About The Event

We are opening up our Pumpkin patch again this year. However, due to Covid-19 procedure, things need to be done slightly differently.

The patch will be open for three consecutive days. So make sure you choose the right date!

We are going to have allocated time slots. This will give you enough time to choose your pumpkin and go on a short walk around our farm trail….perhaps say hello to the pigs!

We’ll also be offering up food but this will also need to be booked in advance.

How it works:

Choose a time slot and purchase how many tickets you need. Please note the child's price includes 1 x free pumpkin . (Please bring change if you want more than 1 pumpkin)

Children £3.50 (includes 1 x free pumpkin)

Adults £2.00

Pumpkin picking slots

  • 10am - 11.30am
  • 11am - 12.30pm
  • 12.15pm - 13.45pm
  • 13.00pm - 14.30pm
  • 14.00pm - 15.30pm

If you would like to pre-book lunch, it would be best to choose a pumpkin picking time slot that finishes just before lunch serving starts eg: 10am-11.30am pumpkin slot and then book lunch starting 11.30am.

Lunch slots

  • 11.30am - 12.30pm
  • 12.45pm - 13.45pm
  • 14.00pm - 15.00pm

More info and what to bring:

Bring a large bag for your pumpkin, perhaps one you are happy to leave outside (keep in mind it might be raining) and we can add a name tag to it so you can collect when you drive out.

The farm ground is uneven so please wear sensible shoes/boots and leave prams at home.

Wear warm clothes/wet weather gear. If you are eating please wrap up warm as the barn is well ventilated.

Please follow the farm map and don’t stray from the marked ‘pumpkin path’. We are a working farm. Please keep a 2m distance from people outside of your bubble.

Once you have collected your pumpkin and if you decide to do the walk please exit through the main farm gates.

You must pre-book lunch. We cannot have walk-ins. This is for the safety of our customers and staff.

Please arrive on time for your booked lunch slot. We will take you to your table. We will serve directly to your tables.

Driving/parking:

Follow signs to the car park, please don’t just park along the farm lane, this causes chaos. We have a big field for parking so please use it. Park sensibly and be careful of other road users. We have staggered arrivals times in hope that traffic in the lane is minimal when walking back up to the farm.

Once parked head back up to the gate that had a sign for ‘Pumpkin picking’. Here you will be given a map for the walk. If you haven’t booked a lunch slot please leave the farm through the marked exit on the map.

We really want to welcome people on the farm but we do need everyone's support and to keep within the guidelines.
