Section 3 – “Other stuff”
Are you doing pumpkin picking this year?
We will have pumpkins available for sale in our farm shop during October. However we have decided not to run our pumpkin picking sessions this year as we feel that it would be very difficult to manage them safely in line with current government guidelines.
Look out for more events from us soon though. We will post on our Facebook page and update the website with more information as we have it.
Are you doing Breakfast with Santa this year?
Due to the current uncertain situation regarding gatherings / mixing socially, we have decided not to run this event.
Look out for our popular Walking Nativity, details of which will be available soon.
