"Every fall, we embark on our annual visit to the Southern California’s famous pumpkin patch at Bates Nut Farm. What I love most about Bates is the Big Mac pumpkins and gourds are actually grown in the fields on site. So while I love all the farm activities taking place, what I look forward to most when I go to Bates is taking pictures in the fields surrounded by giant pumpkins. Of course, we also picnic, visit the farm animals, enjoy a hayride, shop at general store, and marvel at all the pumpkin and squash varieties. Then we go home and decorate the house for Halloween. It’s the perfect autumn day for my family."
