How much is admission to the Pumpkin Patch?

Please see our ‘Prices’ page for up to date prices on attractions and pumpkins.
Are dogs allowed at the Pumpkin Patch?
Yes, well behaved dogs are allowed, however they must be kept on leads at all times. Also dog owners must clear up if their dog fouls.
What facilities/toilets do you have on-site?
We have toilets and washing facilities on site. There will also be hand sanitisation stations on-site.
Is the ground suitable for pushchairs/wheelchairs?
The pumpkin patch is within a farm setting so ground conditions will depend heavily on the weather. If there has been abundant rainfall then conditions will be muddy and potentially slippery. If the weather is dry then ground conditions may still be bumpy. While those using wheelchairs and buggies are wholeheartedly welcomed at the patch, we would ask that users be aware that conditions on the day are wholly dependent upon the weather.
How much is under cover and how much is open air?
Most of the pumpkin patch is outside in the open air. We have two marquees, one is the craft marquee which houses the craft stalls, walking pet balloons and pumpkin carving, the other marquee has seating for refreshments. Particularly designed with the October weather in mind, (which can be a little unpredictable). This year we will also be offering weather protection for our giant inflatable bouncy pumpkin and witches hat to ensure rain does not stop play!
Are you open if it is raining?
YES! Just be sure to bring your wellies, raincoat and umbrellas! Also, keep in mind that the crafts marquee is under cover and there is a second seated marquee for eating in under cover. Also the inflatables will be covered.
Do you sell hot food there?
Yes, there are hot foods and drinks, BBQ, Hog Roast, Pizzeria and more!
What footwear is suitable?
Wellies really are the best option, particularly if the weather has been wet in previous weeks. Remember that the pumpkin patch is a farm setting.
Am I able to use my bank card to pay?
All major credit cards accepted apart from American Express. Cashback is also available.
What are the prices of the pumpkins?
Please see our ‘Prices’ page for up to date prices on pumpkins and gourds.
How much is the themed Maize Maze?
Please see our ‘Prices’ page for up to date prices on Maze entry. There is no charge for children aged 3 and under in the maize.
How long do the pumpkins last?
As long as they are not bruised in any way, pumpkins will keep for two months or more if they are stored in a cool dry place, for example a garage or outside shed. so if you’re planning to visit on 2nd October then they should still be good for 31st October…
Do you sell pumpkin carving kits and carving stencils?
Sold at PYO Pumpkin stations, we have a huge new selection this year of carving kits and pumpkin accessories!
How do we find you?
Our post code is IP28 8BX and directions to the pumpkin patch are on the website.
Is there public transport near you?
A brilliant resource to use is the ‘journey planner’ available on the Suffolk On Board website.
How do I know if there are still pumpkins available to buy?
We always have enough for the entire month of opening and provide regular updates on FaceBook. There are thousands of pumpkins planted so nobody will miss out!
Are the small gourds poisonous to eat?
None of the gourds are poisonous, they are all part of the pumpkin/squash family. Some are not recommended to be eaten as they are purely for decorative use and would taste nasty. It is not recommended as an un-supervised play toy with a small child as like anything, a child could choke if they were chewing on them.
What stalls do you have?
Halloween/Christmas Bunting & Linen.
Walking Pet Balloons.
