If you have not yet visited Underwood Farms in Moorpark, you must go now. If you have, you completely understand why you must go now. Underwood Farms is the Disneyland of pumpkin patches. Last year was our first visit and it was amazing. This year we coordinated with many other families and made a day out of it. The drive is easy but the distance is far. It is away from the traffic of LA and the openness is inspiring.
The kids started the day off running from the top of the hill to the bottom. One fabulous father even bear hugged the kids as they ran to the bottom which elicited many squeals of delight. More than one tractor ride was had for all and even a semi-kids only ride. My son shared with his bestie and they enjoyed the freedom of no parents. And then it was off to choose pumpkins. And to my surprise they were not as overpriced as I had recalled. The largest one was $12 and for a small sized pumpkin it was between $3-$5. Not bad at the Disneyland of pumpkin patches.
