I can remember when getting a pumpkin meant going to the supermarket a week before Halloween to get one off the shelf. It’s so much nicer to not only pick your own from the field but to also support local farmers.
I just happened to be driving past this farm the other day and noticed the signs for pumpkin picking. So many places ask for pre-booking because of Covid and sell out straight away, plus you never know what the weather will be like, so it was a delight to just be able to rock up this morning and have a lovely walk through the patch and pick some beauties.
Starveall Farm is located in Stone, Buckinghamshire. They provide wheelbarrows for the little ones and charge by size from £1 for the little munchkin size to £10 for a giant pumpkin. Take some wellies though as Pumpkin Patches do tend to be really muddy.
This is only the second year they have done this so I’m looking forward to seeing it go from strength to strength. Have you managed to get to a pumpkin patch this year?
