Pumpkin Farm – a visit

Anya Jensen17th October 2016

Since I moved back to Denmark around 10 years ago the tradition of Halloween has gone from an unknown tradition to one of the most loved holidays every year. I never used to get all dressed up, or go ‘trick or treating’ as a child myself, but it has become increasingly popular and the Danish children love it.

One thing I always wanted to experience is a visit to ‘a pumpkin patch’. I have seen many images of pumpkin fields on the Internet, and I wanted to see one for myself and share the experience with the girls. So I did a bit of research and found a local farm – KILDEBRØNDE FRUGTPLANTAGE where they too had embraced the newly adopted tradition of Halloween and allowed people to come and pick their own pumpkins.

I always like taking the children to organic farms, not only for the organic fresh produce but also for educational purposes, as I think it is good for kids to learn where the food they eat come from. Yes, we can buy it in the supermarket, but where does it grow?

We went to the pumpkin farm, and it didn’t disappoint. There were rows and rows of big orange pumpkins, small orange pumpkins, green pumpkins, oval pumpkins – you name it, we saw them. The girls were surprised to discover that the stalks were very prickly and that the pumpkins were all covered in mud on the side that was on the ground, and some even had worms crawling on them. Luckily the pumpkin we picked was big and orange and round.  The pumpkin is now waiting for a funny/scary face for Halloween.

That day was one of the most hyggelige days we have had this autumn.
