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.

Here’s a round up of the best PYO pumpkins near to Northamptonshire this year. In truth I could only find one PYO pumpkin patch actually in Northamptonshire, but there are a few others in our neighbouring counties which are worth a visit if you have access to transport.

West Lodge Rural Centre Desborough, nr Kettering

West Lodge is a great family day out at any time of year, but they really go all out for Halloween, with pumpkin carving, spooky tractor rides, ghost stories and much more running over half term.

Grove Farm PYO covers an impressive 80 acres and has a wide variety of fruit and veg available to pick from June to October, including pumpkins in September and October.

Cattows Farm have a staggering 100,00 pumpkins, squashes and gourds available to pick from 1st October. They also have a farm shop and tearoom on site. They are situated in the heart of the National Forest, so it’s a great base for exploring the woodland.
