The pumpkins are gone!
We have a few Cinderella ones left and the small pie pumpkins we have to keep for the school children that are scheduled to visit.
We recommend you visit the Petaluma Pumpkin Patch on Stony Point Rd. to find more pumpkins.
Praised as a good place to take small children for pumpkin picking by the Marin Mommies' site.
(Thanks for your kind words!)
Driving on Gossage Ave. you will see the beautiful sign our grand daughter
Kasey Peterson painted for us!

School Tours with Educational talks about
Honey Bees in the Spring and Summer by appointment.
The farm closes for pumpkins October 25th.
We are sorry that we have run out before the last week end of the month but we are a small farm and just got too popular!
School tours are booked and the remaining pie pumpkins are
promised to the school children that are coming.
We can make reservations for school Spring tours. The spring tours will teach the children about bees, earth worms and farm animals.
We are retiring from pumpkin farming this year! It was lots of fun and we thank all of you who came year after year. We will spend more time with the bees and planting for them and educating people about them.
Located just north of Petaluma, California, this farm is in
the scenic historic countryside of Sonoma County. It was once one of the many chicken ranches Petaluma was famous for.
Directions from Highway 101: Leave Highway 101 at the north end of town and go South on Petaluma Blvd. North. That will take you to Gossage Ave. Gossage Ave. is the next street after the Cinnabar Theater. Make a right turn.
Go up the hill to 636 Gossage Ave.
Every year we grow a variety of pumpkins. Many are excellent for cooking.
The big white ones are called "Polar Bears." Some are huge!
Call (707) 765-4582 or e-mail now to book fall school tours. E-mail is really the best as we are outside most of the day!
