What To Wear

Though The Pumpkin Patch East Bergholt is normally pretty dry, it is still a field and can be muddy. Please ensure you dress appropriately...we recommend wellies and waterproof clothing for little ones.  


We warmly welcome well-behaved pumpkin picking pooches, but ask that you keep your four legged friends on a short, controlled lead and that you pick up and dispose of all waste. We also reserve the right to ask any dog or owner to leave the Pumpkin Patch.
