Borchard Farms Pumpkin Patch

Pumpkin Patch Borchard Farms

It’s October! We decided to go to the pumpkin patch a bit early this year and be ready for Halloween. We went to a place outside of Salinas called Borchard Farms. We have never been there before but their website said it had lots of activities beyond just buying pumpkins so we thought we would check it out. We dressed Vinny in fall colors and his jean “marty mcfly” jacket.

Its a bit of a drive through fields to get there but it was a fun drive. Along the parking lot area there were large pumpkins sitting on top haystacks, the perfect photo op!

We didnt bring his stroller or backpack but we saw the wagons to pull the pumpkins in and thought Vinny would love riding in that! And he did! Mommy was afraid of how rusty and dirty the wagon was, but Vinny didn’t seem to notice (LOL, like he would care!)

They had a HUGE variety of pumpkins for sale! Tiny ones, small, medium, large, extra large, and jumbo pumpkins!

Vinny had fun hugging the big pumpkins and toddling through them all.

They had  wall on the outside of their barn (which was made up to be a haunted house on the inside) that had a bunch of old iron stuff.

Next we checked out the animals.

After the animal tour, we started to shop for our pumpkins for the season.

Can you spot my little Boo man in this picture? He spotted the SPOOKY sign all by himself and started running towards it. Then i had Jeff place him behind it for the picture!

Vinny had a blast since we let him ride in the wagon and also run around everywhere. They had a kids area with a bounce house, hay rides and more activities, but we just did the free stuff because that’s all we would have really enjoyed anyway. Can’t wait to carve our pumpkins!

On this day..
