PickYourOwn.org has a listing of many spots all over Ontario. Included in the listings are fun family places to go with corn mazes and pumpkin patches (oh yeah, there is another special occasion coming at the end of the month...) There are also tips on canning and freezing with some great recipe links.
Toronto.com has lots of listing for the immediate GTA.
Unfortunately the early warm spring and subsequent freeze did a number on the blossoms (and the crop this year), so you might want to check in with the orchard before you make the trek. "The “good” news is that the apple trees which lost their buds this year put all their energy into growing and that will likely mean a “bumper crop all over the province” next year, says Tom Chudleigh, 72, whose Chudleigh Farm in Halton Hills has been operating 55 years"
Here's a guide to some of the best types you can buy for cooking and eating.
And if all you need is the visual, Anne Henvey has Apples of the Rainbow that will have you thinking October all year.
