Sat & Sun 27th/28th Oct 10am – 4pm
We grow BIG pumpkins for shop and garden centre display centrepieces, festivals, photoshoots but, most of all, for serious pumpkin carvers. We also grow a range of specialist pumpkins and squashes with a thick wall of flesh favoured by 3D pumpkin carvers and Chefs alike. We don’t have a shop, we don’t sell wholesale, you are buying directly off the grower.
Pumpkin Selection & Collection
Subject to stock availability, our 2018 pumpkin picking days will be held on 14th, 20th, 21st, 27th and 28th October 10am – 4pm at 37 Becconsall Lane, Hesketh Bank PR4 6RR
We strive to grow a wide selection of giant pumpkins in a range of sizes for you to choose from. Stock availability is listed on our ‘Pumpkins For Sale’ page as the pumpkins become available for sale (usually around the middle of October). You are very welcome to make an appointment to view all unsold stock and pick a pumpkin best suited to your display or carving design. All our pumpkins are sold on a strictly first come, first served basis. Please note that we do not deliver pumpkins nor do we pack them for couriers, they must be collected in person from PR4 6RR (West Lancashire).
Our ‘Carving Pumpkins’ are a selected variety grown specifically for 3D Pumpkin Carving. Not only are they big and tall with a good orange colour but, essential for 3D carving, they have a deep wall of dense flesh. They can weigh up to 100lb but, unlike most of the giant pumpkins, they will fit into a car and go through a standard doorway.
Specialist Squash, Gourds and Pumpkins
For the serious carvers out there, we will also have a very limited supply of the weird and wonderful pumpkins favoured by professional pumpkin carvers; big Hubbards, nobbly Knuckleheads, the ‘Disney’ Rouge vif d’Etampes and ugly salmon pink Galeux d’Eysines.
We also grow a range of the very best ‘eating’ pumpkin varieties for centrepiece dishes, pies or roasting including Galeux d’Eysines, Marina di Chioggia and Muscade De Provence. These more unusual pumpkins are also sold for use in harvest festivals, shop window displays and Thanksgiving. The mini Munchkin pumpkins are big favourites as restaurant table decorations and perfect for the smaller kids to paint (rather than carve) for Halloween.
Prices: Please see Pumpkins for sale for stock and prices
PLEASE NOTE: We do not deliver pumpkins.
Pumpkins must be collected from Hesketh Bank, Lancashire PR4 6RR. Pumpkins are fragile and, once they have been loaded onto your vehicle, the pumpkin becomes the buyer’s responsibility to pack and secure the pumpkin for transit. We do not accept returns or provide refunds for cracked, collapsed or damaged pumpkins. Every pumpkin is sold ‘as seen’.
