Tanaka Farms Pumpkin Patch. Not Your Average Pumpkin Patch In Orange County
Updated: Sep 21
Tanaka Farms located In Orange County has quickly become one of our favorite farms in SoCal. They have tons of fun events throughout the year but have you had a chance to visit their Pumpkin Patch? Since I can remember, every year they arrive and have stole the show and I have no doubt this year will be just as epic! Im excited to share with you all the fun our family and our friends from the OC Mommy Blogger Tribe had in previous years at Tanaka Farms Pumpkin Patch and I've updated all the details for this years festivities 2023.
Things to do at the farm
We enjoyed their wagon ride, crafts, yummy food, veggie picking, pumpkin cannon and tons of fun photo opportunities. We got to visit their barnyard animals like donkeys, llamas, piglets, chickens, bunnies, mini horses, sheep and fed goats. During their veggie picking we each got the opportunity to pick our own carrots, onions, radishes and cilantro. Not to mention we got to pick our first pumpkins of the seasons at their huge pumpkin patch. Have you ever picked your own pumpkin right out of the pumpkin patch? Well at Tanaka Farms you can! Walk the field and pick the perfect pumpkin just for you. The hunt for that perfect pumpkin is always our favorite part and they have every color, shape and type of pumpkin.
