Frost on the Pumpkin? Sooner than you Think!

September 8, 2008

Despite the fact that the temperatures have soared here in the Delta lately, fall is just around the corner. In a matter of weeks the local Pumpkin Patches will open and all the delights of the season will be upon us.

East Contra Costa County has an abundance of produce, including pumpkins, since it makes up part of the agricultural core of central California.

Here are a few places to go this year. Be sure to bring the kids and the camera and create some wonderful new memories that will last a lifetime.

  • Smith Family Farm located at 4430 Sellers Avenue in Brentwood. They are open to the public weekends from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
  • Clayton Valley Pumkin Farm located at 1060 Pine Lane in Clayton. Have fun riding the “Pumpkin Farm” Express train with your kids or on your own. There’s also Duck Races, Farm IQ Tests and plenty of plump pumpkins.
  • Joan’s Farm and Pumkin Patch located at 4351 Mines Road in Livermore. Enjoy selecting your own pumpkin, petting the animals or making your way through the corn maze.

These are just a few of the places you can visit. Of course you can always just jump in the car and take a drive through Brentwood and maybe find that little out of the way Patch that has the ‘perfect’ pumpkin just waiting for you! Either way, there’s fall fun to be had.
