Pick-your-own fun at Pumpkin Picking Patch Fordingbridge
EVERY MEMBER of the family can have plenty of fun in the great outdoors at Pumpkin Picking Patches this October — and there will be lots of the Halloween favourites to go around, with in excess of 200,000 pumpkins planted, incorporating 32 varieties, including Crown Prince, Cinderella Pumpkin, Casparitas, the small Munchkins, the warty Knucklehead and the big white Polar Bear.
This year there are FOUR pumpkin-filled sites, each one offering pick-your-own pumpkins, as well as Halloween crafts — perfect for little people who love to make things, as well as bigger people who enjoy carving pumpkins for the big day itself and who enjoy cooking with these versatile fruits.
The four sites are in Bath (Somerset), Cardiff (South Wales), Fordingbridge (Hampshire) and Sompting (West Sussex). Bath, Cardiff and Fordingbridge will open on 10-11, 17-18 and 24-31 October, from 9.30am until 4pm, while Sompting will open on 17-18 and 24-31 October during the same hours. Every site has its own large car park and parking and entry is free — yes totally FREE!
At the Fordingbridge Pumpkin Picking Patch, located at Bickton Manor Farm on the A338 between Ringwood and Downton on the edge of the New Forest (postcode: SP6 2HA), visitors will find in excess of 25,000 awesome pumpkins ripe for the picking on the nine-acre. Additionally, children (and adults, of course) can hunt for Toad, check out the amazing new photo opportunities and the famous pumpkin house. Also why not try making your own witch’s broom — for flying as opposed to brushing! — or craft your own magic wand, or tin can bat. Hot and cold snacks will be on sale.
Site opens at 9.30am until 4pm. Entry and car parking are FREE
