If you’re looking for Peak District pumpkin picking options, the best (and only) place is Village Pumpkins in Barlow, which is strictly just a mile from the National Park boundary, between Chesterfield and Sheffield. Plus Village Pumpkins is FREE to enter, you just pay for your pumpkins at the end. It’s a beautiful setting too, especially with poppy flowers popping up amongst the pumpkins.
Make sure you’re all wearing wellies as it gets very muddy, especially if it’s raining. We dress our boys in waterproof jackets and trousers. Gloves and hats are a good idea for colder days.
On arrival, you need to check in for Track and Trace at the main hut. You can either scan the QR code on your phone using the Track and Trace app, or if you haven’t yet downloaded it, provide your details to a staff member.
The team at Village Pumpkins have done a fantastic job at making your pumpkin picking experience COVID safe, and we felt safe at all times during our visit.
The unbelievable success of Pumpkin Picking has made us at Village Logs very happy, but for the safety of everyone, we decided to limit the number of vehicles to 80, allowing a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone.
Each appointment will require a deposit of £5 and Village Logs will offer you a £5 coupon to spend during the event.
