PYO Pumpkins 

We will be opening in October 2021, dates and times to be confirmed but we hope to follow our usual weekends and half term.  We have planted many different varieties, sizes and colours of pumpkins and squash.  There are lots of large orange pumpkins suitable for carving as well as small squash which are delicious to eat.  All our pumpkins are home grown where you find them as we never buy them in.   Although you may find some small squash picked up and put into boxes or wheelbarrows.  These are the most tasty varieties for eating, please ask if you need help choosing some to eat.

The Valley

This year we are in the valley with a number of bridges crossing the farm ditches.  Halloween corn, for decoration, provides a boundary to the field with Sunflowers providing food over winter for our wildlife.   As always we have grass pathways making our fields accessible to all including those with pushchairs and wheelchairs, weather permitting.  Pumpkin picking is a family event and we welcome you all, but please remember that dogs are not allowed as many people eat their squash and pumpkins.  The ground can be uneven and muddy so please take care, footwear suitable for a field is advised and pumpkin stalks can be prickly so gloves are advised.  Pumpkins and squash will be cut off their plants so no cutting tools are required.

The entrance to the farm is just off Stoke Road and will be signposted.  We operate a one way system and you exit the ample car park through the farm yard.  Please drive slowly and carefully on the grass, through the farmyard and past the houses until you reach the main road.  Wheelbarrows are available for you to borrow and we suggest you bring strong bags to put your pumpkins in once you are back at your car as they can be wet or muddy.
