Pick Your Own Pumpkins! 

Pumpkin Patch Colchester and Basildon Pumpkin picking
Our Pumpkin Patches open on Saturday 29th September 
Colchester CO6 3PR 
Basildon SS15 4ER 
We’ve been growing and harvesting pumpkins for over 10 years now and then one day we thought... why not open the farm up and let our customers pick their own perfect pumpkin directly from the field! So that is what we did and you loved it!  
So why not join in the fun – all you need to do is put on your wellies and bring the whole family to the patch where you can walk through the field and pick your very own pumpkin! 
Bonus- It’s free entry to enter the pumpkin patch and play our pumpkintastic games (the Corn Maze is extra) with no need to book - you just need to pay for the pumpkins you pick - It’s PUMPKIN PERFECT! We accept both cash and card payments.  
Unfortunately, we cannot allow dogs at the Pumpkin Patch due to Health and Safety. 
Please see our Pumpkin Patch FAQ page for information about your visit and to see what the pumpkin patch is.

Wet Weather Gauge!

What about the rain?? 
The rain is great to help make our pumpkins grow into perfect ‘pumpkin’ giants, but can also give us lots of mud when we have our pumpkin patches open.  
Please make sure you check our wet weather rain gauge on our website or facebook page before you come to make sure we are open so the wannabe witches and wizards can whizz through the fields to find their pumpkins. 
Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for the latest updates on the patches and the weather! 
We are giving away x100 free pumpkins in October at our pumpkin patches!
