Bay Area Pumpkin Patches

We usually make a trip each October to one of the more scenic pumpkin patches, like in Half Moon Bay or Perry Farms (aka Ardenwood Farms in Fremont). Sadly Perry Farms doesn’t have a pumpkin patch this year. We’ve had fun on the hay ride through the vegetable fields, and the big climbing hay stack.

Instead this year we went to the world’s saddest pumpkin patch, one of those parking lot corners which sells Christmas trees come November. They had bounce houses ($5 for 15 minutes) and a sad lady working there who appears to live in a trailer on site. It just didn’t have the same feel as going out to the actual pumpkin patch where they grow things other than concrete. I’m feeling like a very bad mother right now.

So hopefully you’ll make it to a great pumpkin patch. I was going to put a list here, but found a great list already online. No reason to reinvent the wheel, especially since this website has a comprehensive list by county:
