Bob's – An Authentic Pumpkin Patch

Last weekend, the whole family went to our favorite pumpkin patch – Bob's Pumpkin Farm in Half Moon Bay CA. Why was it our favorite? Because after the noise and crowds of the other pumpkin patches, the authenticity of this quiet farm was a relief.

You actually walk among the vines when you pick one of these pumpkins.

Bob's Pumpkin Farm is on HWY 1, south of HWY 92. If you are driving south it is on the left hand side. There are billboards north and south that advertise it.

Nice and quiet…
Bob's has a good variety of pumpkins, gourds, and other vegetables. Besides that, there isn't much else except a few fun signs and a small farm animal area.

They call this a swan gourd but we thought this one looked more like a snake or hissing goose!

He walked to the very end of the patch to find just the right one.

Hey! How come I'm the only one making a silly face?

Bob's does not have a petting farm but it does have some animals that you can look at up close. We lucked out, there were piglets and baby goats! When it was time for us to go, we had a hard time because the babies kept doing cute things and we were drawn back again and again.

Sharing her sandwich.

I want to pet this one!

What a face!

Beautiful

This guy bathed in the water then rolled in the dirt, just like a kid at the beach.

Now for those of you who say you can buy a pumpkin for much cheaper at your local grocery store, remember you are not going to a farm just to get pumpkins. You are going for the whole experience. I highly recommend it, and bring your camera!
 
I chose these two – too interesting to carve!
