Pick your own pumpkin for Halloween

Everyone loves a pumpkin at Halloween, right? And Wales has a wealth of pumpkin growers opening their patches for you to pick your own, in the comparatively Covid-safe fresh air. At Pumpkin Picking Patch in St. Nicholas, there are 55,000 of the giant orange fruits to choose from, so grab a wheelbarrow and get selecting.

Pencoed Fach Organic Farm in Blackwood offers an eco-friendly option for an organic jack o’ lantern, while Poundffald Farm in the Gower lets you carve your pumpkin character on site, or opt for a more magical Halloween with a wand and broom-making workshop. There’ll be scrumptious doughnut treats too – tricks optional.
