Do you have hidden talents when it comes to a spot of pumpkin carving? We would live to see them! In fact we think loads of people would love to see them so we are putting on an extra special pumpkin showcase!
Carve your own pumpkin, or even better why not pop along to the Washingpool Farm carving event on Tuesday 29th and leave the mess with them. They will even provide the tools and tealights!
Some Pumpkin Carving Tips
- Get creative, in choosing your subject. A family portrait maybe or your favourite TV character.
- Try cutting off the bottom of the pumpkin instead of the top.
- Use an ice cream scoop to remove the insides of the pumpkin (make sure you save them to make some delicious pumpkin pie)
- But be careful with knives…get an adult to help you.
Bring your pumpkin in to our customer service desk before 2pm on the 30th of October and we will judge them for a chance to win some fabulous prizes including tickets to Longleat, Axminster Wildlife Park and Abbotsbury Children’s Farm.
We will put your pumpkins around our pond for everyone to see and our RHS judge Cyril will judge the best according to the categories#
- Under 5
- 5-10 years

Be sure to visit on Halloween and the following weekend to see all the the pumpkins and the winners!
