Rodoni Farms Pumpkin Patch
4444 Coast Rd. (Hwy. 1), Santa Cruz
Reviewed 10/04/14 by Hauntmistress
Past seemingly endless fields of Brussels sprouts, you'll find Rodoni Farms splayed out on a hillside on Highway 1, just north of Santa Cruz.
This is a pumpkin patch to behold. There is a huge field of many varieties of pumpkins, gourds, and squash. You can take a wheelbarrow along the long rows of orange and white pumpkins until you find the ones you want to take home.
There are stacks of small decorative winged gourds (small $.50 large $1), as well as butternut squash, spaghetti squash ($2-$6 priced by size), and Sugar Pie Pumpkins priced by size. Jack Be Little mini-pumpkins are $.50 for small $1 for large. Jaradale and standard orange pumpkins are priced by size with large ones priced at $30. There are many Polar Bear Pumpkins, which is a newer variety white pumpkin, some of the largest we’ve seen.
In addition to pumpkins and gourds, Rodoni Farms offers organic artichokes, the aforementioned Brussels sprouts (stalks $5, loose $2 basket), artichokes ($1), and leaks ($.50 each).
Rodoni Farms’ proprietors are third-generation farmers who transitioned to organic farming over the past 10 years. The first generation began in 1920 when Dante Rodoni came from Italy to the U.S. when he was 10 years old. Upon his retirement, he turned the farm over to his son Mario, who still farms as M.Rodoni & Co. with his two sons!
So come and enjoy. Kids will love the little hay play place, and kids and adults alike will love roaming the fields of this pumpkin patch!
