Our Picking Patch Story

Here’s why we love growing things in the ground.

Just a few short years ago, we decided that growing pumpkins was our thing. Now we grow over 150,000 pumpkins and 40,000 sunflowers every year.

Here’s more about us and how everything began.

Here’s why we love growing things in the ground

Just a few short years ago, we decided that growing pumpkins was our thing.

Now we grow over 150,000 pumpkins and 40,000 sunflowers every year. We get a real buzz from seeing hundreds of happy families and groups of friends enjoying our spaces and making memories every day of the season.

Here’s more about us and how everything began to grow.

We know that it’s tough to come up with activities for the whole family to enjoy, especially ones that involve getting outside and enjoying nature. Picking Patch is perfect for everyone!

We decided we loved Halloween and the humble pumpkin so much that we wanted to bring the magic to more people. Having seen just how popular PYO pumpkins had become, we quickly expanded so more families from further afield could enjoy a fun day out. That’s why we now have five amazing picking patches full of pumpkins and Halloween activities across the UK.

People love our patches so much, they started to ask us if we could offer activities all year round. That’s when we decided to grow tall, beautiful sunflowers and an amazing Maize Maze at each site every summer!

See you soon

Picking Patch Team!
