As of Oct. 22nd we are sold out of our pumpkins and honey! The only pumpkins we have left are reserved for the school groups that are on our calendar. Thanks to all you wonderful people who came.
There are many nice farms around the area that still have pumpkins.
Rated in the top 5 best pumpkin patches in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2011. Praised as a good place to take small children for pumpkin picking by the Marin Mommies' site.
(Thanks for your kind words!)

The farm closes for pumpkins October thirty-first.
Hours we are open in October:
Week Ends 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
School tours are usually gone by 2 p.m. so if you are just dropping in on a school day, it is best to come after that.
We have all the reservations for school October tours now.
We have planted an interesting variety of pumpkins this year including the popular Polar Bear and Cinderella.
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!
