Pick your own pumpkins at Lotmead

By Barrie Hudson - 20 September 2022


Swindon will be getting spooky again this year thanks to the return of Halloween pumpkins at Lotmead Pick Your Own.

From Saturday, 8 October, families can pick their own pumpkins in a dedicated area of the farm.  

The full Pick Your Own area, which offers fruit and vegetables through the season, will be open until pumpkins sell out at the end of October.

The popular family attraction in Wanborough, Swindon won best national Pick Your Own of the Year 2022 at the Farm Retail awards earlier this year.

Farm Manager John Meaden is looking forward to welcoming families again this Halloween.

He said: “We are delighted to announce pumpkin picking at Lotmead again this October. 

“A variety of different sized pumpkins, squashes and gourds will be available whilst stocks last in the run up to Halloween.  We will also have carving kits and accessories, and plenty of spooky inspiration to get everyone in the Halloween spirit.   

“This year there is no booking, just turn up. Please keep an eye on our social media channels for updates on availability and opening hours this Autumn.”
