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!

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!

Neil and his team from The Bean Bike will be back with their delicious burgers and hot dogs. If you’re feeling peckish pick up a meal deal including a burger, chips, and drink.

The Bean Bike team will be 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!


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.
