To the pumpkin patch we go!
A couple Sundays ago my friends Andrew, Sara and I drove to Underwood Family Farms in Moorpark, CA for their annual Fall Harvest Festival. It was a beautiful 45 min drive northeast of Los Angeles through the Rocky Peak Park mountains in Simi Valley. It’s always nice to get out of the busy city for a day.
Upon arrival we realized this is definitely a family activity, but no matter your age who doesn’t love farm animals, corn mazes and homemade pumpkin pie?! The whole festival is quite the ordeal and covers a large area. There’s a petting zoo, as well as many animals to feed and watch, a corn maze, tractor ride, a country store, live music and lots of pumpkins! We attended the Animal Show which featured rats, a chicken, a pig and Bingo the most adorable black lab! We also watched the last act of the pig races and heard live blue grass music!
Underwood Family Farms was so much fun to visit and it was the perfect day to be outside enjoying fall! I’m a sucker for Midwest type things, and our day at the farm was a nice trip away from the craziness of Los Angeles and reminding me of home! Plus, I ate some delicious pumpkin pie! And the icing on top of the day was stopping at a soda and candy shoppe on the drive back and finding Cheerwine! (Which is made on the east coast and hard to find elsewhere in the States!)
