How to start a pumpkin patch with a homemade planter

Share Article

Pumpkin season may now be over for another year – but there’s nothing stopping you from getting in on the action ready for next year!

James and Jen visit friends at Auntie Angie’s pumpkin patch in Doncaster UK to find out about their new farming venture.

Angela explains their vision, while Gary talks us through his homemade planter drill, the varieties and his hopes for the patch for the future!


James is a farmer originally from Yorkshire and Jen is a Lincolnshire girl that juggles a full-time job with life on the farm together. We live together in Lincolnshire, Great Britain on an all-arable farm growing combinable crops (wheat, oil seed rape, beans, oats and we’ve tried a bit of soya this year). James is farming full-time and mostly alone, while Jen helps where she can! We started making videos to talk/share the thing we love most – farming. The industry has a tough time in the UK and we face a lot of challenges people don’t even realise, but it’s a way of life that we enjoy!
