The farm is run by Nottinghamshire County Council and employs staff with mixed abilities and offers training to people with disabilities.

Councillor Stuart Wallace, Chairman of Nottinghamshire County Council’s Adult Social Care and Public Health Committee, said: “Although the lack of rain over the summer prevented us from growing giant pumpkins, this year has been a good year for quantity as we have around 200 small and 150 large pumpkins ready to be made into Hallowe’en lanterns.”
