It’s that time of year again when many of us are thinking about taking the kids pumpkin picking. It’s certainly one of our favourite autumn traditions! If you live in Sheffield, like us, you might be wondering where you can visit a pumpkin patch, so I’ve put together a list of 5 that are all within about 45 minutes of Sheffield.

Please check with each location whether booking is required and their opening times before setting off. Enjoy picking your pumpkins!
