Sat 19 - Thu 31 Oct Farmer Copleys Pumpkin Festival 2019


We’ve planted the pumpkins and the British weather is working it’s magic. Around 130,000 in total taking around 8-9 days with a team of us. Hard work but it will all be worth it when we see fields of loads of different colours come October time!

Our Pumpkin Festival will be here before you know it and it’s guaranteed to be bigger and better than before! We’ve ordered the seeds, over 37 different varieties for 2019 so we’ll have pumpkin plants of every shape size and colour, to ensure you find your perfect pumpkin.

There will be a rainbow of pumpkins, red, green, white, blue, black, yellow, mixed, warty and of course orange! We have over 20 acres that we have grown for you to choose your perfect pumpkin from. Don your wellington boots, wrap up warm and head to the fields for a fun-filled day of good, honest, pumpkin related fun.

What’s on during the festival?
- Pick Your Own pumpkins - choose from our thousands upon thousands of pumpkins of all different shapes, sizes and colours.
- Carve your pumpkins on site with our helpers. We’ll sort all the mess out so you don’t have to!
- Eat pumpkins! Discover that there’s more to the pumpkin than just carving, with delicious treats including pumpkin soup, pumpkin sausages and, of course, pumpkin pie.
- Storytime with the ‘Not So Wicked Witch’ and keep an eye out for the Pumpkin Princess who is looking for her perfect pumpkin.
- We’ve got loads of activities and fun going on, including our assault course, teacups, bucking pumpkin and corn cannons.
- Check out the tasty treats from our Moo Café or Witches Kitchen and visit our award-winning Farm Shop to take some of our delights home with you.
- Beer and Gin Shed
