Frequently Asked Questions



Is there parking?

Yes, there is a large parking area within a farm setting and it is also free to park. There will also be disabled parking if you speak to one of our parking attendants.

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 hand washing facilities 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.

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.

Do you sell hot food there?

Yes, there are hot foods and drinks, Hog Roast, Pizzeria, vegan/veggie options and more! Please feel free to bring your own refreshments if you wish.

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.

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…

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 unpleasant. 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.
