11 places you can go pumpkin picking at across Liverpool this Halloween

15/10/2021

It’s time to p-p-p-pick up a pumpkin!


Halloween is just around the corner and the spooky festival wouldn’t be the same without a glowing pumpkin to welcome trick-or-treaters, or decorate your home with devilishly fab designs.

You can carve a smiley face or create a gruesome grin – either way it’s good fun and a great way to get into the spirit of things!

There are pumpkin patches a-plenty across and around Liverpool, so pull on your wellies and get wading in to one of these perfect places…

Claremont Farm, Old Clatterbridge Road, Bebington

They must have some cracking pumpkins down on Claremont Farm because they’ve got wheelbarrows ready to help haul them back to your car.

The Pumpkin Patch is open now between 10am to 4pm every day – and at weekends (and half term) they’ve even got a little fair. Each pumpkin is sold by weight with the average between £2-£4 but they have got some ‘gigantic’ ones this year, max £10. Pumpkins are on the PYO Strawberry Field (past farm shop, over the motorway bridge and first gate on the left) and for sale ‘until they’re gone’!

Windmill Animal Farm, Fish Lane, Burscough

With thousands of pumpkins to choose from you can make a day of it at Windmill Animal Farm.

You need to book a ticket for their Pumpkin Picking Adventure, but this gives you full access to the open farm attraction, as well as pumpkin picking privileges. Each ticket purchased (priced from £15.95) includes a pumpkin of your choice, and you can buy more pumpkins on the day.

All pumpkins are grown on the farm, and there are many different varieties and sizes to choose from. It can be muddy so don’t forget your wellies – and book early, this tends to fill up quickly!
