It’s Pumpkin Picking Time!

It’s that time of year when the fields are full of pumpkins waiting to be picked by you!

Whether you are looking for the perfect pumpkin to carve or make the best doorstep display there are lots of options to select your pumpkin here in Mid Devon.  We are very lucky to have so many fantastic farm shops and farms offering this autumn festive experience. Get your wellies on and head out to grab your pumpkins at any of the following venues:

Halberton Court Farm Shop 

PYO Pumkins at Halberton Court Farm Shop open 6 days a week Monday to Saturday 8.30am to 5pm from 9 October 2021. You only pay for the cost of the pumpkin depending on its size. After picking your chosen pumpkins, why not complete the trip and visit the Swan’s Neck Café for some refreshments!

They have a great spooky video promoting their orange field at the moment- check it out here:
