An Instagrammable, picture perfect Autumnal adventure is opening tomorrow at Mrs Dowsons Farm Park! Just in time for the cosier season, the Pumpkin Festival features new characters, new autumnal activities, and tasty food and drink for an afternoon of family fun. 

Across the site, guests will be able to pick their own personal pumpkin to take home, with the option to purchase more if needed. 

As Mrs Dowsons is passionate about giving its guests the opportunity to see, touch and even handle its furry friends on the farm, animals will also welcome guests around the photogenic experience. 

With Autumn taking centre stage at the Farm Park, guests can enjoy hearty, savoury seasonally-influenced creations such as warming pumpkin soup, pumpkin pizza, pumpkin pie punch and pumpkin corn dogs.

Known for its homemade ice cream, the family-run dairy farm uses milk from its own cows to create delicious, refreshing desserts using no artificial ingredients or flavours. 

For those looking to sample the famous sweet treat, Mrs Dawsons ice cream parlour and cafe will provide tasty refreshments including; Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream, Cinnamon Ice Cream and Salted Caramel Apple Pie across the Pumpkin Festival.

Tickets are on sale now for the event, which opens its doors tomorrow (Saturday 8th October). From then, the Pumpkin Festival will open every Saturday and Sunday from 8th October – 30th October, and is open the full week of the 24th October.
