Rounds Ranch

Good Ol' Bessy and the kids in the HUGE corn maze
It's mid-October and over 15°C.  Blue skies beckon outdoor play and while the air smells like fall, the sunshine feels like summer.  We unload from the car and are immediately thrown back to a simpler time - to homemade play structures and homemade wagons and homemade signs and homemade french fries and pumpkins, pumpkins, and more pumpkins.

Barrel Bull Riding

Rounds Ranch is an old time family business, creating fun out of simplicity, celebrating pumpkins and corn and autumn on a laid-back farm between Wasaga Beach and Elmvale.  We made a day of it and



we did it all: pumpkin bowling,
pumpkin toss, barrel bull riding, obstacle course, corn maze, hay maze, pedal go-carts, picking our own pumpkins, corn cannon shooting, petting zoo, pie eating contest, zip-line and crazy drop slide.  It was exhausting and wonderful.  We pulled Noa around in Bessy, a plastic barrel that had been converted into a dairy cow, drank juice out of little plastic pumpkins and sunburned our noses.  It was magic!
Noa picked her very own - just her size!

A pumpkin paradise!
