Mangini Farms in Pleasant Hill is different from most patches we've visited, as there are two patches, one that is free and one that is $3.

The free patch had some pumpkins on the ground, but most were in big boxes on the field (the type used to ship pumpkins to supermarkets) and didn't seem to be in great condition. They certainly weren't conducive to searching for your pumpkin.

The other patch is a little prettier, but not exactly polluted by pumpkins, and has a few corn stalk tepees to play in and a corn maze. You pay $3 to get into this patch, and that gets you a small pumpkin, a hay ride, and access to the corn maze.

This was a bit odd to me, as I didn't want to take a hay ride or go in the maze, I just wanted to enter the patch to look for pumpkins, but I wasn't going to pay $3 in the hopes of finding my perfect pumpkin from the limited availability.

There are wheelbarrows for your pumpkins (varieties include standard orange, Lumina, and Cinderella) and also mini-pumpkins, gourds, hay bales, almonds, and Indian corn for sale.

Be sure to take a look at our Events Calendar or our map of pumpkin patches and haunted houses to find all the other great events going on in the Bay Area.
