So you can take an amble around our pumpkin patch, picking the perfect pumpkin or pumpkins to take home with you.
The whole family is welcome to our pumpkin patch, and you can book easily via our website. You’re welcome to stay for up to two hours at Hatters Farm, giving you plenty of time to pick your pumpkins, enjoy a coffee and some food, and try out some of our activities or explore our farm shop. We recommend you come earlier in October, to avoid any rain and muddy weather.
Fancy strolling through our pumpkin patch at night? Bring your torches and keep an eye out for ghouls as you visit one of our pumpkin nights, and soak up the spooky atmosphere under the moonlit sky. You will be able to choose from our thousands of pumpkins and squashes in our pumpkin patch, as well as grab some food and refreshments.
If you’re feeling brave, you can head into the maize maze and get lost trying to find your way back. Or try out our pumpkin cannon and fire our pumpkins at our spooky Halloween-themed targets with the family. Our pumpkin nights will be open every evening on the 23rd, 24th, and 26th - 30th of October.
There are less tickets available for our pumpkin nights than our daytime sessions, so make sure to book your tickets way in advance to avoid disappointment. You can take a look at our Instagram to see last year's pumpkin picking and our fun Halloween events.
