Pumpkin Picking Near Me

Looking for “pumpkin picking near me”? A visit to a pumpkin patch to pick your own pumpkins is the perfect way to get into the autumn spirit, and it’s even better for that pre-Halloween fun!

Pumpkin picking is becoming more popular each year, with all shapes, sizes and colours to be found. It also makes for a  fantastic family day out, and the fun continues all the way home when you get to carve it too. So, what are you waiting for?

Here’s our biggest EVER guide to the 55 best places to go pumpkin picking near you!

Top Tips for Pumpkin Picking

Never been pumpkin picking before? Don’t fret, it’s easy peasy! Here’s some top tips we recommend when pumpkin picking!

  • Wrap up warm! Most pumpkin-picking patches are on an open field. And if it’s a windy day, you don’t want to end up being cold.
  • Wear wellies – again since most pumpkin patches are on a field, it’s best to wear the right shoes!
  • Look for firm pumpkins – no one wants to go home with a mouldy pumpkin! So, make sure it’s a firm pumpkin, to make sure it lasts until Halloween.
  • Bring a fully charged phone – seems like a no-brainer (I mean who really leaves the house without their charged phone?!). BUT at pumpkin patches, there’s going to be plenty of photo opportunities to snap, so make sure your phone is charged!
  • Check the pumpkin picking location to see if they have wheelbarrows to borrow. If they don’t, we suggest bringing sturdy bags or life-long bags that are strong enough to hold the pumpkins.
  • Don’t forget to bring some money – plenty of patches offer food and drinks. So, if you want to treat yourself to something small, make sure you have the means to do so.
