Jucker Farm...


We had a family day out today at Jucker Farm, which is the most amazing place to take your kids.  This time of year the place is entirely devoted to pumpkins, which will become apparent as I share some pics with you.

We took the Horgen- Meilen Car Ferry over and then made our winding way (ignoring the GPS to our own peril) through the most beautiful Swiss countryside, all the way to Seegraeben.

The view from the ferry across Lake Zurich to the alps...

And here are just a few pics from our day at the farm...

Yes, that's a dinosaur made of pumpkins.

And another... 

And another...

Climbing on the straw bale hut...

The streets were lined with pumpkins...

I just noticed the pumpkins on the roof...



And then there were the pumpkins for sale...  all things weird and wonderful.

oh, and apples too...







These were my favourites...

And if all this has given you a hankering for a little pumpkin soup, check out my thai curry pumpkin soup recipe from a couple of posts ago.
