Halloween might still be months away, but one farm in Medway has already embraced the spooky with a massive pumpkin-themed challenge.

Maze Moon, best known for their Pumpkin Moon branded pick-your-own pumpkin fields in October, have used 250,000 seeds and GPS technology to create an enormous maze.

The three miles of tracks on the Rainham farm were created out of planted maize, and offer a challenge for families looking to get an early fix of the most orange month of the year.

James Kemsley, farm manager, wanted to create a fun summer activity for families after the effects of lockdown meant people were stuck inside for so long.

He said: "We've tried to offer something for people which is also safe, and we've made wider pathways than normal to allow for social distancing."

The project used a whopping 70,000 seeds per hectare to create the intricate pumpkin design and the surrounding maze corridors.

Families are also invited to take part in their "pumpkin pile-up" game whilst they attempt to make their way to the centre.
