A Friendly, Family Farm

Spilmans isn't just any pumpkin patch; it's a family-owned gem that radiates warmth and genuine hospitality. From the moment you step onto the farm, you're welcomed by the Spilman family themselves. Their passion for pumpkins and all things Halloween is contagious, and they're always eager to share their love for this special season with visitors of all ages.

Spilmans Pumpkin Festival

This year is HUGE, with a pumpkin farm harbouring over 125,000 pumpkins!! Pumpkin picking at Spilman's Farm is an adventure that sparks the imagination of both young and old.

This pumpkin field is filled with rows upon rows of pumpkins in all shapes and sizes, you'll feel like you've stumbled into the heart of a storybook pumpkin patch. Head to any crop of pumpkin and start searching for your perfect one! Whether you want the misshapen, knobbly green pumpkin, to the rounded and brightest!

You'll find an array of actual pumpkin patches with beautiful pumpkin displays. You're sure to discover your favourite pumpkin here!

You might even be able to find a grey pumpkin or a ghost pumpkin (those are the white pumpkins!).

Then head to the carving barn to get really messy and creative! What spooky design will you carve out? Or are you looking to get all goofy and carve a funny face?!

Fun for All Ages

One of the most enchanting aspects of Spilman's Farm is its appeal to all generations. It's a place where grandparents can share cherished memories with their grandchildren and where parents can capture those unforgettable moments on camera.

As you stroll through the pumpkin patch, you'll see children giddy with excitement as they make their selections and parents smiling from ear to ear. Pumpkin picking here is not just an activity; it's a family tradition that's passed down through the generations.

What else can you find here? 

Spilams has lots of fun activities going on during their pumpkin festival! From settling down for some spooky stories with Pumpkinella to giant pipe rolling! Hop on the barrel train ride - The Flying Spilman, enjoy trailer and tractor rides and even the corn cannon! 

Not to mention the pumpkin slingshot, where you can shoot pumpkins straight off the slingshot - will you reach the castle? 

For those brave enough, why not embark on the spooky walk? It's said to be their scariest yet... 

Last but not least, let the fun take over as you enjoy the fairground rides!! 

Picture-Perfect Scenery

The farm's picturesque surroundings add to the enchantment. Tall, swaying cornfields, rustic barns, and scenic hills create the perfect backdrop for your Halloween-themed family photos.

Don't forget to capture those candid shots of your little ones trying to carry a pumpkin that's twice their size – those moments are pure gold! Also, why not come to the farm in your costumes? Whether you come as your favourite spooky character or an adorable witch!

There's plenty of photo opportunities here. Just make sure you bring a waterproof jacket and shoes in case there's wet weather!
