welcome to the Pumpkin Patch at Limoneira Ranch!

The twenty thousand people from Southern California (and beyond) that typically arrive for Santa Paula Rotary’s Pumpkin Patch are in for a treat this year. The Limoneira  Ranch, with wide open green vistas framed by mountains will be the site of fall fun in October with Santa Paula Rotary’s bigger and better than ever Pumpkin Patch and brand new 5 acre Corn MaiZe.

The Pumpkin Patch, previously held at Santa Paula based Faulkner Farm has been relocated to the Limoneira Olivelands Ranch where the global agribusiness, Limoneira, began back in 1893, and is still in operation producing citrus and avocados for the world’s hungry consumers.  “History abounds, with barns, outbuildings and lots of vintage farm equipment and orchards for everyone to see and enjoy” says Ginger Gherardi, Rotary board member.

Visitors to the patch will experience flying pumpkins from a recreated French Trebuchet (aka Pumpkin chucker). Kids and the young at heart can catapult pumpkins thousands of feet towards the “Castle” and win prizes. There’s also a towering hay pyramid, hay maze, FFA animals to see and hold, old fashioned hay wagon rides through the groves, acres of pumpkins, squash and gourds, food, crafts, live entertainment and a harvest of fun.

Santa Paula Rotarian Mike Mobley said, “We’re really excited about the MaiZe and this year’s Patch. Limoneira Ranch is “the” place to pick a perfect pumpkin, have fun and learn a little something about agriculture, whether you come with your kids, grandparents, spouse, date or school. It just seems to appeal to everyone.”

According to Carlos Juarez, Santa Paula Rotary President “Many people have said that Santa Paula’s Pumpkin Patch is a tradition, and that it just isn’t autumn or the start of the Holiday Season without it”.

We look forward to your visit!
