Windsor Farm and Pumpkin Patch in Lamphey has announced that it will be opening its gates in October for the third year running.

As part of farm diversification, the farm grew pumpkins for the first time in 2019. Each year they have been getting bigger and better and the farm has been overwhelmed by their popularity.

This year has continued with them being bigger and better, as there are more than twelve varieties of pumpkins, from small to huge and white to bright orange.

Weather isn’t a problem for the Pumpkin Patch as all of the pumpkins are undercover. In response to its popularity, more improvements have been made whilst admission is still free.

This year will see more animals on show, a drinks, sweets and cake trailer, toilets, more parking and a new one way traffic system through the farm for cars.

Farmer Andrew Phillips said: "We have been delighted by how popular our new venture has been and have been keen to make year on year improvements to ensure everyone has a great time choosing from this years crop of outstanding pumpkins."

To continue to improve farm diversity and ensure a fantastic pumpkin crop, this year Windsor Farm has worked in collaboration with nearby Pembrokeshire Coast Honey to have beehives located on the farm.

Beekeeper Rob Talliss said: "It’s been fantastic working with Windsor Farm to establish bee hives on the farm and it does seem to have helped to grow an amazing crop and also produce outstanding honey!"

The Pumpkin Patch will be open most weekends in October and details can be found on Windsor Farm's Facebook page.

Whilst first year beekeepers, Pembrokeshire Coast Honey has sold out of all of its honey. The team will be at the patch with a range of candles made from their natural beeswax.
