Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Patches & Map

Half Moon Bay pumpkin patches and farms

Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Patches

Our 2016 Guide to Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Patches & Map provide families with information on local pumpkin patches, farms, and vegetable stands so they can find the perfect pumpkin and create cherished family memories. (The photo above is from a recent Half Moon Bay Art and Pumpkin Festival.) 

The Halloween Season is getting an earlier start this year. Typically, the major pumpkin players gear up for an early October selling season. However, several of the vegetable stands along Highway 92 (around the green houses) are already putting out their pumpkins and it is only September 11. Not to be out done, the pumpkin patches are organizing their hay bales and should be up and running very soon!

Scroll down for a map of Half Moon Bay pumpkin farms and a alphabetical list of local pumpkin patches.

4-C’s Pumpkin Patch

12371 San Mateo Rd., (Hwy 92), Half Moon Bay, CA
Phone: (650) 726-9614

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.

Andreotti Family Farm

329 Kelly Ave., Half Moon Bay, CA
Phone: (650) 726-9151

Explorer1.com Review—Located on Kelly St. just before Half Moon Bay State Beach, this is a small farm with a fruit and vegetable stand housed inside a very picturesque barn.  No additional activities for children.

Arata Pumpkin Farm 

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.

Bob’s Pumpkin Farm

Highway 1, 5 miles south of Half Moon Bay
Phone: (650) 726-4567

Explorer1.com Review—A large selection of pumpkins, a picnic area, farm animals, corn maze, hay pyramid, and far less crowded and lower key than the farms located on Hwy. 92  — making it a pumpkin patch for families with very small children and toddlers.

Farmer John’s Pumpkins

800 N. Cabrillo Hwy., Half Moon Bay, CA
Phone: (650) 726-4980

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. 

G. Berta’s Pumpkin Patch

12599 San Mateo Rd. (Hwy. 92), Half Moon Bay, CA.

Phone: (650) 726-4922.

Explorer1.com Review—A small fruit and vegetable stand on Hwy. 92. 

Lemos Family Farm

12320 San Mateo Rd., Half Moon Bay, CA
Phone: (650) 726-2342

Explorer1.com Review—This family farm specializes in year round activities for children such as pony rides, tractor/train rides, petting zoo, etc.  Adults may find the seasonal decorations and crowds a little much, but children seem to love it!

Marsh and Sons Pumpkin Patch & Produce Stand

12950 San Mateo Rd, Half Moon Bay, CA 94019 (650) 726-5792

Explorer1.com Review—This patch has great prices on their pumpkins.  Most are $5 dollars or under. Some ornamental varieties and giant pumpkins are more.  The patch also has inflatables (slide, bounce hose and obstacle course). It’s $5 for unlimited playtime.

Tunitas Creek Family Farm

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!

Advisories

The Region’s Fall Advisories:

Traffic Conditions. During the pumpkin season, traffic in to and out of Half Moon Bay can be extremely challenging—especially during the Art & Pumpkin Festival weekend. It’s a good idea to plan ahead and arrive early and leave late. Go to www.caltrans.com to learn more about road conditions.

Yes, it’s still water, water, water! California is undergoing an extreme drought. If you are planning a lake vacation be sure to check about water levels. That rafting trip, fishing, or skiing can be impacted.

EXTREME fire danger. The drought has created a very dangerous combination of dry vegetation and no moisture in the air to help contain any fire. Please use extreme caution during your trip.
