Last Call for a Pumpkin Patch

It's last call for the pumpkin patches. This is your last week to get those adorable pictures of your kids crawling, sitting or standing on those pumpkins. If you haven't been to Underwood Family Farm, put that on your calendar.

Underwood Family Farm in Moorpark is one of my favorite pumpkin patch destination. They have a bit of everything from animal shows, pony rides, tractor  rides, small farmers market, pick your own veggies and of course get some of the best pumpkins for the right price, plus more.

One new attraction that is a must mention is the bean pit. We adults may not think much of it, but the kids do. It's just four pieces of wood put together in a large square shape filled with beans. Yah, that pit will amuse your kids like nothing ever has. My daughters spent at least an hour in there. It is like a day at the spa with you with your kids. You get a chance to really just sit there and enjoy watching them have fun. They are not running around, just making snow angels and coffee for mom out of beans.

If you have yet to get your pumpkins or need more Underwood Family Farm has pumpkins for a steal. Your traditional pumpkins are by size not the pounds. So, the smallest one will run about $3 and a very large one will be $12. When I say large I mean huge. I managed to get a couple for our home and for the girls school at a great size and price (between $3 & $4). Of course they have specialty ones that are by the pound. Those are usually the crazy funky ones.

During the holiday's and Fall Harvest Festival my suggestion is to visit during the weekdays. There are less crowds and the entrance fee is less (
$6 weekdays vs. $15 weekends). The weekend does have it's perks there is food, pig races, performance and more that are not available during the week.  Parking is not a major issue, you just may be parking in the back if you arrive too late in the day. Make sure to wear comfy shoes after all this is a farm. Underwood Family Farm is great for all kids, including the little one in you.
