Sunnyfields Farm isn’t our usual ‘pick your own’ farm we would go to, but I found out about it when I was writing my October half term round up as they are holding a Pumpkin Festival from the start to end of October. A friend of mine visited and said it was great, so on Saturday we decided to pull on our wellies and waterproofs and head down to the fields of orange and see what we could find!
When we pulled up, we were directed in as the car park was absolutely jam-packed. The first thing I noticed were how many happy, smiling faces there were, pumpkins tucked under armpits, kids and dogs being pushed along in wheelbarrows and a really good feel family vibe.
As it had been raining for what felt like the whole week, I got the kids into their waterproofs and wellies and off we went. After a few splashes in muddy puddles we went into the farm where we were greeted with a mound of pre-picked pumpkins of all all shapes, sizes and colours.
Bypassing the already picked pumpkins housed in the marquee, we grabbed a wheelbarrow and set off down the field to go digging for our own!
