Pumpkin Picking Fun

After a trip out with my brother today, we visited Maxeys Farm Shop in Kirklington for a spot of pumpkin picking.

First of all, we looked at the rather awesome huge pumpkins that they'd grown, quite how I have no idea!

Next up we walked up the pumpkin and halloween themed path to where all of the pumpkins were grown, all the pumpkins on the path had been carved so it gave us some ideas.

There were so many to chose from so we had to walk around and check them all out.

There were some really perfect pumpkins...

Some rather knobbly pumpkins...

And then some really rude pumpkins...

I love how Maxeys has setup the pumping picking area, it's fun and gets everyone into the spirit, there are wheelbarrows for you to carry your pumpkins back to the car and and a little something extra for the kids. We certainly had lots of fun choosing them and can't wait to carve them in a few weeks for halloween.


  1. This is brilliant, thank you x Katharine Maxey, Maxeys Farm Shop

    1. My pleasure, we are regular visitors and this just made the day extra special.

  2. I love pumpkin patches - I have none at all local to me so we won't be going this year but I do plan on finding one and going next year!

    Fantastic photo's here, I love the look of this patch!!

    1. It was a lot of fun, I think this is the only one local such a shame as we had so much fun choosing one.

  3. That looks like great fun! Lovely photos. (@FCWedding on twitter).
