10 Tonnes of Pumpkins and Squashes

We will harvest around 10 tonnes of squashes and pumpkins this year! We are growing 15 varieties of Pumpkin and 10 different types of squash, including one called the Pink Banana!

We grow one and half acres of pumpkins and squashes.  We want to give you a huge variety of sizes that are suitable for both pumpkin carving at Halloween and lots of really good culinary dishes.

There are cricket ball sized gem squashes which are brilliant hollowed out and stuffed for a starter, or can even be used as a bespoke soup bowl for a dinner party!  The giant pink banana can be up to one metre long and is sweet enough to go in a pie served with custard, or simply baked like a sweet potato! Our farm shop serves the huge squashes by the slice!

One recipe idea is to steam a mix of one third squash, one third parsnip, one third sweet potato and then mash with butter and pepper to serve.

Enjoy!

Our customers told us...

“We definitely recommend Sharnfold for Christmas Trees.  They grow their own, there is lots of choice and you always get a really nice shaped tree for a decent price.”
