Explorer1.com Review—According to my 7-year-old daughter, they have some awesome inflatables and a large assortment of pumpkins. Plus, you are just up the street from Lemos Farm, a favorite for younger kids.

Explorer1.com Review—This is the home to a massive hay maze ( hay labyrinth). Because of the extra activities and large selection of home-grown pumpkins, we think this is an ideal pumpkin patch for families with older children.
Activities (train, hay rides, maze, etc.) range from $5 to $10 per person.
Bob’s Pumpkin Farm
Highway 1, 5 miles south of Half Moon Bay

Explorer1.com Review—Although it looks like they reduced their pumpkin planting this year, they still have a huge selection of pumpkins. Additional activities a picnic area, farm animals, and hay pyramid. It’s far less crowded and lower key than the farms located on Hwy. 92—making it a great pumpkin patch for families with very small children and toddlers.
Pumpkins range from $1 to $30. Activities low to no cost.
N. Cabrillo Hwy., Half Moon Bay, CA
Located next to Farmer John’s Pumpkin Farm on Highway 1, just a few minutes north of Half Moon Bay.

800 N. Cabrillo Hwy., Half Moon Bay, CA
Phone: (650) 726-4980
Explorer1.com Review—This is a great location for families with smaller children. Plenty of photo opportunities and a large selection of pumpkins. It lacks a lot of the fun activities for older children such as bouncy houses, mazes, etc.
Pumpkins can be a little pricy—especially for the heirloom varieties.

Explorer1.com Review—Similar to Lemo’s Farm (and right across the road) is Pastorino’s Gifts & Plants. It offers a nice variety of activities for the kids, shopping for the adults, and a nice selection of pumpkins during the Halloween season.

Tunitas Creek Family Farm has limited public access this year. They are primarily a wholesale producer, but they will be harvesting on weekends. If you are interested, feel free to stop by. They are in a beautiful rural setting with farm animals and historic elements. You can even pick your own sweet corn. The owner’s children or mother would be happy to sell you a few out of the Field.

Explorer1.com Review—Safeway has a great selection of pumpkins and gourds at very reasonable prices. Very large pumpkins are just $6.99! Of course you do miss out on the experience a navigating a field to find the best possible pumpkin. You also miss out on the kid friendly activities like the bouncy houses and petting zoos, but you can’t beat their prices.
