on the farm
Join us this autumn here at Birchfield for our fabulous pumpkin festival!
Make sure you pack your wellie or boots as you'll be picking from 1000s of pumpkins all of grown in the fields . We have Big ones , small ones , orange , green , white and warty ones . You'll be sure to find your perfect pumpkin.
Pumpkins can be heavy so you'll need to collect a wheel barrow to help bring them back to the farm carefully (you don't want to bruise them)
Now this is where creativity begins -The carving Barn !
Weather it's spooky , scary or happy you can create what ever design you want on your pumpkin with help from the staff.
Leave the mess with us By feeding the slimy insides of the pumpkin you don't want to the hungry pigs in the farm yard.
FANCY DRESS COMPETITION
Each day there will be prizes to be won for the best dressed ! Adults as well , to we want to see you getting in the Halloween spirit too.
Warm up in our Cafe with a delicious Hot chocolate, home made food and cakes or sample our Spooky flavours of ice cream.
The fun doesn't stop there, We have :

Can we bring picnic?
Yes we have picnic benches however they are all out doors.
Is it wheel chair accessible?
There are no steps to the pumpkin patch however it is a field so will be very uneven ground, both the cafe and farm yard are suitable for wheelchairs. Parking is usually in the field however if you let a member of staff know we can park you much closer to the patch.
