I don’t know about you, but I am looking for any excuse to bring Rooney with us to pick up pumpkins this year, but there aren’t many options in the Bay Area and many of the websites don’t indicate whether or not they are pet-friendly.
Therefore, I thought it would be nice to share with my fellow Bay Area readers the dog-friendly pumpkin patches in the Bay Area:
Best for Small Dogs
Clancy’s Pumpkin Patch, San Francisco: This adorable pumpkin patch is located in the Forest Knolls district in San Francisco. Pets are welcome, but they must be in your arms while on the lot.
For All Pets
Farmer John’s Pumpkin Farm, Half Moon Bay: Farmer John’s site doesn’t explicitly say they are dog-friendly (at least I couldn’t find anything), so I sent them a Facebook message to find out for myself. Not only are they dog-friendly, but I was informed that are very pet-friendly:
We even have a few people bring their cats…and a couple parrot owners too!
So no matter what kind of animal you have, you can bring the whole family to visit Farmer John!
For the Dogs
Moore’s Pumpkin Patch & Christmas Trees, Dublin: This pumpkin patch has been in operation for over 30 years! They offer complimentary use of their wagons for picking out pumpkins and they offer free parking! On-leash, family-friendly dogs are welcome!
If You Want to Drive Outside the Bay Area
Cool Patch Pumpkins, Dixon: I went to school in nearby Davis. Although I never had an opportunity to visit this pumpkin patch, it was very well-known in the area. This awesome pumpkin patch is outside the Bay Area (close to Sacramento), but welcomes on-leash dogs to help pick out your pumpkins!
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any more. I called several and Facebook messaged a few. Because many of these locations sell produce, they are limited to the animals they can invite on their farms.
