At Lifton Farm Shop we LOVE to celebrate the pumpkin! After months of carefully planting, growing (and some times singing to) these beautiful bundles of orange we celebrate the harvest with a week jam packed of pumpkin fun for everyone! For price information please click here.

The shop turns orange with piles of pumpkins everywhere! Hanging from the roof tops or dancing around your feet, there are picked pumpkins wherever you turn! The Farm Restaurant even hosts a pumpkin themed picnic menu and pumpkin specials are added to the menu.



Pumpkin FieldsPumpkin FieldsPumpkin FieldsPumpkin Fields

We open the pumpkin fields to the public so everyone can have a go at picking their own. Wellies are a must as pumpkins grow on the ground and it may get a little muddy with the autumn weather. Once you have picked your favourite pumpkin carry it to the payment station where you will be charged depending on it's size.

This is the hub for pumpkin fest fun! The amazing Magic Martin hosts his pumpkin magic show including balloon modelling, dancing and the fancy dress parade! The children are all encouraged to get involved and guranteed to be captivated by Magic Martin's enthusiasm and energy! We also have a cinema corner where 'Spookley the Square Pumpkin' will be found playing to keep kids entertained in inbetween activities. There will also be the Spookley BBQ so you can but homemade burgers, hotdogs, chips and drinks.



Pumpkin CarvingPumpkin CarvingPumpkin CarvingPumpkin Carving

Part of the Pumpkin House will be dedicated to pumpkin carving. With their own carving kit and access to endless craft supplies children can not only pick their pumpkin but carve and decorate it there and then. Allowing all the fun and chaos of cutting and emptying the pumpkin in a safe space (and keeping your kitchen clean)!



Trailer RidesTrailer RidesTrailer RidesTrailer Rides

This is a huge favourite of visitors to Pumpkin Fest! Jump on a trailer from the pick up point and be transported through the farm and fields with your very own story teller. There will be lots to see and you will have a fun sheet of familiar faces to tick off as you spot them along the way. You may even see an animal or two!



Brand new to Pumpkin Fest 2018 is Lifton's first ever maize maze! Children must be accompanied by an adult and wellies would be a good idea. Once you have brought your ticket you will have unlimited access all day... but will you find your way out?!!




And as if the above is not enough we have lots more fun and activities to take part in that will vary day to day.

  • My family and I visited last Sunday for the roast dinner and all I can say is wow.

    The portions were generous and there was plenty of meat, on both the small and large plates, and a good selection of veg. Everything was cooked perfectly and it was piping hot… There is also a great selection of desserts and the apple pie was delicious.
