We will update our website, newsletter and social channels when we know an exact date for PYO and in the shop.
We will have several pumpkin varieties for you to pick, from traditional orange Racers to tasty Crown Prince Squash and ornamental gourds for table and window displays. Pop your pumpkins in one of our handy wheelbarrows to transport them easily from field to farm shop, and don’t forget to pose for a few snaps on our hay bales and with our photo stand-in boards before you go.
There will be Halloween-themed tricks and treats aplenty in the shop and cafe, from spooky iced biscuits to warming Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
When to pick: Our pumpkin patch is open in October for customers to pick their own orange, white, green, multi-coloured and dinky pumpkins.
How to pick: We will snip all the pumpkins before your visit so they are ready to for you to pick off the ground. Fill your own wheelbarrow and then pay for your pumpkins in the Farm Shop when you’re finished.
Ready picked: If picking is not for you then we have a skilled team of professionals in the fields who pick our best every single day. You can find our ready-picked vegetables in the Farm Shop fridges. If you would like to order a large volume of fruit or vegetables for an event, we’ll be happy to help. Please contact us using our contact form or call the shop on 01865 358 309.
What we grow: This year we are growing Racer pumpkins: orange lanterns usually between 4-6kg, Harvest Moon pumpkins: also orange but a little smaller at 4kg, and the very large Renegade pumpkins which come in at a whopping 8kg. We are also planting Crown Prince squash: dark grey bluish in colour and super tasty. We are also growing a selection of colourful gourds for picking.
