Fancy joining the team?
We're currently recruiting for our Pumpkin event.
If you like working in a team, being outdoors and meeting new people, we’d like to talk with you.
Additional skills that may be helpful include creative/artistic flair, bar/restaurant experience and operating POS systems.
Like working out? We also have a couple of vacancies for pumpkin pickers to help out on the farm with our pumpkin harvest. Get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.
Enjoy an authentic experience delivered by farmers
A fun, wholesome and autumnal family experience for all ages.
Our aim is for each visitor to enjoy the great outdoors and experience the wonder of picking your own to enjoy and share with loved ones.
When the UK meets North America
We’re Ian and Gillian Pigott and it’s our pleasure to welcome you to The Pop Up Farm. A spin-off from our traditional family farming business, we’ve created a place to share our enthusiasm for farming, education and biodiversity with as many people as possible.
On our home farm ‘Thrales End‘, located on the outskirts of Harpenden, we grow wheat, oats and beans and also let offices, meeting rooms and storage space.
Ian is a sixth generation Hertfordshire farmer, while film and telly publicist Gilly is a born-and-raised city girl from Toronto, Canada. The Pop Up Farm marries progressive British farming with an authentic North American obsession with pumpkins, sunflowers and corn.
Together we’ve been bringing the best of both to London’s Local Farm since 2017.
Explore Our Farm
Why not create a new family tradition or relive childhood memories by coming along to one of our Pop Up Farm events? Get involved, whether it be picking pumpkins, sunflowers, corn or whatever our next idea may be.
We’re always exploring new ways to offer even more countryside fun, so keep an eye out for upcoming announcements.

There will be plenty of signs so it’s hard to miss us.
We look forward to welcoming you soon to The Pop Up Farm.
