Once you park the car, head to the shop or to the small kiosk (near the field) to pay the entry fee. A tractor will drive you from the entrance to the field. We decided to walk to towards the hay playing area and took the tractor from there to the pumpkin field.

Take a wheelbarrow, choose your pumpkins and head back to the tractor to return to the entrance. Pumpkins price goes by their size. The kids enjoyed the small playing area, while we were visiting the shop with local products.
