    - Tickets are £2 per person including little ones and there’s a maximum of 6 people per group.
    - You can still pick your own perfect pumpkin from our patch and pay at our outdoor pay stations.
    - Takeaway food from The Witches Cauldron will be available.
    - We are lucky that we have a huge outdoor acreage so we can all socially distance easily.
    - Come and see a sprinkling of magic from Magic Martin who will be with us all day, and may bring a long some of his dinosaur friends…
    - Unfortunately, there will be no carving sessions, no tractor and trailer rides, no face painting and no scheduled magic shows as before.
    We will however have an AMAZING Pumpkin patch with thousands of homegrown pumpkins for you to choose from! There will be scarecrows, a trail, photo opportunities and more. You can use the wheelbarrows to collect your favourite pumpkins from the fields and we will make sure that handles are disinfected in between uses, alongside a number of other extra cleaning measures. Pumpkins will be priced from extra small to jumbo (from £1.50 - £10 for the jumbo ones) and be sized with the wood rings to determine the size/price.
