Local places to go pumpkin picking this Halloween!

With Halloween rapidly approaching and socially-distanced events thin on the ground, we’ve compiled a list of local places to go pumpkin picking this year!

Although the Jack-o’-Lantern tradition originates in Ireland, it has spread across Europe and America, becoming a symbol of this spooky celebration!

There are several pumpkin farms near to Northern Lincolnshire:

Peaks Top Farm in Grimsby is opening its pumpkin patch for the second year running as of October 24, with prices varying between just £1-3.

The farm is open between 10am-4pm daily.

A spokesperson for Peaks Top Farm said:

“After such a difficult year for everyone, we hope being able to come out with the kids and have some fun in the fresh air, searching the perfect pumpkin will be good for everyone.

“We have lots of pumpkins in all different shapes and sizes which will be ideal for Halloween.

“Whether you carve a goolish face, have some for decorations or even want to eat some pumpkins – at Peaks Top Farm you can find whatever you want.”

Rand Farm Park in Market Rasen are currently offering a free pumpkin to every child who visits their Halloween event, which runs between October 23 and November 1.

Standard admission to the farm is £11.95.

On the 31st, adult admission is reduced to £6.50 – but be quick, as tickets are rapidly selling out!

Hall Farm Park, also in Market Rasen, is opening its pumpkin patch to the public from October 24 to November 1.

They are also hosting a black cat hunt with a special prize for the winners!

Finally, Pink Pig Farm in Scunthorpe are holding a pumpkin festival and scarecrow hunt for children this Autumn!

The event is available for booking from October 24 to November 1 between 10am and 4pm.

Adult admission costs £8 while children’s tickets cost £10.
