Arnprior Farm hosts Scotland’s original Pumpkin festival, with over 20,000 pumpkins to choose from over 3 weeks in October. Our patch is a great day out for all the family, including your furry friends.
As well as pumpkins, we have a quad pod ride, pumpkin cannon, bale mountain, an indoor hay barn, face painting, bouncy castle, lots of photo opportunities and much much more.
We have a delicious selection of food and drink each day including Loops and Scoops infamous churros, Skinners of Kippen burgers and pumpkin soup, pizzas, hot chocolates, Lous home baking and Gin fizz.
We also have our popular pop up shop in the polytunnel where you will be sure to find some autumnal goodies to take home.
Arnprior Farm is very easy to find. The farm is located in the village of Arnprior itself. Arnprior is located on the A811, 11 miles west of Stirling. The pumpkin event is clearly signposted as you approach the village from both directions.
If you are arriving by bus, the bus stop is in the village too, with buses coming form Stirling and Glasgow/Balfron. Look at the First Bus timetable for more info! Please note that no buses run on Sundays to Arnprior.

In areas. The pumpkin patch itself is in a real field, although we have gravel paths . You can access our catering area via a path. With babies, if you can use a baby carrier I would recommend it. If you are looking for a disabled parking space, please email ahead of time, and we can provide this for you
Pumpkins ripen at different times, as some will still be green, and some with have ripened quicker, and are orange

Yes, we grow thousands, and there are always pumpkins left for the sheep to eat at the end! Luckily, we have a 3rd patch that we use to replenish the main patch
Pumpkins are a fresh product. If stored properly they can last for well over a month. If you pick your pumpkin from the field then take it into a hot house, it may turn bad. Keep it outside until you are ready to carve it
