Where To Go Pumpkin Picking Near Essex?

I don’t know about you, but this time of year just seems to fly by. Every year I see the cutest images of my friends children sitting in the middle of pumpkin patches and think to myself ‘this year I will take the girls’ then by the time I actually get round to finding somewhere, they are gone, and they are left to pick from the manky ones they everyone has left behind… of course, they still love it, we still buy them (then buy another nice one from Tesco to actually carve!)

Prime example of leaving it too late… My little one loved it still being with her 2 cousins…

So for all those that are just as unorganised as me, I thought I would put together a list of the best places to go pumpkin picking near essex (that’s if I aint too late already… )

Were you thinking….. Where can I pick my own pumpkin in Essex? We offer you the chance to visit our pumpkin patches and pick your own pumpkin direct from the field.
We have thousands of pumpkins for you to choose from and lots of different varieties of squash and pumpkin too!
To keep up with demand for all you wonderful pumpkin pickers, we sometimes have to replace the field with ready picked pumpkins from our other fields.
You simply turn up, pick your pumpkin from the field and then pay our helpful staff once you have chosen. Simple!
Our pumpkin patches in Colchester and Basildon offer a great family day out! Feel free to bring your picnics and eat them in the fields…..
