So, having only every been to Cammas Hall for their pumpkin patch, a lot of people had recommended to try out Hatters Farm Pumpkin Patch.
On arrival you’ll find plenty of staff to show you where to park. It is in a field, but they do have mat’s down to drive / park on. But, be careful when walking as they can be a bit slippery. It would be advisable that if you have a car that wouldn’t cope with that, maybe don’t take it!!
You walk towards the entrance where you’ll find a pumpkin cannon & Hatters are the first attraction in the UK to have their very own pumpkin cannon (Please note under 13s must be accompanied by an adult, and under 6s will not be allowed to fire the cannon). The Pumpkin Cannon will close one hour after the final arrival slot of the day.
Once done, you then walk in through the entrance where you then check in with one of the staff. Booking online is essential & can be done here.
They have plenty of wheelbarrows to hand, so grab one & go get picking. (carry on reading below the photos)
They do also have on site Waffle & Co, they did look delicious, but we had dinner ready for when we got home, so will try them another time. The queue was moving quickly though. You can find them on Facebook & Instagram to.
We did get Hot Chocolates (Mummy had a Mocha) from the The Java Coffee Club and they were delicious. You can find them on Twitter, Facebook and, Instagram.
But one thing I will say is that there was only one person working and for the amount of people on site, the queue did build up & moved quite slowly (but was worth the wait). So either they need to have more staff, or Hatters need to get another food /drink vendor in to cope with the amount of people there. Especially being Halloween / Half term week when they are open all day long and have lots of visitors. This being said, please don’t let it put you off going, the drinks were delicious and they guy working was really nice.
All in all we had a fantastic experience and will definitely be going back next year.

Hatters also provide a wholesale service, for more information, click here.
Also, one last thing – old shoes or wellies highly recommended as it can be very muddy there (especially after all the rain we’ve had)
