It’s a family tradition that is popular with all age groups, young and old alike. If you’re thinking about going pumpkin picking this year, then we’ve written a short blog post that looks at the main reasons why this is an activity you definitely should consider doing. Read on to learn more.

A Chance to Bond

One of the main reasons to go pumpkin picking this year is that it’s a family experience that gets everyone bonding together. Picking pumpkins on a patch involves the whole family participating, from the toddlers to the grandparents. It’s an inclusive activity for the whole family, bridging the gap between generations. And, the shared experience of finding the perfect pumpkin creates lasting memories and can become a family tradition for years to come.

A Healthy Outdoor Activity

Secondly, pumpkin picking provides a great opportunity to reconnect with nature and be outdoors. With the sprawling fields in Hertfordshire, each filled with pumpkins of all varieties, the activity is an escape from the stresses and demands of everyday life. It gives your family time to wander through the fields, connect with nature and enjoy being outdoors together. Pumpkin picking is a sensory experience that calms the mind and rejuvenates the soul. It’s also really physical, involving searching, bending, lifting, and carrying, so it’s a great way to exercise too.

Educational for Children

Visiting a pumpkin patch is an educational experience, especially for children. Children will be able to learn about various pumpkin varieties, growth cycles, and the importance of farming in our daily lives. Alongside this, by visiting a farm like Hatter’s Farm, you will be contributing to the local economy and promoting sustainable farming practices. By visiting, you’ll be teaching your children that it’s important to support local businesses.

There are Many Affordable, Fun Activities to Do

When you go pumpkin picking, you can do much more than just pick pumpkins. In fact, at Hatter’s Farm, we offer a number of extra activities such as a Maize Maze, food and drinks, a Hay Bale mountain and more. Each of these activities give your family a full day of entertainment and excitement without being costly. Coming to our farm is a memorable experience that’s affordable and caters to all interests and age groups.
