Country Pumpkins, Little Marcle, Ledbury HR8 2LD
“We’re delighted to announce that Country Pumpkins will be ready for picking on Saturday 8th October!
It seems the drought and heatwave has brought them on a little sooner, so come and pick ‘whilst stocks last’! Picking early is a great idea, as you can keep them out of the rain, which will help them to store much longer, right up to Halloween….and beyond… for a lovely autumn display!”
Pumpkin picking back from 08/10/22
In order to join us for pumpkin picking, you must book a slot before you visit.
We grew our first 2 acres of pumpkins (pick your own) in 2020 and had a very successful first year at Gilbert’s Farm, Little Marcle. It was so successful in fact, that we decided to do it all over again in 2022!
Our convenient location enables local people to spend a day picking their own pumpkins for decoration, celebration and for their own culinary delights, fresh from our own fields!y o
Guess the weight competition
We carried on the tradition of asking our visitors to guess the weight of the largest pumpkin on site!
We are delighted to announce that Seth Britton gave the closest guess (just 40 grammes out!). Both Seth and his gran have won a bottle of Champagne and the big white Casper Pumpkin, which weighed in at 9.54Kgs!
Well done Seth, and a big Thankyou to ALL who kindly made a guess and donated to such a worthy cause.
All proceeds from the competition will go to Brain Tumour Research.
