We like to call our restrooms "farm bathrooms". As we are a farm that is ever changing, we shy against putting in facilities that would require permanent changes to the farm. We do our best to provide "farm restrooms" that are clean and user friendly and we thank you for your understanding.

7) Do you allow dogs on the farm?
We love well-behaved, socialized dogs, but please make sure to keep them on leashes and pick up after them. We ask that you please use a regular leash & leave retractable leashes at home or keep them locked in the shortest position. We reserve the right to ask any poorly behaved dog &/or owner to leave.

Fall Festival Questions

1) Do you have a pumpkin patch?
Since we are much more than a pumpkin patch, we do not tend to describe ourselves this way. However, we have acres and acres of pumpkins from which you can choose as well as gourds, squash and many unique pumpkin varieties. Due to limited space, many of our large pumpkins were grown on other areas of the farm and brought in to be selected. Our sugar babies were grown on-site, however we have cut many of the vines as they are extremely prickly and difficult for young hands to handle.

2) Do you have a corn maze?
Yes, we do have a corn maze. It is free with your paid admission to the Festival and is open 7-days a week. It is appropriate for all ages as it is not so large to be overwhelming.

3) We are interest in purchasing a large amount of pumpkins &/or cornstalks. How do go about this? Russell Blades, the manager of our Moorpark location, is in charge of pumpkin sales.
Please call him at (805) 529-3690.
