Pumpkin Patch at Lymefield

Pumpkin Patch at Lymefield 

Lymefield Garden Centre is hosting its annual charity Halloween event on Saturday 21st, Sunday 22nd, Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th October.

Starting at 10am. each day, you can book your half slot to wander around in the Pumpkin Patch. Whilst you are in the pumpkin field, take lots of photos with all the specially gathered vehicles & spooky extras.  Please bring your wellies, our fields are used for grazing sheep so they can get muddy in wet weather. The field is outdoors so maybe bring an umbrella too if it’s raining.

For the little ones, we do have wheelbarrows to help them carry their special pumpkin indoors!

Come down to choose your own Pumpkin from the Pumpkin Patch.

When you have found your pumpkin, take it indoors to carve. Inside there is plenty of carving equipment & messy areas to create your pumpkin faces. The fabulous volunteers from The Bureau will be available to do the hardest part, as they will take the top of your pumpkin & scoop out the middle for you!

Raising funds for charity

We are donating money from all pumpkins sold to a very special local charity, The Bureau. This fabulous charity is helping people in Glossop & surrounding villages, with improving their well-being. It works in all sorts of areas of life, from support groups for carers to providing volunteer opportunties. Click on this link to find more….

Halloween Treats

After all this hard work, choosing & creating your pumpkins, please make use of our refreshments in the Farm Shop & Tea Room. If you would like to book a table as part of your visit, please call 01457 764686 to make your reservation. Alternatively, our Farm Shop has a great selection of freshly made sandwiches, cakes & drinks to take away.
