Please find below some of our most frequently asked questions and answers. If there is anything we’ve missed please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Are tickets refundable?

Unfortunately, we cannot issue any refunds for cancellations unless Pumpkin Moon has to close for unforeseen circumstances on any given day.

Do you have First Aiders on site?

Yes, we have qualified first aiders at all of our farms. Please let a member of staff know if you need their help.

How do I carry my pumpkins?

We have plenty of colourful wheelbarrows for you to use, though do be careful with your children, so they don’t tip over. You might want to bring some bags if you don’t want to get your car muddy.

How long do pumpkins last for?

You can store pumpkin and squash for months before eating them if they are dry, cool, frost free and undamaged. However once carved, to keep your pumpkin looking good for longer, bring it inside or put undercover if it is raining and rub petroleum jelly or vaseline on the cut edges.

What changes have you made since last year?

We have now introduced ticketing along with arrival time slots to enable us to manage visitor numbers more efficiently and ensure you have a more relaxed visit.

What facilities do you have?

Toilets and baby changing facilities are available at all of our farms along with contactless card machines and car parking. We also have a café stall at each farm along with an ice cream van if the weather is suitable!

What happens to the leftover pumpkins?

The Gleaning Network and various animal sanctuaries come to collect any that are going to waste.

Where is Pumpkin Moon?

We now have three Pumpkin Moon farms.

One on the Lower Rainham Road, Rainham, Gillingham ME8 7TL. The second on the Old Chatham Road, Sandling, Maidstone ME14 3BE and our third farm is Fox Hill, Bapchild ME9 9AB.

Saturday 9th – Sunday 10th October

Saturday 16th – Sunday 17th October

Friday 22nd – Sunday 31st October

Pumpkin Moon is now ticketed so you will receive an arrival time slot.

How much is it?

We have now introduced ticketing along with arrival time slots to enable us to manage visitor numbers more efficiently.

Pumpkin Moon is now ticketed and costs £1.50 – £2.00 for Adults/Children. Under 2’s are free.

THIS CONFIRMS YOUR TIME SLOT ONLY.

All pumpkin, squash & gourd are an additional cost to be paid for in the field.

Once again under 2’s are free.

 

Is booking required?

Booking is now required, so we can safely manage the farms. Slots are half hourly from 10am with last entrance at 3:30pm. These timeslots are for arrival only i.e 11am means you can arrive between 11:00 & 11.30. Once you are at the farm you can stay as long as you like. Gates close at 5pm

 

Will you release more tickets?

Due to the unprecedented grey and damp summer, we are carefully monitoring our pumpkin fields. Pumpkins like sunshine and warmth to grow, and as this has been in short supply this year, we are limiting the tickets that we are currently putting on sale.

While we are cautiously optimistic that the crop will in fact be good, it feels sensible to be prudent for now, and issue more tickets at a later date, if the crop allows.

 

Are dogs permitted?

For hygiene reasons unfortunately only guide dogs are allowed.

Is it muddy?

If it has been raining you will need to turn up in wellies or old shoes. The ground is bumpy so please take care. Do bring something to keep your car clean when you put the pumpkins in and wipes for your hands if they get muddy.

Do check social media for an update before setting off.

How to get in touch?

You can get in touch via E-mail (info@pumpkinmoon.uk) or by telephone (07776 194901).

Is it wheelchair / pushchair accessible?

The ground is uneven, bumpy and could be muddy as this is a field. Contact us if you have any queries and we will try and help.

What do I need to bring?

Your ticket confirmation on your phone or a printed copy. Wear wellies or shoes suitable for a field. We have cut all the pumpkin so you don’t need to bring secateurs.

What changes have you made due to COVID-19?

We have now introduced arrival time slots to enable us to manage numbers more efficiently and keep the farms safe for you and our staff.
