You can buy a pumpkin from a supermarket but where's the fun in that?

Instead you and your children can have fun picking pumpkins straight from the field in the following places.

And there is other fun to be had in the run up to Halloween, including maize mazes and rides.

Get your pumpkins:

Cannon Hall Farm

Your brilliant Halloween pumpkins

Where: Bark House Lane, Cawthorne, S75 4AT

When: Until October 31

What: Almost 10,000 pumpkins to pick and carve plus 'Witches Wood' trick or treat trail.

Cannon Hall Farm has transformed an old pony paddock into a ‘Witches Wood’ as part of its annual Pumpkin Festival event - a spookily good event for children.

The farm has created a series of ‘tricky’ clues for the children to follow and - if they are successful - the witch in the wood gives them a treat.

Farm director Robert Nicholson said: "It's been fantastic so far - everyone has really got into the spirit of the event and there's been some fantastic fancy dress.

"The witches show has proved really popular and it's just great to see the kids wheeling the wheelbarrows around the field to choose their pumpkins.

"The kids are always excited to see their pumpkin carved - and there’s some brilliant designs that we've seen."
