Where to go Pumpkin Picking In Northamptonshire 2019

In recent years Halloween has become a big deal in the UK (just ask my 4 year old who spends all year deciding on his costume!), plus pick your own fruit and veg has soared in popularity. So what is the logical outcome? That’s right- PYO pumpkins in Northamptonshire! With lots of outdoor family fun to be had, as well as some Instagram friendly photo opportunities, a local pumpkin patch is a great day out for everyone.
