Exploring Cornwall: Trevaskis Farm

I’ve blogged and Instagrammed my Trevaskis Farm visits before but it’s mainly been food porn and the odd animal. Today the farm is getting its own blog post because I recently had one of my best days with Jenson ever – and I know we’ll have plenty more awesome family days out there.

The best thing about Trevaskis Farm is that you can just rock up, walk around and not spend a single penny – although it’s rude not to stop in the cafe and treat yourself to an epic piece of cake while you’re there. We went a couple of weekends ago to check off one of the items on my autumn bucket list – visit a pumpkin patch. And Jenson bleddy loved it!

When you’re there you have to have a good look around everything. We popped into the Hungry Caterpillar Trail, which is a great way to show younger children how different types of fruit and veg are grown, and walked through the orchards. There were so many apples, it was ridiculous!

I’ve always gotta have a look at the farm animals – the ickle piggies are my faves. They always make me question my love of bacon – for a second. It just tastes so damn good #sorrynotsorry.

Jenson loved seeing all the animals and being able to get so close. He has no fear at all and reached out to the donkey and pony straight away. It was so cute!

Of course, the main reason to go was to pick Jenson’s first pumpkin. The pumpkin patch was huge and I was so chuffed that no-one else was around to butt into our photos. We spent quite a while there getting Jenson to pose and letting him crawl around the field – luckily we had a spare pair of trousers in his bag.

A trip to Trevaskis Farm isn’t complete without a dessert. I didn’t have any breakfast on purpose but by the time we sat down I needed to start with a panini. The dessert portions are so huge that I shared some chocolate brownie with mum – yep, that is half a portion featured below! I couldn’t even polish that off and had to take the last few bites home to finish over X Factor. Waste not want not!

I don’t really get a chance to out for adventures with my mum these days as we’re both working and juggling kids and grandkids so it was great to be able to go out and have some fun with the little man. Now that Jenson is a bit older and able to walk around we’re able to do so much more together. I’m looking forward to his first Halloween party this weekend. He’s got the cutest pumpkin costume!

If you’ve never been to Trevaskis Farm before, where have you been? It’s just off Connor Downs, in between Hayle and Camborne. The pumpkin patch is open during regular farm hours – just pay for your pick at the shop on the way out. They’re super cheap too!
