Uesugi Farms Pumpkin Patch
Reviewed 10/02/09 by Hauntmistress
Uesugi Farms Pumpkin Park retains its Haunted Bay designation as one of the prettiest pumpkin patches in the South Bay. This is in large part due to its mixing of marigolds and pumpkins. Instead of just placing their pumpkins on the dirt or on hay, they set their pumpkins between rows of beautiful, vibrant orange and yellow marigolds. The rest of the park is green and grassy and welcoming. In fact, even the ride to the parking lot is pretty and unique because you drive through a path in the cornfield with rows of corn stalks towering over the car.
Uesugi has great attractions for the kids, all very cute and fun, including Bootsie the Bee, a corn maze leading to a small petting zoo; and Storybook Path, a storybook themed corn maze. The cow train is also a favorite of ours, as the kids sit in little cow cars, each with a different name like Hugh Heffer and Riblet, and take a ride around the park and its giant pyramid of pumpkins. If riding in cows isn't your thing there is the longer Pumpkinville Railroad, which travels through the patch to a scarecrow village, as well as a carousel and weekend pony rides and petting zoo.
Speaking of pumpkins, you can’t beat Uesugi’s pumpkin prices. They are some of the most reasonably priced we’ve seen at a patch this year. We bought a big orange pumpkin for $13 and nine minis for $3. And, the pumpkins were all in great shape, making it difficult to pick the ones to take home!
If you’re in the mood for a little shopping, visit Uesugi’s gift barn where you can purchase great Halloween and harvest-related arts and crafts. While mom and grandma are shopping dad and the kids can grab a drink and a snack from the snack shack or play on Uesugi's large lawn in the picnic area.
Every Saturday and Sunday Uesugi has free live entertainment.
Of note, the Field of Screams haunted hay ride is not operating in the back field of the pumpkin park this year.
