Pumpkin Picking

Established in 2018, The Pumpkin Festival at Kilduff is a wholesome family experience set in the heart of East Lothian. An opportunity for children, young and old, to pick their own pumpkins right from the field where they grow and enjoy an autumn celebration. The festival was born from a desire to engage children with rural life and teach them where food comes from and how it is grown. Now in its 5th year, the festival has become an autumn tradition for many, with families returning year after year to create treasured family memories.

So much love and passion has gone in to this pumpkin patch experience, they deserve to sell every last pumpkin that they have. My kids have already asked if we can go again next year!

Culinary pumpkins

We are passionate about using local produce and reducing food waste and want to encourage people that a pumpkin is not just for Halloween. In that vein we are committed to growing specific varieties for both carving and to cook with and sharing our knowledge on how to cook with Autumn’s star ingredient and share some delicious recipes! The Patch will re-open for pumpkin picking in October 2023 but in the meantime keep an eye out here and on social media for updates on how the pumpkins are getting on!
