Farrington's Pumpkin Festival

07 Sep 2021

It’s the best time of year for Farrington's Farm Shop and this year they have grown around 100,000 pumpkins on their pumpkin patch, which is more than ever before!

They have lots of different varieties of pumpkins including the classic ‘Cinderella’ orange pumpkins, white ‘Ghost’ pumpkins, ‘Knucklehead’ knobbly pumpkins and lots more so grab a wheelbarrow and explore their 12-acre Pumpkin Patch! They are open throughout October so there is plenty of time to choose your perfect pumpkin.

Tickets are £2.50 each person (under 2s free), this includes entrance to the Pumpkin Patch, displays, entrance to the carving area and parking.
What else is on?
In addition to the enormous Pumpkin Patch and fun displays, Farrington's have lots more going on throughout October…

They have a carving marquee so you can carve your pumpkins straight after picking - which parents are sure to appreciate, they will clear up the mess so you can keep your kitchens clean!

There will be a children’s funfair from the 8th October to keep the kids entertained with fun rides and fairground games (charged per ride).

In proper farm style, Farmer Andy has built the ever-popular Straw Pool which is open for kids to jump around in, keeping them entertained while you sip on a coffee (or a beer!) from their bar.

The Witch’s Wood will be open where you will find the crash site of our resident witch, Whinny. Toast some marshmallows (£1) in her caldron and grab some sweets to keep your energy levels up while you pick pumpkins! (weekends and last week of October)

Tractor Trailer rides will be running daily (£1), so climb aboard and hold on tight for a bumpy ride across the farm (weekends and last week of October).

The Playbarn will be open as normal for further entertainment. They aren't taking bookings for this so just turn up on the day, but bear in mind this often gets busy.
What food options are available?
The Barn will be serving a range of food and drink to keep you going throughout the day.

If you want something lighter, The Snack Shack will be serving smaller snacks and takeaway drinks with plenty of undercover seating to rest your tired legs.

Of course, their popular Fish and Chip shop will be open throughout the Pumpkin Festival.

If table service is more your style, then Farrington's welcome you to take a seat in their cosy café, with a delicious autumnal menu on offer, making use of seasonal farm produce and local ingredients. Try their famous pumpkin soup or sip on a warming pumpkin spiced latte!
