Football. Hayrides. And of course, pumpkin picking. Although you don’t need much more than a light jacket for fall in Southern California, it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy all the season’s activities. Check out these pumpkin patches in the San Diego area and conveniently close to Weston’s new master-planned community.
El Cajon Pumpkin Station
Just a short drive from Weston is the El Cajon Pumpkin Station at Parkway Plaza. Toddlers and younger kiddos can enjoy the El Paso train ride and play center while older children can check out the Ferris wheel, giant slide and carnival games. But with all the fun to be had, don’t forget to pick out your pumpkin!

Mountain Valley Ranch
Not only can you pick up pumpkins, gourds and Indian corn here, you can also fire off the ranch’s corn cannon onto targets like tractor tires. Or say hello to your farm friends at the petting zoo and take a pony ride. And if you’re feeling adventurous, try the corn maze! It’s open seven days a week.

Oma’s Pumpkin Patch
This Lakeside dairy farm doesn’t just provide a slice of country life, it also has tons of activities for different age groups. The whole family will love the pet corral and taking a tractor-drawn hayride. Kids can also enjoy sliding down Cottonseed Mountain, a hay bale maze, playscapes and racing each other on a tricycle race track.

Summers Past Farms
Tucked around the lush greens of Summers Past Farms, you can grab a wheelbarrow and find your favorite pumpkin. While you’re there, pick up seeds for perennials and spring blossoms like wildflowers, dill and cilantro that you can sow now, or pick out native plants from the nursery. You can also do some early holiday shopping at the farm’s gift shop offering essential oils, homemade soaps and other goodies.
