Pumpkin Festival

Our Pumpkin Festival 2020 will run from 10th October until 31st October

Entry to the Pumpkin Patch is priced at £3.50 per person.

You need a ticket for every adult and child aged 2 years and older. You will have up to 2 hrs in the pumpkin patch.

Your ticket is redeemable against your pumpkin purchase.

It is not valid for use on any other day, against carving kits, or items from the Ice Cream Parlour.

Pre-booking through this site is essential. Please do not just turn up on the day without prior booking.
Proof of booking will be required on entry to the field.

You are welcome to pick as many pumpkins as you like. For additional pumpkins purchased on the day, payment by cash is advisable as our card machine does not always work in the field due to poor signal.
Wheelbarrows will be available for you to borrow on the day (subject to availability)

Tickets can be combined for purchases. For example, if you have 2 tickets you could pick either 2 small pumpkins or 1 large pumpkin as this equals the same amount of money.

PUMPKIN WASHING
We have a cold water pumpkin washing available for you to clean your pumpkins before you take them home / carve them. Children must be supervised by a responsible parent/guardian at the pumpkin washing.

PUMPKIN CARVING: CARVE IN YOUR BUBBLE
Pumpkin Carving Kits can be purchased on the day (subject to availability)
If you have purchased a carving kit from us you are welcome to stay and carve your pumpkins on our outside socially distanced pumpkin carving stations. A family or bubble group can use a station. Disinfectant spray is provided for you to clean your station before and after use. We will safely dispose of your pumpkin waste.

WHAT ELSE CAN WE DO AT PALETTE AND PASTURE?
At the farm, there is also an Ice Cream Parlour you can visit to purchase hot and cold drinks, ice creams, sundaes, milkshakes, and waffles, sausage rolls and pasties. The Icecream Parlour is heated indoors.
There are goats and sheep to meet and feed, pedal tractors and a digger pit to enjoy.
The Ice Cream Parlour is less than a 5-minute walk from the Pumpkin Patch and from where your car is parked. The ice cream is made on the farm using the fresh cows’ milk from the dairy herd. It is absolutely delicious and well worth a visit.

BOUNCE IN YOUR BUBBLE

If the weather is dry, Jumping Jos (at weekends and half term week) will have their inflatables in the field next to the ice cream parlour for you to book your own ‘bounce in your bubble’ session.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION 
The Pumpkin Patch is not suitable for wheelchairs or non-terrain pushchairs.
We do not use any sprays or pesticides on our Pumpkins. You will notice this as you walk through the Pumpkin Patch there will be insects and weeds. This is normal, and it is why we recommend you wear long trousers, long-sleeved tops, and welly boots. No open toe shoes or flip-flips to be worn in the field, please. No toilets are available at the Pumpkin Patch.

Dogs: We are dog friendly. Well behaved dogs on leads are very welcome. We just ask you to pick up any waste and put it in the bins provided

Wet Weather: This is an all-weather event. We have all-weather parking for your vehicle.
Please dress appropriately for the weather on the day

DIRECTIONS
When visiting please follow the Palette and Pasture Somerset Gelato Signs which start from the Trudoxhill village turning off of the A361. On arrival, you will be turning into a field. Please park in the field on the left-hand side (it is a big field with ample free parking space available). You will then need to walk to the Pumpkin Patch by foot. There will be signage to guide you in the right direction. It is less than a 5-minute walk from where you will be parking.

COVID-19
In light of Covid-19 and social distancing regulations, we are limiting numbers into the field.
We, therefore, need you to book a place for every adult, and child aged 2 years and older. This will enable us to offer you both a safe and enjoyable experience.
You will have up to 2 hrs to pick your pumpkins and take photographs.
Alcohol hand gel will be available on entry and exit.
Carving stations are socially distanced, and only one family/bubble group will be permitted per station at any one time. Disinfectant is available on each carving station.
Disinfectant will be available at the wheelbarrow parking for you to spray your wheelbarrow before and after use.
