This year we've grown even more pumpkins than before - we have carving pumpkins ranging from so small they'll fit in a toddlers hand up to ones that will fill a wheelbarrow! We have also grown even more of the delicious eating varieties this year and lots of different decorative pumpkins - all shapes, colours and sizes! There's a pumpkin for everyone!
Pumpkin prices are from £1 for tiny ones to £10 for ginormous ones.
When are you open?
10am -4pm on 7th & 8th, 14th & 15th, 21st & 22nd October and then every day 26th until 31st October. On 26th & 27th October we are open until 11-5 to give you chance to come after school!
Where are you?
Lodge Farm, Cundall, York YO61 2RN
Can I bring my dog?
Sadly you can't bring dogs for health and safety reasons.
Do I need to book tickets?
Yes you do - this is so we can manage and car park and wheelbarrows and ensure you have a smooth experience with us.
How much does it cost?
Pumpkin prices vary from £1-£10 depending on size. This year entry will be ticketed so we can control visitor numbers and be covid secure - tickets are available now (click here to book) - they are £1.50 each. Everyone must have a ticket except babes in arms.
Will it be muddy?
That depends on the weather - if it's rained recently then yes! Check our social media for weather and mud updates!
If it's very wet we'd recommend leaving the pram in the car
but otherwise buggies are welcome and all the paths are wide enough for a buggy.
What shall I bring?
Wellies for all the family, gloves (pumpkins plants are spiky!), a camera (don't forget to share with us on social media!) and a strong bag to carry your pumpkins home as they may be muddy. Our pumpkins are already cut so you won't need to bring a knife or cutters (these are not allowed on site).
Do you take card payments?
We take card and cash (but no Amex sorry). Contactless payment is preferred.
What facilities are there?
We have parking on hard standing, toilets, baby change, a refreshment stall selling hot and cold drinks and snacks and straw bales for picnics.
Is there parking?
Yes, we have acres of parking, quite literally! Please keep to 5mph, all driving and parking is at your own risk, we accept no responsibility for accidents. Please park as you would in a supermarket car park (ie right next to each other!) to allow us to fit all the cars on the concrete!
Are pumpkins good to eat?
You bet! We've grown some crown prince pumpkins which are especially for eating as opposed to carving. Here are some great recipes to get you started!
