Last weekend we have finally visited Foxes Farm Pumpkin Patch, which I’ve been seeing all over Instagram lately.
When I was a child my grandmother used to grow pumpkins in her garden and I remember, that every autumn we used to get at least one giant pumpkin that would last us for ages.
Halloween only became popular when I grew up, when we were children, it wasn’t a thing in Latvia at all and we only knew about Halloween from American movies. I still don’t really like dressing up and carving pumpkins (what a waste of a squash). But I’ve always wanted to visit a pumpkin patch. All those American photos looked great!
So when I heard that there is one just outside London and I made sure we visited it before it shuts at the end of October. It is a great place to stroll around, pick up a few pumpkins and take tons of photos. It is definitely a family kind of place but because we were there just after opening time at 10am it wasn’t too crowded.
We got 4 pumpkins to take home, and they are now waiting to be cooked. Oh and you can pay by card there too, which is brilliant!
Overall it is a great way to spend a Sunday morning and get in that autumnal mood.
You can get more information on their website www.foxesfarmproduce.co.uk. They also do Christmas tree markets later in the year!
