Tips For A Successful Pumpkin Picking Trip:

Tips For A Successful Pumpkin Picking Trip:

Firstly, Plan Ahead. Check when they first open. We were going to go this weekend but they are not open yet! Then check the opening hours. See if they have an admission fee.

Also if you are taking children see if there are any activities available at your chosen pumpkin farm. Consider visiting on a weekday to avoid the weekend crowds if possible.

Secondly, Dress Appropriately. You might need your wellies if it has been raining. Wear comfortable clothes like I did. Stretchy leggings, a warm jumper, and wellies.

Sturdy footwear is key. As you likely be walking up and down the field looking for the perfect pumpkin.

Thirdly, Bring Some Cash. Some farms may only accept cash for admission and pumpkin purchases, so it’s a good idea to have some on hand.

    You look lovely in orange! I haven’t been to a pumpkin patch in ages– probably when my boys were in kindergarten. They are lots of fun and we have quite a few places around us but we never do anything with the pumpkins we pick so I stopped going.

      Yes it is easy to get carried away and buy a few. I only bought a few this year and they love making pumpkin soup and roasted seeds out of them so they don’t get wasted.
