Our visit to G & M Farms Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze in Livermore

G & M Farms is everything you’d ever want in a pumpkin patch: all the Fall colors; old-timey cute touches (think sunflowers planted in old bathtubs); and it feels family-run. Their big attraction is a cornfield maze. Six acres of corn maze with twist and turns that from above creates a scene that changes yearly. This year’s corn maze is a celebration of Wizard of Oz.

The pumpkin patch portion of G & M Farms couldn’t be cuter. Grab a red Radio Flyer wagon and pick from rows of perfectly placed round pumpkins. Though they aren’t grown on site, I appreciate the fact that you’re picking in grass. Each pumpkin, no matter the size, is $8 and comes with a cute decorative gourd. My boys each picked one and I didn’t even have to swap them out for prettier ones – now that’s a good patch.

Once you’ve picked your pumpkin, the real fun begins. Ride the cow train through a corn maze, hop on a pony, drive the pedal carts, roll around in the corn pit (my boys’ favorite!) and get lost in the mini hay maze. There’s also farm animals to greet and a whole educational piece to explore. Lift tabs to find out if pigs are smart? Do pigs sweat? If goats eat anything? You’ll have to go to find out.
