There was a lot of mud (in Scotland, in a field, in october...
The only thing I was disappoint
Yes, parking was an absolute nightmare but from what I saw everyone was doing their best and still had smiles on - can't blame the farm team or the village for so many carloads of visitors descending
We got there early, no bother parking or crossing the 30 mph road to get to the pumpkin patch. We picked a cracking pumpkin (now I just need to work out how to carve it?!) My 15 month old daughter was shattered by the time we left and had a great sleep after a lovely morning in the fresh air. Will definitely
Free car park ( get early as it was full by 11 and then pretty much one in one out) , then tackle the mud , amaz...ing local food ,and plenty activities
We’re weeks off our busy busy spell... (which doesn’t really finish till November!) The sheep are starting to come indoors for our indoor lambing, which starts in a few weeks. The fields will be getting ploughed soon & oats sowed !... And finally spot the pumpkin patch below... (which we can’t wait to plough&re plant!!!... )and before we know it, it’ll be pumpkins again!!! Phew!
Here we go again.
