One things I definitely want to tick off our Autumn Bucket List this year is to visit some pumpkin patches. 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 13th-28th 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-£15 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 September 29th-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.
Prices to be confirmed.
Church View Farm, Liverpool
If you are planning to pick your pumpkins over the October half-term then you head to Church View Farm for some Halloween fun. They also have a photographer available for those Pumpkin Patch photo shoots. You can pick your own starting from October 6th.
Poplar Farm, Ormskirk
This pumpkin patch was hugely popular last year. Keep an eye on their social media for news of this years events.
Ivy House Farm, Malpass, Cheshire
Opening from October 20th for selected dates, 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.
