Explorer1.com Review—According to my 7-year-old daughter, they have some awesome inflatables and a large assortment of pumpkins. Plus, you are just up the street from Lemos Farm, a favorite for younger kids.
Pumpkin prices range from $2 to $25.
Andreotti Family Farm – Closed
185 Verde Rd., Half Moon Bay, CA
Phone: (650) 726-7548
Explorer1.com Review—This is the home to a massive hay maze ( hay labyrinth). Because of the extra activities and large selection of home-grown pumpkins, we think this is an ideal pumpkin patch for families with older children.
Activities (train, hay rides, maze, etc.) range from $5 to $10 per person.
Bob’s Pumpkin Farm
Highway 1, 5 miles south of Half Moon Bay
Phone: (650) 726-4567
Explorer1.com Review—Although it looks like they reduced their pumpkin planting this year, they still have a huge selection of pumpkins. Additional activities a picnic area, farm animals, and hay pyramid. It’s far less crowded and lower key than the farms located on Hwy. 92—making it a great pumpkin patch for families with very small children and toddlers.
Pumpkins range from $1 to $30. Activities low to no cost.
N. Cabrillo Hwy., Half Moon Bay, CA
Located next to Farmer John’s Pumpkin Farm on Highway 1, just a few minutes north of Half Moon Bay.
Explorer1.com Review—This no frills pumpkin patch has a variety of pumpkins that range from $1 to $10. The selection is limited so better hurry for the best selection.
N. Cabrillo Hwy., Half Moon Bay, CA

Explorer1.com Review—This year around vegetable and fruit stand offers a nice variety of pumpkins during the Halloween season.
800 N. Cabrillo Hwy., Half Moon Bay, CA

Explorer1.com Review—This is a great location for families with smaller children. Plenty of photo opportunities and a large selection of pumpkins. It lacks a lot of the fun activities for older children such as bouncy houses, mazes, etc.
Pumpkins can be a little pricy—especially for the heirloom varieties.

Explorer1.com Review—Similar to Lemo’s Farm (and right across the road) is Pastorino’s Gifts & Plants.

Tunitas Creek Family Farm—Closed for 2017 season
333 Tunitas Creek Rd., Half Moon Bay, CA
Phone: (650) 726-9710
Explorer1.com Review—A small family farm that’s open to the public during September and October. It’s a very low key farm — making it an ideal pumpkin patch for families with very small children and toddlers. They have pumpkins, gourds, squash and more. And as a bonus, they have a couple of very friendly goats that seem to love kids!
Please note that Tunitas Creek Family Farm is CLOSED for the 2017 Halloween season. They plan to reopen it to the public in 2018. We hope so because this is a great farm for small kids!
