Explorer1.com Review – The farm is 43 miles north of Santa Cruz on Highway 1, but the gorgeous coastal drive and the farm’s massive hay maze ( hay labyrinth) makes it well worth the drive.
The maze can be a little daunting, so we think this is an ideal activity for adults and older children. There are other activities such as hay rides, petting zoo, pony rides, and plenty of home grown pumpkins to keep the younger kids entertained as well.

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!
