Urm, ok, need I say anymore! This is literally what you call a budget family day out, bring your own packed lunch and ultimately you can spend what you want on the day. The pumpkins and Sunflowers vary in price. They are sadly out of sunflowers this season, however the "Pumpkins" are coming out from the 26th September and I cannot wait! Tullys has a pop up drive in cinema, which you can take advantage from the 26th September. Tickets need to be booked to avoid disappointment.


IMPORTANT FACTS:

Sunflowers are now finished at this farm. The farm will be back with pumpkin season on SATURDAY 26TH SEPTEMBER.
