Pumpkin Day 2015 – rain did not stop play!

Every year our legendary pumpkin day is a big event here at Riverford, and this year was no different. Despite a little rain, everyone was wellied-up and in true autumn spirit.

We welcomed over 6000 people across our four farms, along with our new London event which we held at Vauxhall City Farm.
The day saw visitors get involved in pumpkin carving, tractor rides, farm walks, worm digging and much more; alongside the activities was live music, including a fantastic ukulele band, and lots of tasty autumnal food.

“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.

This year we opened our poly tunnel on our Devon farm, to show off the fantastic herbs and edible flowers we grow for the Riverford Field Kitchen Restaurant. We also introduced cookery demos, and onion stringing, which were both a huge success. As with every year, we saw some terrific pumpkins carved too!
