Explore a Pumpkin Patch in San Luis Obispo

Big ones, little ones, orange ones, green ones! Who knew there were so many shapes, sizes, and so much fun to be had with pumpkins? Whether you're craving a pumpkin pie or searching for the perfect orange specimen to carve, consider visiting one of SLO's festive pumpkin patches.


Sure, there are piles of pumpkins waiting for you at the grocery store, but why settle for a shopping cart when you can upgrade to a tractor ride? Loads of orange squash, along with gourds and other veggies, are waiting for you right now. Stop by Avila Valley Barn and see which pumpkin speaks to you. Will you pick a plump one, a bumpy one, or maybe even a curly gourd? Grab a snack for yourself then stop to feed some of the farm animals. They'll be glad you stopped!


It's pumpkin picking time at Chesebrough Farm! With over 60 varieties of pumpkins to choose from, you're sure to find a one-of-a-kind pick.

Pumpkins, and hayrides, and cows, oh my! That's right, cows love to chomp on the pumpkins leftover in the patch so you better get to picking before they're all gobbled up. Head out to Paso Robles and plan to get lost when you arrive. The giant corn maze spans over three acres and is filled with enough twists and turns it'll make your head spin. They'll be waiting for you 'til the cows come home but if you go, remember to bring cash or your checkbook. They don't deal with digital or cards, but your phone is sure to fill up with fun photos before you leave.
