“We’ve been farming this piece of dirt for over 100 years; our roots run deep. From asparagus to zucchini and everything in between, we are just a BIG garden. While, California grows more fresh produce than any other state in the country, we are 3,000 miles fresher and more flavorful. You can taste the difference.
Looking for the authentic pumpkin picking experience? Look no farther than Carrigan Farms. Conducted every September since 1975, our huge pumpkin patches might be old fashioned, but we assure you they are the real deal.
In October, each trip to the pumpkin patch includes picking your own pumpkin, right off the vine! Trips to the patch generally last about 50 minutes from start to finish and include a stop at the petting zoo.”
