Three Nunns Pumpkin Patch Has Tractors, U-Pick & Massive Corn Mazes for Acres of Fun

Three Nunns Pumpkin Patch open September 23 – October 31, 9 am to 6 pm daily

By mid-September, we kicked off our pumpkin patch visiting season this year at Three Nunns Farm in Brentwood. The drive took us under an hour from Oakland on a Saturday morning. The venue is easy to find with signs indicating exactly where to enter, park, and exit.

Three Nunns will be open daily from 9 am to 6 pm for U-Pick pumpkins, pomegranates, tomatoes, flowers, and lots more at the farm stand. Bring your camera – the setting is photogenic!

We were warmly greeted upon arrival with very friendly staff giving us a preview of what to expect. We paid $12 per person and immediately hopped on a tractor that took us through the orchards and onto the farm. The ride is slow and pleasant, but slightly bumpy. Nonetheless, it was not loud, which made it easy to point things out to the kids (or remind them to sit down when they tried touching the plants) without having to shout.

Once we got out to the 40-acre farm, it was obvious we were going to be around for a while. Pumpkins are everywhere! I was surprised my children chose the gourds over playtime. You can pick from the stacks placed around the fields or directly from the vine. Our wagon filled up pretty quickly!

There are cute setups for children to explore, and plenty of photo ops around the premise as well. Kids can climb inside and on top of haystacks, enjoy a small slide, and experience two different corn mazes – one with a more challenging path. We did appreciate the easier corn trail since we couldn’t make it to the larger corn maze, more so because of our fussy two year old (enough said). But we still had a blast discovering an endless array of orange, green, and even black pumpkins!

Pro Tips for Three Nunns Farm

  • Bring hats and sunscreen for adults and kids – lots of sunshine and very little shade (hats are sold onsite as well).
  • Wear closed-toe, comfortable shoes since you’ll be on dirt and mounds the entire time.
  • Wagons are available. The owner did advise families to bring their own as they may run short. (The wagons really come in handy for transporting your gourds, belongings, and children.)
  • Both corn mazes are wagon and stroller-friendly if children refuse to walk, but it still requires some extra strength to pull and push through dirt and corn husks.
  • Tractors have space to store strollers, wagons, and all the pumpkins you pick.
  • The field is very large and spaced out well

In addition to the very helpful staff around the farm, my favorite part about Three Nunns is the unique selection of gourds (we even picked cantaloupe!). My children were so excited to see the different colors, shapes, and sizes. And the prices are really reasonable. They weigh all your produce so you can rest assured it’s fair pricing (we’ve gone to other patches where the price is based on a stare-down of the pumpkin).

Pumpkin Patch & Corn Maze Grand Open September 23

The Nunn family has been farming in Brentwood for more than 150 years. Find the Three Nunns Pumpkin Patch and giant corn maze at 550 Walnut Blvd in Brentwood. This fall, they are excited to offer two corn mazes, one for beginners and little ones, and a second more advanced, 5-acre maze for the brave and experienced. You’ll also find a lot of room to run around and get dirty at the farm while you and your children pick 40 specialty pumpkin varieties right from the vines.
