Pick your own pumpkins at Elms Farm Costock
We have had so much fun at the farm in October during the spooky season. Oscar has done a fantastic job growing up sunflowers over the summer, and an even better job growing up 12'000 pumpkins in our patch in front of the shop.
Oscar's pumpkin Patch has been overwhelmingly successful and we have loved seeing your carving creations and recipe photos. It was fantastic to see the surrounding villages decorated with our son's pumpkins! This Halloween season felt really special and we want to say a big thank you to everyone for choosing to stay local when shopping for their pumpkins with us.
School day out in East Leake this October
Lantern Lane school has been visiting us twice and we have had so muc joy seeing the excitement of the children as they were looking down our field to find some hidden spooky painted rocks. We loved watching them trying to find the biggest and smallest pumpkins, it was so much fun! Later on we were visited by another classroom and we have absolutely loved seeing their pumpkins creations as well as hearing how delicious their pumpkin pies have been!
The winning team for the first challenge won a bag of treats for each player, and the second team got to choose some great pumpkins to bring back to their classroom.
Oscar and Gaelle (our admin assistant) also visited East Leake Playgroup to distribute some pumpkins with the big red tractor! All the little ones took turn to climb up the tractor and hold the pumpkins.
