One things I definitely want to tick off our Autumn Bucket List this year is visiting a pumpkin patch. The kids had so much fun carving pumpkins with Daddy last year so I thought it would be nice to let them choose their own this year. It may also have a little to do with the fact that pumpkin patches provide fantastic photo opportunities too.
As I have been doing some research about pumpkin patches in my local area, the North-West, I thought I would share my findings with you.
Kenyon Hall Farm, Warrington
From the 14th-31st of October Kenyon Hall Farm will celebrate October in style in a pumpkin festival. Admission is free and there’s no need to book. You can pick your own from the patch or choose one of the ready-picked ones. Prices range between £2-£20 depending on size.
There will be a vast array of sizes, shapes and colours to choose from. If you want to leave the mess of carving your pumpkin at the farm there’s a special area dedicated to carving your pumpkin. There is a fee for this area of £3 per pumpkin.
The Pumpkin Patch Hightown, Liverpool
The whole family will have fun at this pick-your-own patch. From the 7th-31st of October you can grab a wheelbarrow and walk down the rows of pumpkins to choose your own. You could be one of the first to pick a giant pumpkin.
The pumpkins are a bargain at £4 each or 3 for £10, that includes the huge ones.
Church Farm, Thurston, Wirral
If you are planning to pick your pumpkins over the October half-term then you head to Church Farm for some Halloween fun. They have 2000 growing pumpkins in their field plus lots of other brilliant Halloween activities going on.
A family ticket (2 adults 2 children) for the farm is £20 and pumpkins are priced individually.
You can find more information about the farm and Halloween activities here.
Poplar Farm, Ormskirk
This pumpkin patch is already open for you to pick your own. Open daily from 10am till 5pm until Halloween. These pumpkins are a fabulous bargain at £4 each or 3 for £10.
Ivy House Farm, Malpass, Cheshire
Open over the Halloween half-term from the 21st-31st of October (excluding 23rd/24th), 10am until 4pm. Pick your own pumpkins cost £3.50. There are lots of other fun activities available like a maize maze and bouncy castle.
