October is here! I’m especially fond of October, the leaves are changing colors we have Indian summer, it’s my birthday month and there are pumpkin patches all over the Bay Area. My parents would take my siblings and I  to the pumpkin patch so each one us could pick out our own pumpkin. When we got home we would crave our pumpkins and roast the seeds. This memory is something that has stayed with me. I passed it on to my son and I hope he passes it on to his kids.

These are some of the top pumpkin patches in the Bay Area.

Joan’s Farm and Pumpkin Patch at 4351 Mines Rd. Livermore, CA 94550, in the heart of wine country.

Lemos Farm at 1230 San Mateo Rd. Half Moon Bay CA. 94019, Lemos is known for family fun.

Nicasio Valley Organic Farms at 5300 Nicasio Valley Rd. Nicasio CA. 94946, is located in Marin.

Clancy’s Pumpkin Patch at 1620 7Th Ave. San Francisco CA 94122. Clancy’s is the very first pumpkin patch in San Francisco.

Clayton Valley Pumpkin Farm at 1060 Pine Lane Clayton CA 94517. Clayton has a play land, train  and Duck Races.

Families pack up the kids in the car go to a pumpkin patch near you or go to one of theses. If you have never been to a pumpkin patch, start a new tradition you will never forget.
