FAQ's

For information on our Pumpkin crop including tips on how to care for your Pumpkin, please visit our Pumpkin Crop Page

Can I pick my own Pumpkin from the field?

Only during our Pumpkin Picking Weekends. Unlike other farms we do not usually open our growing fields for pumpkin picking. We harvest and clean our pumpkins ourselves displaying them for you to select in our 'Pumpkin Patch. This is due to the very real risk of groundfrosts causing damage to pumpkins left out in the fields in late October.

Do you take Card Payments?

We have a limited ability to take card payments, please remember our event takes place outdoors on a working farm. Card payments are accepted in the Pumpkin Sales tent, Ice Cream Parlour and Tea Shack

Please bring cash as there is not an ATM on the farm.

Is there an entry charge to the Pumpkin Patch event?

Yes there is an entry charge to enter the farm during our Pumpkin Festival. This charge is payable on the day, Pumpkin Patch entry tickets cannot be booked in advance.

Entry to the Pumpkin Patch event is included in the ticket price for those visiting our woodland theatrical show.

For those not wishing to pay for entry to The Pumpkin Patch, there is a wide selection of Pumpkins available for sale in our Farm Shop which is free to enter. Alternatively, you may wish to visit the farm earlier in October when it is very quiet.

How can I book tickets to the Woodland Show?

You can book tickets to our Woodland Theatre show by clicking here (theatre tickets include the entry to The Pumpkin Patch).

Tickets to enter The Pumpkin Patch cannot be booked in advance, simply turn up on the day.

Is there parking available?

Can I bring a picnic?

No, Food and drink may not be bought in to the Pumpkin Patch or the farm. We have tried our best to accommodate picnickers in the past, but sadly have been overwhelmed with littering in recent years. The Pumpkin Patch is a catered event. Food and drink are available to purchase at Crockford's Corner.

Can I bring my dog?

No, sadly dogs are not allowed during our Pumpkin Patch Event. The Farm is simply too busy with hundreds of very excited children running around. We are very happy to welcome dogs on leads to the farm for the rest of the year and apologise for any inconvenience.

Can I carve my Pumpkin?

Yes, during Half Term there is a dedicated carving area where you can carve your own Pumpkin. (Sorry only Pumpkins purchased from us, you can't bring your own). For Health & Safety reasons we cannot provide knives for you to carve with. Pumpkin carving kits are available to purchase.
