FAQ's

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

When should I visit?

As early as possible! Typically most people like to visit the Farm in late October to enjoy the half term Pumpkin Festival. However, for those only wishing to purchase Pumpkins, we recommend visiting earlier in October when the farm is quieter and there is a wider selection.

Will my Pumpkin last if I buy it early?

Yes! Pumpkins last a very long time. Traditionally Pumpkins and Squashes were stored for many months over winter as a valuable food supply. Your pumpkin will easily last until you are ready to carve it if you leave it untouched in a cool dark place.

Do I need to book just for Pumpkin Picking?

Yes, booking is essential.

Do I need to book to visit the Pumpkin Festival ?

Yes, booking is essential. There will be no tickets available on the door and our Pumpkin Festival frequently sells out.

Can I just turn up and pay on the door?

No. Booking is essential to avoid disappointment. There may be a small amount of 'no shows' and cancellations available each day, but please do not count on this.

Is there parking available?

Yes, there is plenty of parking available on The Farm for customers visiting Farm customers must use The Farm field car park rather than the Garden Centre car park which is a separate business.

Can I bring a picnic?

No, Food and drink may not be bought to The Farm. We have tried our best to accommodate this in the past, but sadly have been overwhelmed with littering. Food and drink are available to purchase in Crockford's Corner.

Can I bring my dog?

No, during October the Farm is simply too busy with many very excited children. We're very happy to welcome dogs on leads to the farm for the other 11 months 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.
