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.

We get a buzz from seeing hundreds of happy families enjoying our spaces every day of the season. We know what it’s like having to come up with ideas for the whole family to enjoy, especially ones that involve getting outside and enjoying what nature has to offer.

We decided we loved Halloween and the humble pumpkin so much that we wanted to bring the magic to more people. That’s why we have five amazing picking patches full of pumpkins and Halloween activities.

Having seen just how popular pick your own pumpkins had become, we quickly expanded so more families from further afield could enjoy a fun day out.

People love our patches so much, they started to ask us if we could offer activities year round and we thought how amazing it would be to have a summer-time activity too. That’s when we decided to grow tall, beautiful sunflowers and grow an amazing Maize Maze at each site!
