PICK YOUR OWN PUMPKINSIN HOO, ROCHESTER, KENT
2019 will be our 10th year of opening our gates to the public in October. We started back in 2010 with a few rows of orange pumpkins and invited some friends and family over to pick some pumpkins. Pumpkin picking has grown enormously over the years and we have grown with it. We plant many varieties and colours of pumpkins and winter squash, gourds, sunflowers and Halloween corn. This year we have some new varieties and of course everyone’s favourites. We grow large orange pumpkins which are ideal for carving but also many small squashes which are perfect for eating.
We welcome all the family to our Pumpkin Picking days but sorry no dogs as many people do eat their pumpkins and squash. Assistance dogs are of course welcome.
The Pumpkins are grown in the fields you find them in so care needs to be taken as the ground is uneven and the pumpkin vines can be trip hazard. It can be muddy but we do have grass pathways throughout the fields which are usually wheelchair and pushchair friendly except in extreme wet weather. We would suggest wellies or boots especially if it has been wet. Gloves might be good as well as the stalks can be prickly. The pumpkins will already be cut off their plants so no cutting implements are needed.
There is an ample car parking on grass fields in farm. Please do not park on the roadside.
ENTRY IS FREE and NO BOOKING IS REQUIRED
Please bring strong bags for your pumpkins as they are easier to carry in a bag and they may be muddy.
