Lemo Farm’s Pumpkin Patch is Officially Open

It’s past Labor Day, which means that the pumpkin patch at Lemos Farm in Half Moon Bay, California is officially open. This family-owned farm in Half Moon Bay has been around for over 50 years. The farm is open year-round, but Autumn is an especially great time to visit.

Beginning with Labor Day weekend, Lemos Farm adds a wide variety of autumn-themed activities to the farm. The highlight is a pumpkin patch that spans the entire farm space. You can walk around, find pumpkins, put them in a cart that Lemos Farm provides, purchase them, and take them back to your car.

You can also enjoy fall-themed treats, like homemade pumpkin pie. The pie is delicious! It’s the perfect thing to have as a little snack after carrying tons of heavy pumpkins around.

Lemos Farm also has a great hayride and a train ride that takes you through a whimsical and silly Wild West city. 

One of the highlights of the farm, though, is its set of friendly baby goats. You can visit the goats, feed them, and walk into their stall. Goat yoga is a must-do as well.

Visiting Lemos Farm in the fall and into the holiday season is a great family activity. Especially with high temperatures in inland areas of the Bay, Half Moon Bay is a cool respite from the heat.

The only thing to keep in mind is that traffic can get intense coming into Half Moon Bay. If you’re heading to Lemos Farm on a busy weekend, leave plenty of time.

Make sure to check out this Bay Area classic throughout Autumn, and all year round. Although the pumpkin patches are seasonal, Lemos is always there for you and your family.
