Field trip: Farm day in Brentwood

Sarah, a mother to two in Temescal, always takes her kids to do the best stuff. She describes a recent outing to Smith Family Farms:

I took the kids to an awesome pick your own farm (apples, pomegranates, tomatoes, eggplants, peppers, persimmons, and a few peaches left – everything is $1/pound and you can just mix and match as much as you want) and pumpkin patch out in Brentwood yesterday that I’d totally recommend.

Smith Valley Farm and other pumpkin patches for Bay Area kids

There was a little farm of animals, a “barn show” of singing, and tractor rides out into the field to pick your own pumpkins. It was $9 admission, which included a pumpkin. There’s a little hay tunnel and corn field maze. It’s all very low-key, nothing too grand or fancy, no jumpy houses. Yes, it was a bit of a drive, but it was really great and we spent FOUR hours there!

Editor’s Note: Bring your grocery totes to carry pumpkins you choose from the patch.
