Pumkin farm

Hey readers,

As we are approaching Halloween and as an item to do on my autumn bucket list we ventured to a pumpkin farm.
Where we were on a mission to find a pumpkin for Halloween. We were not let down as they had tons of pumpkins in all shapes and colours. We primilarly wanted to big a traditional big orange pumkin. 
The boys loved going in the cart and being wheeled around whilst looking at the different pumpkins. It had a great vibe with a lot of families looking for a pumkin son we felt right at home.
We have never been to a pumkin patch before so was lovely to explore something new to explore with the boys. The place was great as it had not just pumpkins but fun Halloween decorations for the boys to look at. My eldest particularly loved the really big spider decorations hanging up on the ceiling.  There was a little room with glow in the dark cob webs and a table with skulls and Halloween parafenia.
We brought some spiced homemade pumkin cake which was devoured in seconds.
We walked around picking a suitable pumkin to take home for Halloween. There was plenty to chose from.
We also picked a crown Prince pumpkin (the green one) as we were advised it is the best pumkin to make sweet pumkin tart with. Which is what we intend to do make as well as carve a  pumkin for the boys. My son also picked up a small yellow pumkin (sweet dumpling squash).
Overall it was a great experience and definitely something I would recommend to do with young children for Halloween.

Thanks for reading X

  2. I've never even heard of being able to go to a pumpkin farm – what a great idea for Halloween, especially when there is no much spookiness to go with it. You look like you had a great time! Thanks for sharing with #bestandworst and see you soon x

  3. Wow! That's a lot of pumpkins! Looks like you had a fantastic time choosing your pumpkins. I had wondered which pumpkin was best for pumpkin pie, I will need to remember that. I can't believe the size of that carving pumpkin, that will make a fantastic one to carve up. I have just found out there is a pumpkin farm near us, so we'll need to go there next year!
    Thanks for linking up to #Whatevertheweather 🙂 x
