We love to pick our own Pumpkin for Halloween, who doesn’t?! Last year we went to Kenyon Hall Farm in Warrington and we had a lovely family day out.
I have put together a list of places where you and your family can pick your own pumpkin in or around the Greater Manchester area. There’s even some Halloween and pumpkin themed activities to join in too! I have listed them in order of distance from Oldham as a starting point.
