    They have everything from hot sauce to candles. I love coming up here during the holiday season. Especially Halloween, just before Thanksgiving and just any time in December.

    Best place in SD county for Halloween period! Kids love it. Pumpkins are a bit expensive but well worth the drive.

    If you're buying quesadillas here, be warned that they're corn tortilla quesadillas. Flour tortillas are better.

    Get there early. After ten there is a line of cars just to get into the parking lot.

    Grab a wheel barrel on the parking lot on your way to pick your pumpkins!

    Check the weather so you can dress appropriately. Also, be prepared to wait in a line of cars at least a 1/2 mile from the entrance on the weekends in October.

    Weekends are always packed during pumpkin season. Grab the first wheelbarrow you see in the parking lot, because there are usually none left at the entrance. Make it a family day trip, bring a picnic!
