On Sunday afternoon Sean and I had fun with Cuba and Coco-Ivy visiting The Pumpkin Patch MK in Milton Keynes. It is the first year the event is being held at the Mount Mill farm, Deanshanger in Buckinghamshire.
The pumpkin patch is the brainchild of the Gurney family, who have farmed in the Buckingham area for the previous four generations. Farmer Joseph Gurney and his wife Rosalyn found the inspiration in their own challenges in finding fun things to do with their own children Bruce aged 3 and Tilly aged 5.
So, they decided to ‘mix business with pleasure’ providing families an opportunity to a ‘unique attraction that balances the beauties of being in the open countryside on a working farm, the joy of being able to pick your own pumpkin direct from the field and the fantastic fun for both young and old’.
This free event is open throughout October and and there is a choice of attractions for the kids and adults to enjoy such as, face painting, locally produced food and refreshments, a professional outdoor photograph studio and a barrel ride.
The 100 Bale Straw Maze
The Bale Maze was deffinitely Cuba’s favourite part of the day.
There are so many pumpkins to choose from across a vast space in the field.
Such a stunning autumnal sight of all the beautiful pumpkins spread around the patch.
The pricing is according to the size and colour of your chosen pumpkin.
This huge Pumpkin sign is the perfect photo opportunity.
The atmosphere was amazing as all the families were enjoying time together in the beautiful and natural environment.
Cuba enjoyed the barrel ride.
The farms four legged resident accompanied the kids on the ride.
More fun photo opportunities.
Here’s my youtube video, take a peek and see some of what we got up to.

We thoroughly enjoyed our lovely afternoon, we were so lucky as the weather was perfect. It was a unique opportunity for the children to explore and run around freely on the field. Many thanks to the Gurney family for hosting this amazing event, hope to see you next October.
Has anyone else been to a pumpkin patch? I would love to hear from you.
Lot’s of love
