Adobe Pumpkin Farm's Haunted Barn

Antique tractor and perfect pumpkins

While Half Moon Bay may be the "Pumpkin Capital of the World" the North Bay has plenty of choices for the pumpkin needy public. 

We recently toured some of the North Bay's better known patches. The first patch we visited was Adobe Pumpkin Farm and we have to say it wasn't a bad place to start.

At the intersection of East Washington Street and Adobe Road you'll find the Adobe Pumpkin Farm. Thirty acres of Halloween fun for the whole family. But don't be deceived, you won't have to walk for days to find that perfect Halloween pumpkin.

As soon as you get out of your car you're greeted by a plethora of choices laid out before you. You might be tempted to just grab a pumpkin right then and there but don't give in, there is just too much to do and see.

At Adobe you can visit with farm animals including: cows, pigs, and sheep; play in corn stalk teepees; explore a hay bale maze; get your picture taken at one of their numerous photo ops; relax and have a picnic; have an ice cold drink, smoothie, or snack; view antique tractors and farm equipment; and of course buy pumpkins, gourds, indian corn, broom corn, and vegetables, many of which you can pick yourself; not to mention their spooky haunted barn.

For the older crowd there are plenty of shopping opportunities in the barns. In the main barn is a large collection of reasonably priced Halloween crafts and harvest decor as well as a smaller selection of Christmas oriented signs and crafts. In a separate barn you can shop from an amazing collection of hand-made holiday wreaths. There is also a small coffee shop to help you keep up with the kids and plenty of places to sit and relax in the shade if you can't.

On the weekends, Adobe Pumpkin Farm really comes to life. Weekends this fall will feature all of Adobe's standard attractions plus Ricky's BBQ, an inflatable party jump, giant slides, and horse and hay rides. The Pasta King will also be making an appearance on the weekends of the 18th & 19th and the 25th & 26th.

Adobe will be hosting two very special events this season starting with the Adobe Pumpkin Festival on the weekend of October 18th and 19th and the not to be missed Dia de los Muertos festival on November 1st with Mexican food, games, mariachi band, and crafts.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Adobe Pumpkin Farm and know you and your family and friends will too.
