If you are looking for a spooktacular pumpkin patch to visit this year then I can recommend Hill Farm. I have been quite a few times before over the summer to pick our strawberries and blackberries but have never been to pick my own pumpkin before.
Hill Farm is open for Pumpkin picking from September 28th 10am to 5pm and is free to enter.
Don’t forget your wellies as it can be very muddy.
I love how much effort they have put into decorating the farm, I especially love the witches lair. There are Halloween decorations placed everywhere for the kids to enjoy and really get them in the mood.
Depending on the size of pumpkin/s you want to pick there are wheelbarrows available for you to use close by.
you don’t realise just how many different shapes, colour and sizes there are until you see them all together in a field. Leo had so much fun squelching through the mud trying to find the perfect pumpkin for him and I was really surprised that he had picked himself a smallish one to take home.
Of course, I made him pose for a picture holding a giant pumpkin too.
When you have finished, just take your pumpkin back to the shop and they will sit it on top of a sizing table and that will tell you how much it will be.
Then you can buy yourself a cuppa from the cafe, sit down for five minutes whilst the kids play in the playground before you head home.
