Pumpkin Season at Castle Farm

The pumpkin patch on Castle Farm takes residence on a sunny side of the Darenth Valley, and every year in September and October, the large green leaves wilt back to expose the most beautiful array of pumpkin varieties. Hand cut and carefully loaded onto a trailer, we bring them over to The Hop Shop -allowing you to choose between the colourful varieties. Rolet / Gem Squash, Sweet Lightening, Onion Squash, Turks Turban, Harlequin, Crown Prince and new for this year – wonderful white Snowman pumpkins! Large decorating pumpkins will be ready in October and Butternut Squash are not far off either. Come down and get inspired to make healthy Autumnal soups, spicy pumpkin curries or roasted squash!
