Pumpkin Picking Patches 2021

A fun family activity for all ages out in the fresh autumnal air.

📸 thank you for letting us use this gorgeous pic @hb_photographyuk

Pick your own pumpkins is definitely a tradition in our house now. I love it! There’s pumpkins (obvs!), wheelbarrows, fun photo opportunities, crisp autumnal air and often lots of mud! A great couple of hours of fun with your little ones (or even bigger ones) – so much more than just grabbing one off the super market shelves.

There are now soooo many pick-your-own pumpkin patches in Devon, so scroll on and look for one that takes your fancy and don’t forget to tag us on instagram with your gorgeous pics – I can’t wait to see them. #littledevonlife

With over 50 varieties of Pumpkin, Squash and Gourd on offer this year, we really do have something for everyone. From wrinkly ones, knobbly ones, shiny pumpkins in an array of different shapes and sizes, to lumpy squashes and quirky gourds, they are all here waiting for you.

So what are you waiting for! Lace up your boots, slip on your gloves (recommended) and come on down. Grab a wheelbarrow (supplied) and start picking through those rambling vines to find that perfect pumpkin! 

Booking through our online ticketing system is not essential but we do recommend that you do book in advance in order to take advantage of our online admission discount. All under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. 

Any pumpkins picked will be subject to an additional charge, and unfortunately are not included in the admission price to the pumpkin patch. Like last year, prices start from just £1. 

Dogs? Unfortunately due to hygiene reasons only guide dogs will be permitted onsite. If you have to travel with your dog you can carefully walk them in the car park, but they must stay in the car when you enter the rest of the event. Thank you. 

​Free car park, access to the pumpkin patch and lots of photo opportunities for the all important Instagram! Remember @thejollygroupuk #jollypumpkin

Shute Fruit and Produce: Pick your own Pumpkin

Shute Farm, Newton Road, Bishopsteignton, TQ14 0PN
From mid-October 11-5pm (Closed Mondays and Rainy days)
No need to prebook
Shute Fruit and Produce website

Shute Fruit and Produce is a family-run Pick Your Own farm by farm by Lori Reich and David Lamboll.  Their pumpkins and gourd-geous squashes are ready for picking generally by mid-October (date to be decided by the pumpkins).  Prices of pumpkins range from £1 – £5.  A range of squashes such as Harlequin, Crown Prince and Kabocha are also available. There are no buildings (including no toilets) available for the public to shelter from the wet- so come dressed for the weather (and with an empty bladder)!

Arguably, the prettiest pick your own in Devon, it boasts views of boats bobbing along the Teign estuary and you might even be fortunate enough to see the Flying Scotsman chugging past, all from the pick your own fields.

There’s also lots of other pick your own available. Full list on the website but generally at this time of year runner beans, french beans, raspberries, etc.  For parents, we also sell sloes so they can make their own gin ready in time for Christmas.

Well behaved dogs are welcome, but not amongst the fruit and vegetables.
