Located in picturesque Petaluma, about an hour north of San Francisco in Sonoma County, Petaluma Pumpkin Patch is run by fourth-generation Petaluma Farmer Jim, featuring sustainably grown pumpkins that can be picked right from the field. It’s one of the oldest patches in the region, with families visiting for over 30 years, and it also offers a corn maze that’s been rated one of the world’s best by Readers Digest, with a new one created every year. There are farm animals, pony rides, a huge straw mountain with over 500 straw bales to climb, a maze for tiny tots, a sandbox, face painting, a carnival fun slide, and more. Plus, the food and drink menu includes chicken and gyros along with carnival-type fare like corn dogs, kettle corn, cotton candy, and hot chocolate.
