The Pop-Up Farm: Pick sunflowers and learn about farming whilst having fun

The Pop-Up Farm is aiming to educate people about farming through its seasonal sunflower, sweetcorn and pumpkin festivals.

Located close to Harpenden in Hertfordshire, the year-round farm only opens to the public for certain seasons, helping people to understand more about the growing and harvesting of crops.

If you want to pick your own sunflowers this year, head to The Pop-Up Farm where you can see sunflowers in their natural setting.

The Pop-Up Farm’s sweetcorn season runs from August-September, and visitors can pick their own pumpkin during October.

The Pop-Up Farm was founded by local farmer Ian Pigott and his wife Gillian in 2017. Ian Pigott, who runs an education charity to get young people out on to farm, says The Pop-Up Farm aims to encourage people to have a great day out and learn about farming whilst having fun.
