and live on Freeview channel 276
It’s that time of year again and spooky season is almost upon us - will you be celebrating Halloween this year? If so, pumpkin picking is an absolute must. One of the biggest staples of the Halloween season is pumpkins - whether it be pumpkin picking or creating jack o’ lanterns, you can’t go far in October without seeing them!
If pumpkin picking is something you’d like to do this October, we’ve put together a list of pumpkin patches in South Yorkshire that are open to the public. Be aware that not all of these pumpkin patches are currently open - some of them will become available as Halloween draws closer.
As there aren’t many pumpkin patches in Sheffield alone, we’re going to be taking a look at places where you can go pumpkin picking across all of South Yorkshire. There aren’t any in Rotherham - however, Barnsley and Doncaster more than make up for Rotherham’s lack of pumpkin fields, with a modest contribution from the steel city, too. Will you be going out pumpkin picking for Halloween 2022?
