My son is obsessed with pumpkins so I have been busy compiling a list of places to go pumpkin picking in Yorkshire. When he was little he even used to take a mini pumpkin to bed with him. Nowadays he insists on keeping them until they really can’t be kept any longer.
Top tip for visiting a pumpkin patch in Yorkshire – take your wellies and your waterproof coats.
It may also be an idea to check with the attraction that everything is as advertised the day before you visit.
