A Guide To Pumpkin Picking In The UK

by Toni Olukiran

5min read

Spooky season is upon us, so it's time to get our pumpkins ready and carved. Why not get yours from a pumpkin patch? Here’s our guide to pumpkin picking in the UK, so you can get carving wherever you are.

Halloween is almost here, and one of the best parts for most of us is getting into the spooky spirit with a good pumpkin. So make pumpkin picking your weekend activity, take a couple of friends for a catch up (it's also very Instagrammable, FYI) or the family for a nice day out. You can get fresh, great quality pumpkins and you can determine the size, making it a way better option than ordering one online.

So, wondering where you can get your pumpkin? Here are just a few farms that you can pick your own pumpkin at across the UK.

London and South East

Foxes Farm Produce, Basildon

Wash Rd, Basildon SS15 4BP, England

Foxes Farm is a lovely day out for all of the family. There’s plenty of space for running around, and a children’s play area. For any older children there’s a fun corn maze so they can also get their share of fun and games. There are, of course, lots of great quality pumpkins to pick from, in a range of different shapes and sizes, so you’re bound to find the one(s) for you.
