Beech House Farm is opening its gates once more and inviting visitors to pick their own pumpkins. Will you choose an orange one? Maybe a white one? Do you fancy something a bit different? Perhaps a blue one? A decorative gourde? A stripy one? Or a good cooking variety for spiced pumpkin cake or warming bowl of soup?
We have external caterers on site, cooking up good quality, locally sourced, British food for our visitors, so be sure to make time for a coffee and a cake, a mouth watering lunch or afternoon snack whilst you’re vising us.
Enjoy the pumpkin trail, which has been designed with the younger visitors and families in mind, and make the most of the country air and open space. Make sure you grab a photo opportunity with the tractor!
There will also be 12.5kg and 25kg bags of potatoes grown on the farm available to buy and the opportunity to book your Christmas veg box, full of amazing produce grown right on the farm.
