With the Summer and the heat wave now completely gone, Halloween is now just around the corner. We know you are all in a huge anticipation of celebrating Halloween on Gower and we are getting ready. As you must’ve already heard we started our Halloween Pick-your-own-pumpkin activities at the farm. We are opened daily for pumpkin hunting. Families visit with their children and dogs and have a fantastic time looking for their pumpkin, hidden somewhere among the Christmas trees. We’ve cracked on with the Pumpkin carving area, the sweets shop and the live performance zone too. We are hard at work, getting ready for Halloween week. It’s going to be so much fun, so many surprises, incredible time for all children and grown ups as well.
Halloween on Gower
Tickets sales have stepped up a gear since the start of October and we are already seeing a record number of tickets sold, so if you’ve not booked up for our Half Term Pumpkin Party yet, please, jump online and grab those fast disappearing tickets! Anyone can visit the farm, 7 days a week, 9:30-16:30, to wander the trees and choose from our harvested pumpkins. We have wheelbarrows for pumpkins and children transport!! Our pumpkins are only £3-£4, so, come take a look, no purchase necessary. While there visit our spooky sweetshop and cafe, and also the Christmas shop is open to start getting festive. Your children will love the “Live Shows Daily by Daley”, the Children Entertainer.
Remember, kids need activity tickets, while adults need site passes.
In other news, the Christmas Countdown counter on our website is showing that there are only 73 Days, 7 Hours, 22 Minutes and 15 Seconds until Christmas. I know what you are thinking: “How come it’s Christmas again?” Yep, it’s that time of the year and we can’t be happier. We are ready for the season, with thousands of the most beautiful real, fresh Christmas trees, ever. This would be possibly one of the most eagerly anticipated Christmases since we planted our first Christmas tree in 1997. the trees are now in their 8-10 year of growing care and they are looking great, our best crop ever. The Fraser and Nordman Firs look especially full and vibrant. They are all labelled and ready to be selected when you come to pick your own in the fields or in the new barns.
The reindeers are in tip top condition as it’s peak of the breeding season. Ralph is losing condition as solely focused on his ladies and not much else, caring for them 🤔 and keeping other suitоrs away. He doesn’t stop all day. This year we have opened early and many of our customers have been able to see and meet the reindeer already! I think the reindeer are happy as well as they love feeding on the moss you all give them.
That’s it from me folks. Cant wait to see you all at the farm. Let’s have some fun.
