Contact us if you have any queries and we will try and help.

What do I need to bring?

The pumpkins have been cut for you so do not bring knives or secateurs.

The stalks are prickly so either pick the pumpkins up by the base or bring gloves.

How do I carry my pumpkins?

We have plenty of 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 they 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 if it is raining and rub petroleum jelly or vaseline on the cut edges.

What happens to the leftover pumpkins?

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

Do you support any charities?

Yes, Heart of Kent Hospice, The British Heart Foundation and Demelza Hospice Care for Children have all benefited from our support, with over £3,500 donated in 2017.
