the Tanaka Farms Pumpkin Patch is now open....and there are a lot of fun things to do on the farm! what makes this pumpkin patch unique to most of the other patches in Orange County, is that you can pick your own pumpkin off the vine.
you can start in the U-Pick pumpkin patch, where you can take a wagon ride around Tanaka farm. visit the petting zoo with over 40 animals and then take a wagon back around the 30 acre farm. while riding, look around to see which pumpkin you might want to take home. the wagon then will stop at the 1 acre corn maze. you and the kiddies will have a great time trying to find your way through the maze. you can also pick your own vegetables. there is a 2 acre area of vegetables growing with carrots, onions, green beans, and radishes for the children to pick. at the end of your visit, you can pick your very own pumpkin off the vine.
