We may have a new tradition. We discovered a small farm not too far away from where we live where they grow and sell pumpkins. We haven’t got many of these around here and we were intrigued so 2 weeks ago we decided to go there and see if it might be worth a yearly trip.
As you might expect, there are pumpkins everywhere – different kinds, different sizes, different colours. I loved that.
There was also a really cute pig that, unfortunately, did not want to pose for a proper close-up.
But seriously, if you love pumpkins as much as I do, this place is a paradise.
It was such a perfect day for an autumn/Halloween themed trip!
This old chap was standing guard.
And they have bunnies, too! Huge bunnies.
There was also a barn where you could go and carve/paint your pumpkin — and then either take it with you or leave it there on display.
I kept getting Children of the Corn vibes. 😛
They have pumpkin pyramids!
Just look at that. Isn’t it gorgeous?
The weather was truly perfect that day.
Mum loved it there.
They even have a corn maze!
It may not look it from the photos but it was really busy.
If you dare, you can make your way up to the spooky tower. You have to climb up a couple of wooden ladders to get there but it’s definitely worth it.
And before you go, you can have their home-made pumpkin soup. We had some and I can vouch for its deliciousness.
We spent there almost an hour and a half and we bought 4 amazing pumpkins.
And this was what we drove through on the way home. It was an incredible trip and I’m looking forward to it becoming a tradition for us.
