Pumpkin FunFest at Mead Open Farm


Pumpkin FunFest at Mead Open Farm




We had a great start to the half term holiday with the kids at the pumpkin FunFest at Mead Open farm


We absolutely love Halloween celebrations and after so much fun last year at the Pumpkin Patch MK, we couldn’t wait to go Pumpkin picking again.

This year we have been super lucky having the opportunity to visit the Pumpkin FunFest at Mead Open Farm.

If you are looking for a unique way to celebrate Halloween the Pumpkin FunFest at Mead Open farm is a fantastic family day out.


So What’s Included at the Pumpkin FunFest at Mead Farm?


There is so much to do at this super fun Halloween event including:



The Pumpkin picking Patch and Carving Station



Coco was determined to find the biggest pumpkin



After choosing our pumpkins we had a short wait for the carving station.

All the tables were provided with sanitation for your hands and for the pumpkins which we gave a good clean with anti-bacterial spray and paper towels.



It was tricky work cutting through the pumpkins because the carving tools were pretty weak.

The kids had fun together and were happy enough to finish off their carvings at home.




The Tiny Terrors Tractor Ride



  The Spooky music and the spooky story played as we had fun on the ride



There are lots of little boos along the way




The Creepy Barn Walk-Through



We had some laugh out loud moments on the creepy barn walk



  It took Coco a while to adjust to the spooky environment.

 I think it was a bit of props and costume overload.


 In hind sight, we should have given her a bit of extra time to settle into the environment.




The Trick or Treat Halloween Show



The Trick or Treat Training stage show was in the barn theatre.


The show is full of energy and really funny




 The Fairy Tale Villains Trail



 The Fairy Tale Villain’s Trail was part of the live street theatre around the farm.

Each fairy tale character gave us a live mini show with hidden clues.


Work out the Fairy Tales name from the clues and win a prize!


The grumpy troll was super funny


The actors gave an amazing performance, all keeping in character throughout our visit. Mummy and daddy appreciated the silly hidden adult humour too, so funny!




The Huge Indoor Play


The indoor play area is available in one hour sessions


The indoor play area is huge with lot’s of space great for social distancing. It includes the Magic Veggie Wood, Shaggy’s Play world, Mini Moo’s, two drop slides and a large wave slide.

The floor felt as cold as ice on your feet actually feeling colder inside than outside on the Fram, so an extra layer os socks would be a good idea.




 Outdoor Adventure


Unfortunately, due to Covid restrictions not all the outdoor adventure activities are available.

Totally understandable and there are so many other play areas to choose from such as, the inflatable trampolines, go carting, two large sand play areas and an adventure playground.


Coco was super determined to master the go-carting




Animal Activities


 The kids had lot’s of petting opportunities including pony grooming.



The bunny hop station can get really crowded so social distancing was difficult.

 We personally didn’t feel comfortable to hang around.



You can purchase animal feed for £1 a bag or for £0.80 online when you book your tickets.


The goats are super friendly and gentle



We had a fantastic family fun day out at this extremely organised event which has all the essential Covid-19 measures in place for a safe and fun visit.


Take a peek here at the fun packed activities time table to plan your visit!


The entrance fees for this ticket only event cost us £15.45 per adult and £14.45 per child.

Have fun and stay safe,

    What gorgeous photos and I can see why you had a great day out. I took my daughter pumpkin picking for the first time this year, but it was literally just picking some pumpkins into our wheel barrow and then carting them off and paying for them 🙂 Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next time.
