Fall has almost arrived and that means it’s time to pack away the beach gear and bring out the fall décor. When you’re ready to grab your pumpkins, here’s a roundup of nearby pumpkin patches that are taking the traditional pumpkin patch visit up a few notches!
Keema’s Pumpkin Farm (Elk Grove) It’s a family affair at Keema’s, and you’ll feel that when you visit their farm. The Keema family has owned, operated and lived on the land for more than 100 years. Join them for some fall fun with hay rides, a giant hay pyramid, visits with farm animals and, of course, a huge selection of fresh pumpkins to choose from. Visit their website to see a schedule of visits from food trucks throughout the season.
Dave’s Pumpkin Patch (West Sacramento) Just outside of Elk Grove in West Sacramento, Dave’s has been a staple to the Sacramento region for many years. There are fun things to do for kids of all ages, including the adults who are kids at heart, with their “Cornaval.” Visitors can make their way through a corn maze, roll through the giant boxes of corn, root pigs on during their pig races, watch pumpkins fly through the air from the “Pumpkin Chunkin’” and so much more.
Roemer Pumpkin Patch (Sacramento) Since 1995, the Roemer Pumpkin Patch has been a favorite fall tradition for many local families. Their family farms spans 500 acres and you’ll have 30 of those acres to explore while you search for the perfect pumpkin. After you’re done, take a ride through the fields on the hay ride or make your way through the five-acre corn maze.
Fog Willow Farms (Wilton) Fog Willow combines education and the traditional visit to the pumpkin patch for a fun-filled family experience on their nine-acre farm. After you pick your pumpkins, kids have the opportunity to learn about agriculture and farm life with hands-on experiences with large and small animals. Don’t forget to grab a sweet treat from the Sugar Shed on your way out.
