Twilight Picking Sessions are designed to be a “spooky” event aimed at 8+, however we leave this to parental discretion.

Please wrap up warmly and bring you brollies if it’s raining as this experience is outdoors. The ground may be uneven or muddy underfoot so we advise wearing your welly boots!

While we continuously strive to make all events as accessible as possible, our parking, food and drink area is in a grassy farm field that can be uneven in places therefore may only be accessible with specific wheelchairs.

While we welcome buggies and pushchairs in our food and drink area it is very difficult for them to navigate the pumpkin patches so we would advise against it.

Your furry friends are welcome in the food and drink area but due to hygiene reasons we cannot allow them on the pumpkin patches. Please ensure dogs are kept on a lead at all times and are never left unattended.

If you would like to bring a larger vehicle please contact pumpkins@foragefarmshop.co.uk
