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
