20 Pumpkin Patches To Visit For The Best Family Fun (And Pics)

Tickets for pumpkin picking are now on sale across the UK. Here's the pick of the crop πŸŽƒ

Put away your summer clothes because pumpkin patch season is here – and it’s time to celebrate all things autumnal again.

Pumpkin picking has become a much-loved trend for kids and big kids alike, not least because it provides the perfect backdrop for a seasonal snap. Come on, we know you’re itching to post that pic.

Researchers from DIYS.com have looked at Instagram data for 200 popular pumpkin patches in the UK to determine which is the most picture-perfect.

The team crowned Cannon Hall Farm in South Yorkshire the top patch for the gram, as it had the largest amount of associated hashtags (a whopping 17,221). Doddington Hall in Lincolnshire came in second place with 16,740 hashtags, and Tulleys Farm in West Sussex completed the top three, with 13,723.

The nation’s farms are offering far more than a photo op. You’ll find fancy dress competitions, pumpkin carving classes and more at these family-friendly pop-ups.

Most pumpkin patches open in early October, but tickets are on sale now – and many venues sold out last year. The search term β€œpumpkin patch” saw an increase of 90.5% on Google Trends last week, so get your skates on and book a slot.
