Remember: ALWAYS call (or follow the link to the farm's own website, if the name
is a blue link) to confirm the information before you go!
This page provides a
detailed list of Amador and Eastern California's pumpkin patches, corn mazes, hay rides
and other Halloween farm stuff!! Click here to see the listings of pumpkin patches, corn mazes and farms in Amador and Eastern California or just scroll down the
page! Some are farms, where you take a hay ride out into the field, others are elaborate farm stands with mountains of pumpkins and other activities and some
are simple roadside stands. All should have loads of pumpkins to choose
from. To really make it fun for your kids, look for those that have
the extra activities, like a corn maze, spook house, or hayride. There is
usually a small fee for the mazes (of course, the more elaborate mazes
tend to charge more. Hayrides are often free.
ALWAYS call before you go to confirm all information, they don't always report changes to me!
We have loads of related resources
On our Pick-your-own website, we also have pages with our own
instructions on canning, freezing and drying many other fruits and
vegetables, such as how to make jam, apple
butter, applesauce, spaghetti
sauce, salsa, pickles,
ketchup or freezing
corn (these links open new pages, just close them to return here). Be sure to come back at Christmas if you are looking
for a cut-your-own Christmas tree farm!
Look at the bottom of the page for links to resources on home canning, picking
tips, recipes, etc..
