Goodbye September

Fall is officially here!

For my family fall is our favorite season and we welcomed October by visiting the Bishop’s Pumpkin Farm in Wheatland California.

If you live in or near Placer county, you should be very familiar with this pumpkin farm, they’ve been inviting locals to come and enjoy their farm since 1973. The Bishop Family is very passionate about what they do and it shows. This Farm is exactly the place I like to go to get some fall inspiration.

This is THE place to get your pumpkins, from half a pound to two hundred pounds. And they’re not just orange, they have red ones, white ones, and even blue ones.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These are the pumpkins we took home. The farm provides these blue carts for you to haul your pumpkins to your car. It makes life so much easier!

My son Blake was so excited to help push the cart around.

 

 

 

This year there were a few new attractions and additions to the farm…

The harvest barn & antique tractors

This area is an attraction in itself. we spent a good hour picking out the perfect pumpkins while exploring and climbing on the antique tractors and trucks. If you want the perfect Autumn backdrop to your family photos, this is where you want to take them.

 

 

 

 

 

The new Harvest Barn is just beautiful and filled with lots of fall decor!

 

 

 

 

 

movie night & campfires at the farm

Wow, what a special way to spend time with your family. I cant tell you the excitement my boys had when they saw the Bishop’s Pumpkin Farm Train passing by as we approached the outdoor movie theater in the jumbo pumpkin patch.

My little Wyatt is so excited to ride the train.
our view of the outdoor movie from the train.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The campfires make the whole experience come alive. This is a very popular new attraction, the campfire area is by reservation only. They announce the movies online in early August and the Saturday campfires immediately sell out. But don’t despair! Just bring a comfy chair or blanket and steak out a spot among the giant pumpkins in the field. That’s exactly what we did! and it was perfect. 🙂

It’s places like this that make the seasons in our lives so memorable. I feel so fortunate to live in a place where this is the expected. The Bishop Family have created something truly special to share with the local people in and around their small little town of Wheatland. My kids will grow up sharing these memories with us and I hope that you and your family take an opportunity to experience this sweet little farm and create special memories in this season of your lives.

There are so many different events and attractions going on during the fall months at the farm there’s no way I could fit it all into one blog post.
