Miller’s Farm

by Deborah

A couple of weekends ago we spent the afternoon with our three grandsons at Miller’s Farm in Manotick (6158 Rideau Valley Drive north). This is a family friendly venue where kids are encouraged to be kids.

There is a lot to see and do. For a small fee we took a wagon ride to the pumpkin field where the kids picked out their own pumpkins. 

We then headed off for a walk through the corn maze. 

The farm includes a market where there are fall mums, decorative gourds and corn, and a beautiful gift shop with seasonal products for Thanksgiving and Halloween. We stocked up on fresh produce; apples for lunches and squash for soup.

Our youngest grandson enjoyed jumping among the haystacks and poking his head through the cut outs to have his picture taken.

We closed out the day with candy apple treats for all. Bring your camera as there are many great photo ops.

  1. Millers is wonderful place! The staff are friendly and so is the dog!! Every year, I like to go for a pumpkin and apples! They have tons of different kinds of apples and sell them in small amounts all the way up to by the bushel!

    And another note about Millers, even though they aren’t open in the evenings, they do take private group bookings in the evenings, I am taking my Brownie group in a couple weeks. The Sparks and Brownies are just doing the wagon ride to get a pumpkin from the field and then they do a story time, for $5 per child and the Guides are also doing the corn maze (in the dark) for $8. It really is a great outing for a group!
