Come pumpkin picking, with oodles of varieties to choose from, we know we have your perfect pumpkin. Great fun for all generations!

Mr Pumpkin is a fourth generation arable farm, located in Morley, approximately 4 miles outside of Derby City Centre. We first opened to pumpkin pickers in 2017, planting around 7,500 pumpkins for people to choose from. We were blown away by all the positive feedback and happy smiley faces, so what did we do….we grew EVEN MORE!

This year we have planted almost 90,000 different pumpkins, and over 40 different varieties to choose from. Orange pumpkins, white pumpkins, star shaped pumpkins, giant pumpkins, teeny tiny pumpkins, warty pumpkins, striped pumpkins, ugly pumpkins, we really do have the perfect pumpkin for every pumpkin household this Halloween.

In order to continue to manage numbers attending and minimise queues, we operate Mr Pumpkin as ticket only.

We have our very own Pumpkin Trail, all donations for which go to the Air Ambulance. Over the last few years we have raised a pumpkintastic £12,823 for this very worthy charity. The Pumpkin Trail is a fun thing to do, either with or without little pumpkins. Pick up a trail sheet from the trail hut near to the entrance, and they’ll send you on your way around and outside of the pumpkin farm, with pumpkins to spot on the way, will you unscramble the letters to find the spooky word for a sweet treat??

Kieren will be also be back with us for his seventh year with his teacups and bungees and the popular bouncy castle. We also have hot and cold food and drinks provided by the wonderful people at Oakfield Farm, based only just up the road in Stanley Common.

Come and enjoy some good old family fun down on the pumpkin farm this year!

See you soon.
