One way or another, we love to enjoy spectrum of rich autumn colors around us, especially on near by farms, like Quinn Farm. Even in a urban environment with a tree or two around us we collect leafs, walk and admire, take pictures and paint with aim to preserve richness of autumn colors. Despite, the beauty of the nature is experienced the best out there, far from the urban gray noise.
We’ll be here adding to a spectrum of colors also seasonal farm produce of a local farm, as already said, in few words and a photo gallery featuring the Quinn Farm, located on Ile-Perrot, just outside of Montreal (west on highway #20).
Most colorful season of the year must be experienced outdoors wherever (whenever) green of summer is being slowly replaced by rich yellow and read colors of the autumn.
This visit to Quinn Farm was in the month of October so it features pumpkin picking but farm also produces strawberries, blueberries, asparagus and sweet corn, all pick-your-own through out the summer months.
At the very entrance Quinn Farm features beautiful barn where, who knows, your little one may meet for the first time some of the domesticated animals too. Maze made of bales of straw will keep the kids busy while ride on a tractor pulled wagon arrives. When done with harvesting fun on one of the fields or in their apple orchard, beside paying for produce you have collected outdoors, you can buy a seasonal, freshly made, right there on the farm, apple or pumpkin muffins, apple pie, locally produced honey and other products. Weather permitting, you may find a bench and have a picnic.
Yearly cycle of life on Quinn farm does not end with pumpkin picking since in December, you may choose your own perfect Christmas tree right there.
In the same main building at the Quinn Farm, in October you may find great Halloween related crafts and in the month of December Christmas items that will make a great Christmas presents or decorations for your home.

Quinn Farm [+], located on 2495 boul. Perrot sud, Notre-Dame de l’Île-Perrot, in Quebec, is kind of farm that can be found around any big city. If nothing else then this could be a good reason to go out there and get fresh produce throughout the Summer and Autumn.
