Pro tip: If you go to Farmer John’s pumpkin patch in Half Moon Bay, do not ask Farmer John if you can purchase a snack. And don’t talk about anything else that might remind him of those jumpy-house, Target-parking-lot-style pumpkin patches. It won’t go over well.
But if you just buy some pumpkins and mind your business, you’ll have a lovely time and maybe get some sweet photos at the farm. The teepee makes for a beautiful backdrop and there’s tons of land for littles to run around and get that energy out while you lounge on a haystack or in an oversized Adirondack chair.
