1. EVENT UPDATE: PUMPKIN SMASH NOW ONE DAY ONLY

    Due to an incredibly busy pumpkin picking season, the Great Pumpkin Smash will now be taking place on Thursday 1st November only, plus it is now only £2.50 to take part!

    The Pumpkin Smash is all about using up the remaining crop that is no good for picking or eating, and returning it to the soil to help our fields recover for next season. There will be summer fete style games and tractor smash demos, where we will use our farm machinery for some messy fun!

    We have had thousands of visitors to the Spookley Pumpkin Festival since the 13th October and as a result, we do not have as many pumpkins left for the Smash as anticipated – even though we started with well over 30,000!

    We are sorry for any disappointment caused, however we have once again been blown away by the popularity of the Spookley Pumpkin Festival. Thank you to everyone that has visited us over the last three weeks, and we look forward to a fun-filled day at the Pumpkin Smash tomorrow!

    The Great Pumpkin Smash will open from 10am-4pm tomorrow (Thursday 1st November), with last entry at 3pm. To take part, you just need to pay for one small pumpkin per person (£2.50) and you get the rest to smash for free!

    Remember to wear old clothes, as it could be a messy day and on arrival, visit the carving barn before making your way to the field. We will also have plenty of catering on site with the marquee, Udder Room Café and Playbarn.

    Please be aware that once the pumpkins are gone, they’re gone, so come early in the day to avoid disappointment!
