How to pick: We will snip all the pumpkins before your visit so they are ready to for you to pick off the ground. Cutting the pumpkins by hand means that you get a pumpkin with a long handle and no machine damage or scarring. Fill your own wheelbarrow and then pay for your pumpkins at the payment huts or 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 which usually weigh 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.
How we grow: All of our pumpkins are grown in our Oxfordshire fields and not under poly tunnels, so they have been soaking up plenty of sun over the hot summer of 2022 and have fantastic colour as a result. These pumpkins are top grade, and far superior to the fruit (yes, fruit) you’ll find in the supermarket – great to carve and delicious to eat!
