A free Pumpkin Day is being held at Riverford’s organic farm at ‘spooky’ Sacrewell this Saturday, taking place between 11am and 4pm.

The fun event is open to all ages, and as well as picking your own pumpkin from the fields you’ll also be able to carve it ready for Halloween on October 31.

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

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

James Negus, who helps to run Riverford’s farm at Sacrewell 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 between 11am and 4pm for a day of excitement and fun.

Entry to the event is free and free parking will be provided on site. All the details can be found online at or by calling 01803 762059.
