Only 2 days to go!

Only 2 days to go until we open the gates for a full week of Halloween fun! We are all busy carving pumpkins and decorating the farm. Tickets are nearly booked out so book now!

Pumpkin Harvesting well underway in Fingal

It’s that time of year again when families nationwide are planning to decorate their homes with a pumpkin.

But for farmer Denise Buckley in Lispopple Swords, the yard is full of over 2000 newly harvested pumpkins ready to be delivered to Wooly Ward’s Farm for pumpkin carving over Halloween.

Denise is one of only two growers in North County Dublin who plant acres of pumpkins each year. This year the harvest is plentiful with the pumpkins having a great size. Denise puts it down to the mild weather conditions we have had over the growing season.

Just down the road from Denise, Mary Ward & her family (who happens to be a cousin of Denise’s husband) runs Wooly Ward’s Farm.

Wooly Ward’s Farm opened up in 2011 & offers visitors young & old guided activity tours of the farm throughout the year. Thousands of visitors have come in through the gates this year for school tours & days out & they are now expecting in the region of 5000 visitors over the week of Halloween.

Mary (known as Scary Mary at the farm) is looking forward to a fun packed Halloween Experience this year. “Apart from pumpkin carving, we have Owls from Newgrange Falconry, Reptiles, The House of Horrors, The Fuineamh Drum that was at Electric Picnic, our pantomime show – The Terrible Toothache staring Dracula & the three Witches – Mena, Mina & Mo and of course chocolate apple decorating as well”

Denise also supplies the 2000 apples needed for the chocolate apples & Scary Mary is delighted that she can guarantee her visitors home grown local produce from her cousins farm!
