This year our maze is celebrating the publication of The Scarecrows' Wedding, the eagerly awaited new picture book from the creators of The Gruffalo and Stick Man. Written in Julia Donaldson's glorious rhyme and illustrated in glowing colour by Axel Scheffler, The Scarecrows' Wedding is a fabulous love story, with drama, humour, originality - and a happy ending! Two scarecrows, Betty O'Barley and Harry O'Hay, are planning the perfect wedding. But wicked scarecrow, Reginald Rake, has other ideas and almost ruins their special day. Harry must become a hero before he and Betty can have the wedding of their dreams. The stunning maze design recreates the front cover of the book, with Betty and Harry standing together in a wheat wreath. The maze will features 3 miles of pathways bridges and viewing towers. As you navigate the maze, take part in the quiz trail and help Harry O'Hay find all the items he needs to create the perfect wedding day. There will also be a mini maze in the shape of a flower. The shorter maze will be ideal for families with younger children, those less able or those who simply fancy a sedate stroll. Dates: 12 July to 7 September 2014 Prices: Individual: £9.75 Concessions: £9.00 Children under 2: Free Group rate: £9.00

Children can dig their own potatoes for free every weekend during September at our annual Spudfest event. The Farm has planted half an acre of Marquis Potatoes. The 11,500 plants should produce up to 10 tonnes of potatoes so there will be plenty for hungry families to unearth. Just pick up a bag and fill it with spuds to boil, mash, bake or chip.
