Algy’s Farm Shop
Algy’s is definitely one of my favourite patches, possibly because of the fond memories I have there. It’s a little outside of Norwich in Bintree – near to Foxley Woods, which is another favourite spot of mine. It is open Monday – Saturday 9-5, or Sunday 10-4 and you can pay by cash or card which is great.
Algy’s is easy to find and the entrance is well sign posted which I always appreciate. As you drive down the lane towards the farm shop you will see the pumpkin patch on your right. There is a medium sized car park outside the shop, then you can grab a wheelbarrow and head back up the lane to choose your pumpkins!
As always it will be muddy, so make sure you wear appropriate footwear – something I never seem to be able to remember to do! The pumpkin patch is fairly large and the pumpkins are often still attached so it is a real PYO experience. When we visited there was a really good mix of sizes, and they had both orange and white varieties to choose from. Pumpkins are priced by size, ranging from £1 – £9.50, and once you head back to the shop you’ll find a pricing board outside to help you figure out how much you’ve spent.
There’s also a wellie washing station which will most likely be very welcome before you get back into the car!
The farm shop itself is really lovely and stocks a nice range of local produce and different foods. The main star of Algy’s Farm Shop is of course the famous popcorn, and I highly recommend grabbing a bucket of sweet and salty. The perfect accompaniment to an autumn evening of film watching with family on the sofa.
Algy’s offers a really lovely and simple pumpkin patch experience, and isn’t quite as commercialised (and expensive) as somewhere like Undley so it’s a great choice for a morning or late afternoon trip. We visited at about 3 pm and still had time to explore Foxley a little bit before dark.
Although we grabbed quite a few pumpkins from Algy’s on this trip we will probably head back soon, mainly because we have run out of popcorn!
If you’re looking for something pumpkin/popcorn related to do this half term then head to Algy’s on Monday 23rd for their Halloween Special Popcorn Party!
