What changes have you made due to COVID-19?

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

At the entry tent  you will find our hand sanitising stations, be checked in and given a sanitised wheelbarrow. Currently you can be in groups of up to 6 people. If any queues happen to build up, then please stay 2m apart to maintain social distancing. We will be monitoring government guidelines daily and will adapt accordingly.

Please return your wheelbarrow to the sanitising area near the entrance tent, so that it can be cleaned for the next visitors.

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.

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