Can I buy a Pumpkin at the Pumpkin Festival?

Yes, our Pumpkin Market is open every day during the Pumpkin Festival selling pre-harvested pumpkins. Please note you cannot pick directly from the fields during the Pumpkin Festival (please book Pumpkin PIcking for this).

Do I need to book to visit the Pumpkin Festival ?

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

Can I just turn up and pay on the door?

No. You will only be allowed entry with a valid booking. There may be a small amount of 'no shows' and cancellations available each day, but please don't 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've tried our best to accommodate this in the past, but sadly have been overwhelmed with litter. Food and drink are available to purchase in Crockford's Corner.

Can I bring my dog?

No,  dogs are not allowed into the Pumpkin Festival. It is a very busy space with many highly excited young children.

Can i bring a buggy?

Yes, whilst buggies are not permitted into our Picking Fields, you are very welcome to bring your buggy to the Pumpkin Festival

Can I carve my Pumpkin?

Yes, there is a dedicated carving area at the Pumpkin Festival 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.

What if it rains?

Inclement weather is part and parcel of life on the farm, particularly in the last week of October. We don't close when it rains and suggest customers consider this before booking tickets for an outdoor event.

 Tickets are non refundable whatever the weather. We're unable to re-book your tickets should it rain on the day of your visit.

In our experience there's no such thing as poor weather, simply poor preparation. Over the years, thousands of customers who've come prepared and suitably dressed enjoy our events, whatever the weather!

Do you offer carer passes?

As a small farming business, we simply do not have the resources to offer a concessionary rate in the same way large, dedicated tourist attractions can. Carer Passes are available in certain situations. Please contact us directly if you require further information before your visit or booking tickets

Met Office weather warnings

We will take a decision on whether it is safe to open based on actual conditions.

In the unlikely event we're forced to close the Pumpkin Festival due to extreme weather this will be publicised on Social Media and via email to ticket holders.

Customers should check with us directly before assuming we're closed. Tickets will only be re-booked or refunded in the unlikely event we close The Pumpkin Festival
