Pumpkin Picking At Farringtons Farm

I really wanted to go Pumpkin Picking this year! It's something I've wanted to do for a long time now, but we never found the time, or the right place to go, or my little ones were too little. This year we headed to Farrington's Farm near Bristol to pick our own pumpkins (and take 100 photos)!

As well as the pumpkin patch itself, there is also a farm shop (plus a few other delightful shops too!), a soft play area and a cafe!

It was sunny, but slightly chilly when we arrived so we were wrapped up in cosy clothes, and our first stop was of course - the pumpkin patch! I didn't really know what to expect, as I've never been anywhere like this before but it was so exciting! I couldn't believe how vast the field was, and how many pumpkins there were! 

There were pumpkins in all different shapes, colours and sizes. Absolutely teeny dinky little ones, ranging to monstrously huge (too huge for a pregnant woman to even attempt to lift!) Orange ones, yellow ones, white ones and green ones! We let my little ones have a small one each, and I couldn't resist getting one too.

After we washed and paid for our pumpkins, we headed out for a fun tractor ride around the field! It was super bumpy, and quite fast! But it was nice to have a little sit down.

Lastly we went to the Playbarn, for a nice cup of tea and for my little ones to have a run around and burn whatever energy they had left. 

All in all, it was really such a fun day, and a great way to get into the Halloween/Autumn spirit! I definitely want to head back there again next year, and make it a bit of a tradition.

{The pumpkins vary in price, depending on size, but the activities cost £3 per child, which includes the tractor ride, pumpkin carving, face painting, a film and more!}
