Where to PYO Pumpkins in Buckinghamshire

PYO Pumpkin fields have become really popular, with more popping up every year. Have a look through this guide to find one to visit with your little ones this year. My tip for you is to go earlier rather than later. When you go early you’ll have a huge choice of pumpkins and get some great photos. If you leave it to go closer to Halloween then you’ll likely be faced with fairly sparse looking fields and barns. Pumpkins last for ages if stored properly and will easily last for at least a month.
