FARRINGTON'S PUMPKIN PICKING FESTIVAL 2023
Pick-your-own Pumpkin Patch near Bristol, Bath and Wells in Somerset
Our FAVOURITE event of the year! It's time to dust off your wellies for the annual Pumpkin Picking Festival at Farrington's Farm, the biggest pumpkin patch near Bristol and Bath surrounded by beautiful countryside.
Our mission is to give you a proper pumpkin picking experience as it should be, with all the pumpkins in the patch grown right here on our farm.
We grow a huge variety including your classic orange ‘Cinderella’ pumpkins, white ‘ghost’ pumpkins, knobbly ‘knucklehead’ pumpkins, tasty crown prince and lots more. Grab a wheelbarrow and explore!
You are required to choose a time slot when booking, this is your ARRIVAL time to the Pumpkin Patch. If you are booking the last slot of the day, we recommend arriving to the Pumpkin Patch at the beginning of your slot as it closes half an hour after the last time slot, i.e. if the last time slot of the day is 3pm-4pm, the Pumpkin Patch will close at 4.30pm.
You are more than welcome to arrive earlier than your time slot to make the most of the rest of Farrington's before you head to the Pumpkin Patch to pick your pumpkins!
Your ticket includes entrance to the Pumpkin Patch, displays, entrance to the carving space and parking.
You must purchase a ticket in advance to attend this event. Everyone needs a ticket except under 2s, on-duty carers and dogs! Your ticket does not include a pumpkin. You can purchase as many pumpkins as you like on the day. Please ensure you book the right date/time, as we cannot offer refunds or transfers. We recommend reading the Terms & Conditions and FAQs before booking.

Some useful things to note ahead of your visit to Farrington's Farm:
The Pumpkin Patch is not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs generally, while we do put pedestrian trackway, the event is held in a field which can be difficult to navigate wheelchairs and pushchairs.
Wheelbarrows are available for you to borrow on the day (subject to availability)
Our pumpkins are not sprayed for weeds so there aren't just pumpkin plants in the field! This is normal, but please wear long trousers, long-sleeved tops and wellies to protect yourselves. Please do not pick anything that isn't a pumpkin and supervise children at all times.
We welcome well-behaved dogs on leads in the Pumpkin Patch. Please make sure you pick up after them and put waste in the bins provided
This is an all-weather event (although it can get quite muddy after rain!). Please dress appropriately for the weather on the day
Smoking is not permitted in the Pumpkin Patch
