Birchfield Farm’s brilliant Pumpkin Festival 2021 is now underway, running daily until 31st October! The staff have been checking on the pumpkins and they are looking fabulous in the sunshine. Open 7 days a week, no booking required! Saturday /Sunday we will be opening at 9am instead of the usual 10 am for PYO pumpkins and coffee’s. The farm yard will still be opening at 10am.
For all the pre-schoolers out there – the farm is much quieter in the week – so come down and make the most of all our facilities! As well as the pumpkin patch, our farm will be open as normal. The maize maze is still open and we’ll be doing tractor rides every weekend and throughout school holidays (weather dependent!)
So get your wellies on and come down!
