Best Pumpkin Patches in Los Angeles When You’re high

Pumpkin patches could be really trippy in a good way. If you haven’t been high in a pumpkin patch, this year should be the year you experience that. Let loose your inner child this Halloween and enjoy one or a couple of these pumpkin patches in Los Angeles listed below.

Haunt’oween LA

After providing much-needed diversion last year, the Halloween drive-through returns to Woodland Hills for a walking adventure. In addition to themed photo ops, you can also pick and carve a pumpkin here.

Whittier Pumpkin Patch

If you live in the Gateway Cities and want to entertain your kids while buying some pumpkins, you should visit the Whittier Pumpkin Patch. It’s a destination for the whole family where you can pick out pumpkins, find a furry companion at the petting zoo, reach new heights on the inflatable bounce houses, and then ride a pony. Admission is free and prices for activities vary. Everything is cash only, but there is an ATM on site.

Mr. Jack O’ Lanterns Pumpkin Patch

Things we value most at the moment: Online ordering and delivery and free parking. This seasonal pumpkin patch luckily offers all of that at its four locations in West L.A. (11852 Santa Monica Blvd), Hollywood (6407 Sunset Blvd), Torrance (17520 Prairie Ave), and at the Original Farmers Market (6333 W 3rd St). Additionally, there will be festive activities like pumpkin decorating, a spooky maze, pumpkin bowling, and a bounce house.

Pa’s Pumpkin Patch

There’s no reason a pumpkin patch should not bring back the same memories of booth games, rides, and sweet treats. Treat yourself to a weekend of classic festival favorites like giant slides, amusement houses, and more – all harvest-themed, of course. In addition to a huge selection of different pumpkins, you’ll also find haystacks, corn stalks, and gourds (for that epic Halloween party you are hosting). For kids, there’s a mini train ride, bounce houses, and face painting. It’s a little kid’s dream, so be prepared to take them to every single ride and game – you’d be a shoo-in for the Parent of the Year award.

Shawn’s Pumpkin Patch

If you are on a budget before the holidays but still looking for a lively pumpkin patch experience, Shawn’s Pumpkin Patch is for you. As with most pumpkin patches, admission is free and activity prices range from $3.50 to $7, though most tend to be cheaper. The pumpkin patch in Mar Vista has a limited number of activities this year, but there is a petting zoo, train rides, a mini straw maze, and a sand art booth.

Forneris Farms

Forneris Farms is back, with a four-acre cornfield maze and, of course, an impressive array of pumpkins. Tractor rides take pumpkin patch visitors on a narrated tour of the cornfields and around the farm. Everything is cash only (and the maze and train will cost you $20 in addition to the $5 pumpkin patch admission), but there is an ATM on site.

Tina’s Pumpkin Patch

Meeting a friendly llama is what makes the trip to this tiny but charming spot so worthwhile. You may not be in the mood for pumpkin collecting – or Halloween for that matter – but interacting with these highly entertaining petting zoo animals is a memory you should definitely make. The patch itself is located under a large tent, with stacks of pumpkins on sale for a reasonable price. For younger visitors to the pumpkin patch, there are pony rides ($7 on select days), train rides ($3.50), and a free straw maze. The pumpkin patch is located in the Westfield Fashion Square parking lot, so you can park there for free.

Underwood Family Farms

Each October, Underwood Family Farms transforms into an autumn wonderland as it celebrates its annual Fall Harvest Festival with a variety of events each weekend, from Wild West Weekend to All About Pumpkins. Throughout the month, guests can be entertained by live music, animal shows, corn mazes, and an endless supply of pumpkins. Admission to the festival is $16 per person the first two weekends and $22 the following weekends in October. On weekdays, admission is $10, free for children under two, and parking is free. For more details, visit the website.

Tapia Brothers Farm

Get lost. No really, get lost in Tapia Brothers Farm’s epic corn maze (an entire parking lot across from the patch) with a much-needed map and sheet of trivia ($9; closed Mon). The festive pumpkin patch also features-you guessed it-pumpkins galore ($2 admission) as well as a fresh farmers market (with addictive popcorn), a delicious roasted corn stand, a petting zoo, pony rides, and a tractor-pulled train. Be sure to stop by on the weekends, when you’ll have all the activities at your disposal.

Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch

This former WeHo hotspot packed its bags a few years ago and moved to Culver City. The popular patch sticks out like a scarecrow in a pumpkin patch. With rows of pumpkins, a giant hand-carved rocking horse, a petting zoo, and a mini straw maze, it’s as if someone dropped off a piece of land in the middle of a fast-paced city. This little piece of harvest also features pony rides, face painting, a super slide, pumpkin decorating, a spider bounce house, and food and drink booths. Stop by on weekday afternoons if you can and pay $5 admission, otherwise, you’ll have to pay a higher admission price on weekends and Friday nights.

Tanaka Farms

Want to try harder at pumpkin picking? Head to Tanaka Farms in Irvine (known for its Hello Kitty-themed farm a few years ago) for festive activities like wagon rides ($6) and a petting zoo. Note, however, that this themed area is very busy, so you’ll need to reserve parking in advance on weekends ($10). And if you want to stock up on more than just pumpkins, you can pick to your heart’s content daily at the U-pick vegetable patch. Look for the debut of a sister patch in Costa Mesa that promises a more mellow experience.
