PUMPKIN WEEK

This is an annual event held in the school half term before Halloween. We started five years ago and its become a major date on our calendar. So much so that this year we welcomed over 10,000 visitors to pick pumpkins grown here on the farm. We were so busy in 2015 that for the 2016 season we grew 30,000 pumpkins from 12,000 plants. The field looked really beautiful and we were fortunate enough to have really good weather too.

Dates for this year have now been confirmed!
