The season of mists and mellow fruitfulness is upon us, which means its nearly time to go pumpkin picking in Devon!

Last year this was one of our autumn highlights. The kids dressed up in their Halloween finery and we headed to our local pumpkin patch where there was an astonishing collection of gourds in all shapes, sizes and colours – perfect for decorating our doorstep.

We look forward to repeating this happy harvest this October. If you fancy picking up a pumpkin or two to turn into a jack-o-lantern and or try out a tasty recipe using the spoils, read on for where to find pumpkin patches around Devon this year.

To help you find where to pick pumpkins near you, I’ve split this guide into South, East, Mid and West Devon.

Some details were still to be confirmed when this post was published at the beginning of September – pumpkin growing can’t be rushed! So check with each venue for the latest information.
