Taste of the Month: Harvest
Let your senses be your guide this October as we celebrate HARVEST MONTH at Taste of Nova Scotia.
Pull on your boots, grab your sweater, head outdoors and explore the province as the season changes from summer to fall right before your eyes.
Taste: The province’s produce is in full swing this month. Visit your local farmer’s market to purchase fresh greens, apples, pears, potatoes, squash, and pumpkins or harvest them in your own backyard.
Recipes: We’ve got delicious food and drink recipes featuring fresh Nova Scotia products for you to try at home.
Win: Our contest to win two tickets to the Devour Food and Film Festival will launch… – follow us on Facebook to win.
October is the perfect time to have an agriculture adventure in Nova Scotia – dozens of apple orchards, pumpkin u-picks, and corn mazes are waiting for you to explore.
- Stirling Fruit Farm in Wolfville features an apple and pumpkin u-pick this October. You can also take hayrides through their farm and get lost in the corn maze for a few hours.
- Noggins Corner Farm Market also features an apple and pumpkin u-pick, and corn maze at their Wolfville location. On weekends, they feature duck races, washer toss, a barnyard adventure area, haunted house, and wagon rides.
- Masstown Market will have family fun events and a community garden this fall.
- Drop by the Scotian Gold Country Store to purchase in-season produce and delicious, local apples.
