This is the second October in a row that we have had a blast at the Lombardi Ranch Halloween Pumpkin Patch Festival. The ranch is located north of Los Angeles near Santa Clarita. The Lombardi Ranch is a family-owned, working farm with a road-side produce stand. However during the month of October, it transforms into a huge pumpkin patch with fun activities for the whole family!
Besides picking up the perfect Halloween pumpkin, you can also take a wagon ride, check out the corn maze, or jump in the petting zoo. If you are competitive, you can enter the scarecrow contest, craft fair, or bake off. For the full schedule of activities, go to the Lombardi Ranch Calendar of Events on their website.

I love the idea of supporting our family-owned farms, especially here in California where the the drought is challenging an already difficult way of living. If you live in the Los Angeles area, I would definitely recommend a family day-trip up to Lombardi Ranch!
