Halloween Maze

An October night, in the dark, the rustle of the old Maize in the breeze, you are lost, you can feel somebody watching but can’t see them, yet!

Welcome to Spooky Fun in the Maize Maze

We will have 2 types of Halloween Maze experiences. Day time is child friendly and not too spooky- Evenings in the Maze are dark, a little unnerving but spooky and fun.

Facilities

Plenty of free parking, lots of space to run around, stroll and play. We have portaloo toilets, disabled toilets, and baby change facilities onsite.

There will also be food, drinks and snacks onsite. Please note we do not allow dogs on site except registered guide dogs.

What to bring

All-weather clothes, wellies, umbrellas, sunscreen, sunhat.

Spare change to donate to Great Ormond street Children’s Hospital.

PYO Pumpkins

PYO Pumpkins is our favourite activity alongside getting lost in Mazes and eating ice cream! We have 1000’s and 1000’s and 1000’s of pumpkins in our fields all waiting to be picked, carved and eaten!

Put your wellies on, grab a wheelbarrow and go for a leisurely walk, or a crazy screaming run, depending on your mood, and discover which Pumpkins choose to go home with you this year!

We are also happy to introduce you to Pumpkinology. Pumpkinology has, until now, only been taught at schools for witches & wizards, but we think it is the most exciting subject in the world so have shared our favourite recipes, ideas and activities so that you can begin your education in this most fascinating of topics!

If you want to come twilight picking and enjoy the maze you will need to book.

Loads to do besides PYO pumpkins…

Everybody knows that for Halloween a good pumpkinologist needs at least a wand or a broom to decorate and use. Fun crafts coming to a pumpkin field near you!

Crowe Farm hot dogs, burgers, bacon rolls, amazing sausage rolls and some cheeky cheesy chilli chips will help fuel the days activities!
The Grounded Coffee team will be back in Fordingbridge bringing their lovely coffee, cakes, hot chocolate and other autumnal goodies to help keep you warm and cosy for your pumpkin picking!

Whether you're hunkering down dressed as your favourite ghost or ghoul, our pumpkins make for practically perfect photo opportunities!
