The History of P..P..Pick up a Pumpkin

P..P..Pick up a Pumpkin began in 2012 in a small field next to the shop. James would wait patiently for customers to choose their pumpkin and call him over to cut it off with his gran's long handled secateurs. Over the years it has grown and grown into bigger sections of the farm and has created itself into a Pumpkin Festival! We are known for miles around as the 'Pumpkin Farm Shop'. We adapt each year to customer requests from the extra food to the gift tent! All of the stands are cooking or selling many of our home made products as a showcase for the foods you can buy in the shop to take home and enjoy.

P..P..Pick up a Pumpkin is a wonderful experience for all ages - with plenty of activities to please the whole family! Not to mention a unique photo opportunity!

We are situated on the main road between Newark & Mansfield (A617) in Kirklington, Nottinghamshire.

Remember to TAKE CARE in the field! The Pumpkins are grown where you pick them so the ground may be uneven and muddy. Wellies or boots are the best footwear.
The stalks of the Pumpkins can be prickly and break off so please pick the Pumpkin up at the base!
