It’s pumpkin season!
That means it’s the time of year to go out and get your pumpkin from a local farmer, and get some gorgeous pictures to boot. I’ve researched the patches in Yorkshire you can visit, and linked their websites below. I’ve even got the postcode so you can pop it into your Satnav.
Remember, this time of year the weather can be incredibly unpredictable so make sure you pop some wellies on – you can get pretty deep into the fields to pick the best pumpkin that way. Its also etiquette to not take pets along with you to the farms – especially working farms which may have animals that can be startled by dogs.
