Carved pumpkins
Once you’ve picked your pumpkins, you can have lots of fun carving them!

October is such a magical month – the weather is getting colder (who doesn’t love wrapping up warm?!), you’ve likely had one or two pumpkin spiced lattes and Halloween is on the horizon!


Whether you’re a die-hard Halloween fan, or a pumpkin carving novice, why not head to your nearest pumpkin patch and get picking! You can even maybe make some pumpkin pie or soup afterwards…

Bradshaws Farm Shop and Garden Centre are hosting pumpkin picking every day in October, and you just pay for what you pick. Booking is necessary during half term and weekends. Wheelbarrows are provided.

Centurion Tank Roundabout are open every Saturday and Sunday in October (until they run out) from 8am-4pm.

Croston Pumpkin Patch are open every weekend throughout October, and through the week of half term. They are open from 10am until 4pm. They will also have food, bouncy castles, toilet facilities and off-road parking too, to make your trip an easier one.

Windmill Animal Farm is perfect if you fancy travelling a little further afield for a whole day of farmyard fun. You can book tickets now as places are limited to keep people safe. Each ticket includes a full day admission to Windmill Animal Farm which includes access to the famous Pumpkin Picking Adventure, where all visitors get to pick their own pumpkin from the fields that they are grown in. One pumpkin per ticket is included. You are welcome to purchase more pumpkins on the day. Wheelbarrows will be provided, and wellies are recommended.
