Pumpkin Picking at Primrose Vale.
It is with great disappointment that due to the interactive nature of our Halloween trail, we have concluded it cannot go ahead this year, so instead you can head to our fields to pick your own.
We are releasing tickets online starting Saturday 17th October. Tickets will be released each day at 5pm for the following Day, in the same way our PYO worked through the summer. Tickets are free, and will allow you to enter and walk to our Pumpkin patch following our one way system, from where there will be thousands of pumpkins to choose from, plus lots of photo opportunities with some true monsters.
Group sizes are limited to 6, and will be in accordance with any current Government guidelines. (This of course may be subject to change should rules change further). We don’t expect to be so busy Mon – Fri 19th – 23rd but ticketing will be in place to avoid unexpected crowds.
The pumpkin patch is not in a muddy field – due to the nature of our site we have created an area on grass, which should mean less muddy feet and cleaner pumpkins!
A limited number of sanitised Wheelbarrows will be available for hire (£2 per use) should you not wish to carry your pickings in your arms.
Our play area will also be ticketed with timed sessions, with time for us to clear down for the next group…
If you just want to pop in for a pumpkin, that’s no problem, we are now selling them through the shop, and we will have staff outside to serve you too.
Hot drinks and light refreshments will also be available.
See below for how we’d like it to be in a normal year!
Come and join in the Halloween fun during the October half term holidays.
Our ever popular Halloween farm trail is running again in 2019.
Suitable for children of all ages, but most enjoyed by those between 3 and 15, our trail takes you around the farm to discover various challenges, tasks and puzzles. It’s a great way to spend a few hours, out in the fresh air over the half term – and there’s even a small treat for everyone!
We have thousands of home grown pumpkins for sale of all shapes and sizes in our pumpkin barn!
Hot drinks and light refreshments will be available from the Potting Shed Cafe, with seating in our marquee.
Open Daily :
Throughout the Half Term: Thursday 24th October – Sunday 3rd November
Time : Halloween Farm Trail from 9am – 4pm (last entry) – Shop open from 9am – 5pm
Sorry, no dogs permitted on the trail.
Admission: On the day £6 per child, Free entry for accompanying adults.
NB: All children must be accompanied by an adult. Sturdy footwear is recommended – We won’t close for bad weather, but be prepared for mud! Pushchairs that can cope with grass are normally fine in all but the wettest conditions, but there will be areas you cannot enter.
For those of you who are nervous: there may be some dark areas, but we are not out to scare you!
Farm shop and pumpkin sales open as normal (no admission fee!)
Note: How busy we are depends hugely on the weather, However peak times are dry weekdays 10am – 1pm! Afternoons and weekends (yes really!) tend to be less busy… Be aware you may be directed to park across the main A46 at peak times.
Shopping? Regardless how busy the car park gets, the shop remains relatively quiet… if you are just shopping, don’t be deterred – we keep some easily accessible parking spaces available for you!
