Hello October.

A post shared by Kenyon Hall Farm (@kenyonhallfarm) on

Kenyon Hall Farm has become one of the North West’s best pumpkin patches, having planted their first pumpkins more than 30 years ago. This year, guests are invited to pick their own down on the farm from the outdoor patch, with more than 15,000 pumpkins grown this year or a huge indoor display of ready-picked pumpkins in all shapes, sizes and colours. Throughout October, guests can check out their pumpkin patch, before choosing one of their own to carve. New for this year, you can create memories with Kenyon Hall Farm’s unique, pumpkin-tastic photo backdrops, so grab a wheelbarrow and pick out your pumpkin straight from the patch. There will also be Halloween characters, carving inspiration and pumpkin-themed food, drink and gift ideas on offer. Pumpkins are priced between ยฃ1-ยฃ12 depending on size and you can also produce local produce from their farm shop too. The Warrington farm will be limiting numbers to make it safe and ensure plenty of space for social distancing. Tickets have almost sold out but the farm hopes to release more slots and there may be some last minute availability, so look out!

2. Church View Farm

Open every day from 3rd October, Church View Farm is ready to welcome back guests for their PYO Pumpkin season, with over 5,000 pumpkins planted so there should be plenty available to pick this year. Guests will be able to grab a wheel barrow per household and pick their perfect pumpkin, before heading to the fairground or ice cream van. The event in Lydiate, north of Liverpool, will also have a photographer present (pre-booking required) where you can troll around the massive pumpkin patch whilst taking some seasonal snaps for the ‘gram, or a ghoulish greetings card, perhaps. There will be delicious hot food available and you can warm up with a mug of hot chocolate. Dogs are welcome to tag along too as long as they are kept on the lead and you clean up after them. No ticket is required and no entry fee is charged, you just pay for the pumpkins that you pick, but you can also make a donation to Woodlands Hospice. Pumpkins are ยฃ4 each or 3 for ยฃ10, plus there are some tiny ones for 50p.
