 905-640-4568 for a pre-recorded message about hours and picking conditions for the day you plan to come pick. Please remember we are closed Sundays.
Here’s what to expect when you pick strawberries at Reesor’s:

  • Free admission to the field.
  • Straw between the rows and under the berries making it more comfortable for you and keeping the strawberries cleaner when it rains.
  • Helpful, friendly staff at the fields to assign you rows of strawberries from which to pick, so you can pick more berries more quickly.  You won’t be picking from picked-over berries.
  • Bring your own containers or purchase baskets from our staff in the strawberry fields.
  • Convenient field-side parking.
  • Hand washing & toilet by the field.

Having fun and raising money at the same time is a great combination! Thanks to everyone who ventured into our farm’s corn maze this year. You helped raise $2,148 for the Canadian Foodgrains Bank for international aid.  Thanks also to Burkholder Farms who harvested the feed corn for free, so that an additional $650 was raised from the sale of the corn itself.

Reesor’s Corn Maze is now open

Our corn maze at Reesor’s Farm Market is fun and challenging for all ages. This year we’re charging a small fee to enter the maze and the proceeds go to the Stouffville Food Bank.

Come on into the maze, have fun and get up close and personal with corn!

Our giant scarecrow is waiting….
to have his picture taken with you

We welcome you to bring your family and friends to pick pumpkins in our pumpkin patch, take photos with our giant scarecrow and find your way through our corn maze.  They are all located just north of the farm market and are open during Market hours. 

You have lots of ways to choose pumpkins at Reesor Farm Market.
