Halloween is only a few weeks away now, and many of us will be looking for decorations and costumes in preparation for the season.

Pumpkins and pumpkin carving are also staples of this time of year, which requires you to go out and find your own.

Whilst finding one from a supermarket is useful, many people like the experience of going out to a farm to pick their own out.

There are quite a few places in Sussex to go out and do this so here is a list of those farms.
