Pumpkin Festival is back at Ridgeway Farm!

Pumpkin Festival is back at Ridgeway Farm!

As the leaves start to fall, the days get darker and homemade stews are the perfect homemade meal, it can only mean one thing… HALLOWEEN is on it’s way. 🎃🎃🎃

This year is our 3rd Pumpkin Festival and it’s back, bigger and better than ever before! 

Get your wellies at the ready, and book now to pick a pumpkin at Lancashire’s Friendliest Farm. Here you can meet all the friendly animals, take a walk to the Pumpkin Patch and pick your very own Pumpkin, then bring it back to our traditional  Orchard in one of our handy wheelbarrows, where you can decorate it if you wish, and this year  we are delighted to announce that we will also be serving hot food throughout the festival!

The Pumpkin Festival starts on Saturday 16th October, running each weekend and during half term right up until Sunday 31st October, with session times running from 10am -12pm, 12pm – 2pm & 2pm – 4pm each day.

Please note everyone needs a ticket. Tickets are priced at just £7 per person for both adults and children (walking age upwards). Tickets include entry to the farm on your selected session time and a pumpkin (adults can swap their pumpkin for a hot brew if they prefer).  

Make sure you bring a box to transport your beautifully decorated pumpkin home with you. We can’t wait to see what your pumpkin will look like. 

We strongly encourage you to book online soon to avoid disappointment. 

Pumpkin fest is the best, book here.

Ridgeway Farm is a family run dairy farm, located on Peel Road, in-between Junction 4 of the Blackpool M55 motorway and Lytham.  We are the seventh generation to farm at Ridgeway and as such the farm is steeped in historical flora and fauna. With so much heritage intertwined from the original brick buildings to dairy genetics dating back over 50 years and of course not forgetting the farms very own priority habitat, in the form of a traditional orchard. We are open to the public Thursday – Sunday 10am – 4pm.
