A trip to your local Pumpkin Patch is one of the most popular things to do in October as a family. While small ones tend to pop up in empty lots in the city we always recommend heading into more rural areas to get a much more genuine Pumpkin Patch experience. This year we checked out Live Oak Canyon Farm in Redlands, CA. The farm was jam-packed with things to do in addition to its homegrown pumpkin patch. It has so much in fact we didn’t even make it back to the u-pick pumpkins.If you have any friends with kids that might enjoy Live Oak Canyon Farm and our content please let them know about us, because we're the worst with social media...
