We recently visited Webb Ranch Farm Pumpkin Patch in Portola Valley, near Palo Alto, and found it to be a cute patch with very helpful, friendly staff. The patch features organic pumpkins grown on-site, as well as pumpkins from other local growers.

We came late in the day and the patch was still crowded with families and Halloween music was playing. The fields were not as full of pumpkins as I assumed they would have been at the beginning of the day. But there were still many varieties to choose from, including all the now-standard varieties (Cinderella, Jarradale, Morning After, Lumina, etc.) from $5-$30, Bird Gourds for $2, Large Swan Gourds for $20, and Turban Gourds from $5-$15. A plethora of minis, munchkins, and Indian corn is available and you can purchase bales of straw and corn stalks for your decorating needs.

Up the hill, at the far end of the patch, there is another field of pumpkins as well as u-pick berries and sweet corn. Next to the u-pick berries, a little haunted house suitable for the wee ones is available for $3 that is made up of black-lit props. Adults and older kids won't find it scary and should focus on the pumpkins and petting zoo.

On weekends, let your kids jump in the inflatable castle for $5. There are also hayrides for $5 at 11 am, 1 pm, and 3 pm, and a petting zoo and pony rides from 10 am-3 pm.

The pumpkin patch is adjacent to the Web Ranch Framers Market, which is open every day from 10 am-6 pm and features strawberries, peppers, tomatoes, and other fresh produce.
