Join us this Halloween half term for a fabulous, family-friendly day of Pumpkin Picking at Cannon Hall Farm.

Don’t forget that tickets to our pumpkin festival include ALL DAY farm admission plus a free pumpkin for every paying child

Our farm is stunning in Autumn, with our animal foot safari providing a closer-than-ever peek of our most famous animals and our brand new pumpkin patch providing a completely new experience for our visitors.

Come and see all the farm favourites like Millie and Primrose the pesky goat kids, plus Helen our hand-reared Alpaca, Ozzie Horseborne and Pony Hadley and our new Highland Calf Lilibet. You will also see some of the animals made famous on the Channel 5 TV show This Week on the Farm / Springtime on the Farm / Autumn on the Farm.

As well as amazing outdoor and indoor playgrounds, we’re also opening our pumpkin patch for you to capture those insta-worthy pictures. There will also be some themed activities and a programme of farm talks and races.

– Our pumpkin patch is open until 5pm each day.

We have PLENTY of pumpkins that are being constantly replenished – we will not run out and the best ones won’t be picked early – they will be laid out all day on a rolling programme. 

Children who have a paid ticket are entitled to ONE free pumpkin each and will be allocated a token on arrival.

ExtraPumpkins – To make it easier on you and our team, if you need any extra pumpkins please try to buy these online when you purchase tickets or upon entry to the farm. Pumpkin tokens are £3 each and you can pick any one you like in our field, regardless of size. 

Fancy Dress – Fancy dress is welcomed and we will be handing out spot prizes on the day for those who make the best effort. However, please do bring a change of clothes for the play equipment to make sure you stay safe.

The Scarecrows: Each paying child will be given an activity booklet when they arrive. We really hope they enjoy completing the challenges within.
There’s three challenges to complete – and the kids can search out our three ‘actor scarecrows’ who are on hand to give them reward badges. Each child can earn a maximum of three badges each.

As we navigate around our ‘new normal’ we are pleased to announce that our staggered session times with online bookings have continued.

Prices for this event vary – please select your preferred date and time to see price options. There are no walk ins permitted – every ticket has to be booked in advance online.

Please note that all tickets for pumpkin picking have to be booked in advance online. Unfortunately this is classed as a premium event which means no vouchers / prepaid passes can be used during this period as per our voucher restrictions.
