Pick Your Own Pumpkins in Colchester, just in time for Halloween.

Foxes Farm Produce have been growing and harvesting pumpkins for over 10 years now and open their Pumpkin Patch every year so you can pick a perfect pumpkin for Halloween. 

To enter the PYO pumpkin patch this year you must buy a ticket for each adult or child over 1 years old attending, & select a 10-minute entry time-slot. This will help to keep queuing to a minimum. 

There are over 15 different pumpkins and squash varieties this year which we hope that you will all enjoy picking, carving, creating or cooking with! In addition to our pumpkins and squashes, there will be:

× Pick your own pumpkin patch

× Ready cut pumpkin picking from the field

× Straw bales sofa

× Bale mountain

× Obscatacles

× Scavanger Hunt game

× Lots of photo opportunites

× Wheelbarrows

× Catering

× Toilet facilities

× Hand sanitiser stations

× Cash/card pay desk

× Car parking on site

Vouchers are non-refundable or exchangeable.
We are not sure whether we will be open right though to Halloween so we advise you book early to avoid disappointment. If we cannot open for any reason such as wet weather, or stock availability then we will issue you a refund to the card you purchased the ticket from. PLEASE NOTE IF WE HAVE TO CLOSE DUE TO WET WEATHER OR STOCK AVALIBILITY YOU WILL BE GIVEN A REFUND NOT A DIFFERENT SLOT. You will need to book an alternative slot yourself in this circumstance.

We appreciate your ongoing support, especially following the wet harvest of 2019 and 2020! We really hope to see as many of you as possible again this year for what is looking to be a great harvest. 
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you soon! 

Please visit during the early weeks if you can as there are a limited amount of pumpkins so the patch may not open all the way through to Halloween. Please also note the weather can affect the site and it may have to close at short notice. Everyone needs a ticket (except babies in arms)


Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed at the Pumpkin Patch due to Health and Safety.
