A free Pumpkin Day is being held at Riverford’s organic farm at Sacrewell, Peterborough, on Saturday, 24 October between 11am and 4pm

The event is open to all, and as well as picking your pumpkin from the fields you’ll be able to carve it ready for Halloween.

There will be tractor rides and the opportunity for a stroll around the farm to spot some wildlife. Plus, plenty of indoor activities in one of Riverford’s barns including cooking demonstrations, live music, face painting, apple pressing, chili stringing, and storytelling.

Snacks and light-bites made using fresh, seasonal ingredients from the fields will also be available.

James Negus helps to run Riverford’s farm at Sacrewell, he said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming everyone to the farm to pick and carve their pumpkin. The pumpkin crop this year is excellent and with plenty of indoor and outdoor activities taking place it’ll be a fun day whatever the weather.”

There is no need to book in advance for Riverford’s Pumpkin Day, just turn up on the day. Entry is free and free parking is provided. All the details can be found at www.riverford.co.uk/sacrewell or by calling 01803 762059.
