Pumpkin picking at Llynclys hall farm shop

It’s already nearly that time of year where the crisp leaves have fallen on the floor, the tights and boots come out and it’s time to get pumpkin picking ready for Halloween. There is nothing quite as fun as going to a pumpkin patch and selecting a pumpkin that’s just right for you and your family. In our local area there are few quite a few pumpkin patches but one that we really loved visiting last year was Llynclys Hill farm shop. The pumpkin display I don’t think can be beaten and they are striking to see.

As the name suggests there is a farm and a farm shop. It’s very much a working farm to which I think adds to the atmosphere when visiting. The farm shop has all sorts – an array of produce inside including butter, vegetables, sausages and fresh organic milk. When we visited there was even a fresh coffee stall set up for a nice hot java whilst perusing around pumpkins.

The pumpkin display and patch

The pumpkin display is extraordinary to see – hundreds of pumpkins stacked high with an array of sizes from tiny little munchkin pumpkins to massive pumpkins that you couldn’t even roll with a push because they are so big. There are also pumpkins and sqaushes indifferent types of colours – blue, white, traditional orange spotted green yellow you name it they’ve got it, thousands of pumpkins! The boys especially the loved all of the different textured pumpkins with knobbles and skin markings to make the pumpkin that little bit more individual. There are also pumpkins with really long stems which would look good in autumn display.

Along with the pumpkin display and play barn filled with hay bales, toys and yep – more pumpkins, there is a huge field where you can PYO pumpkin and take home, there are thousands and it’s amazing to see!
