Forest Home Farms Pumpkin Patch
Reviewed 10/18/08 by Hauntmistress
Forest Home Farms Pumpkin Patch in San Ramon is right off a busy street, but once you get in the patch, you don't even notice.
The patch is laid out in a field in the shadow of the farm's barn. Bales displaying the pumpkins are scattered throughout the patch. There are many varieties and sizes of pumpkins to choose from, all in good condition. During our visit, kids were running around climbing on the hay bale maze next to the patch and parents were taking the opportunity to take photos of the kids with the scarecrows that watch over them from the pumpkin pyramid.
Roaming the large field adjacent to the patch are sheep and goats who are very friendly and let us pet them over and through the fence for quite some time, although I'm sure they were really more interested in being fed than petted. Unfortunately, no food was available for sale.
There are wagons for you to haul your pumpkins and people were excitedly piling in their pumpkins four and five high. The pumpkins are priced by weight – we got one big one, a small one, and a medium one for a very reasonable $12. There are also large gourds for $1, large hay bales for $13, mini-hay bales for $10, corn stalk bunches for $9, mini-orange pumpkins two for $1, and small gourds for $0.75. On weekends you can take a train ride on the Branch Line Railroad operated by the Museum of the San Ramon Valley through the farm for $3.
If you're looking for different varieties of pumpkins in a nice setting, make your way to Forest Home Farms Pumpkin Patch.
