Annual Trip to Bishop’s Pumpkin Farm

Wheatland, CA –  You do not have to look any farther than your local pumpkin patch or farm to realize that Halloween is gaining in popularity.

Since 2003, our crack research and trend analysis team has ventured to the Bishop’s Pumpkin Farm in Wheatland, CA to assess the health of the holiday.  We are delighted to report that Halloween is in good spirits and doing well.

For you history buffs, Wheatland became the base camp for the Donner Party survivors after they finally crossed the Sierra Nevada Mountains, but of course they became infamous for eating more than Wheatland’s legendary pumpkins.

Anyway, rather than our usual snarky observations and bizarre factoids, we’ll try something new, and merely post some images of our fun-filled outing. 

Should you find yourself in the greater Sacramento region during the Halloween season, we encourage you to include a visit to Bishop’s Pumpkin Farm as part of your short list of things to do while you are here. For more information, check out their web site: Bishop’s Pumpkin Farm

      Thanks! I am no photographer, you’re seeing what I thought were the best of over 100 images. I also learned long time ago that pictures come out better when I stay out from being in front of them as well.

    Super-fun site! My mythology students will definitely have to hop over here while researching Halloween in the next couple of weeks!

      Thank you! Your mythology students are always welcome here, but what is really needed is an English student who can catch my numerous errors and who is a ruthless editor. Of course, proof reading my blog is not without its perks, my posts have been known to cure insomnia!
