L's first visit to the pumpkin patch

I was planning this for few weeks as thought it could be a great opportunity to introduce L to the world of pumpkins.

We have called few local farms to see if they have planned anything but on the day when we wanted to go (Sunday) some of them were either closed or didn't have any activities. 
We have opted to go to the farm which was just 20 minutes away, the paid £6 per child and £3 per adult. 
They had different activities throughout the day: ferret encounters, pumpkin picking and carving, tractor trailer rides and much more. As L is just little we picked what we thought she would like to do- visiting farm animals, pumpkin picking aka touching, playing in the big sandpit and running around.
Pumpkin picking was a little bit different to what we expected, the "pumpkin patch" was an allocated area with pumpkins scattered everywhere for little ones to pick. I must say it would be more adventurous for me if it was a real pumpkin picking, but nonetheless we had lots of fun!

Have you ever been to pumpkin patch?
