Pick Your Own Pumpkins
Foxes Farm Produce has two locations in Essex, one in Basildon and the other in Colchester. They have a variety of ‘seasonal’ offerings such as PYO pumpkins, family mud runs, Christmas trees and a maize maze.
Pick Your Own Pumpkins – PYO Pumpkin Patch
Unlike some pick your own pumpkin fields, this one doesn’t open on wet days so do check before you leave home. This year they have plenty of pumpkins including some really big ones! They also have a pumpkin scavenger hunt, lots of photo opportunities, over 15 varieties of pumpkins plus hot and cold food and drinks.
Cost? You must prebook online in advance. A family ticket is just £6 and covers 4 people. Additional tickets are £2.00.
They usually have a maize maze open for most of the summer.
