Saturday 24th October saw us hold our annual Pumpkin Days across our farm sites. We welcomed almost 6000 people to our farms to revel in autumnal glory. There were lots of seasonal activities to enjoy including apple pressing, onion stringing and, of course, pumpkin carving.

“Every year I’m overwhelmed with how much people enjoy Pumpkin Day, there’s always such a buzz on the farm. Thank you to all who came and made this year as special as the last.” said Guy.

As part of the fun and games we had giant pumpkins grown by our very own Ed Scott. Visitors were invited to guess the weight of our giant pumpkins to win a vegetarian Riverford recipe box. Visitors entered in their hundreds. Congratulations to the winners below!
