It’s that time of the year where just about every product at your local grocery store is now pumpkin spiced. But nothing says fall like vibrant pumpkins on a haystack with the mountain in the background! If you’re looking to find the perfect pumpkin patch this season then look no further because it’s located right in the heart of the OC, Tanaka Farms.
Tanaka Farms, family operated since 1940, is located at 5380 ¾ University Dr, Irvine, CA 92612. If you’re looking for somewhere to take your date, have a family fun day, or to get in the spirit of the new season, then this is the perfect place! Tanaka farms offer a huge pumpkin patch for you to find the perfect pumpkin, big or small. There’s a small admission fee of $3 per person and it includes the corn maze! And yes, you can take all the pictures you want! In addition this year, Sanrio and Hello Kitty will be at the Farm on Saturday, October 28th as part of special Halloween celebration!
Come dressed as your favorite Sanrio character…Hello Kitty? Chococat? Keroppi? Gudetama? Bring out your inner cuteness!
There’s more to do than just picking out a pumpkin at Tanaka Farms. You can also take a wagon ride around the farm for $6 or checkout the petting zoo for $3. If you want to be adventurous you can purchase the “Entry Package” for $10 and save $2. Tanaka Farms is opened everyday through October 31st from 9:00am-6:00pm. Make sure to get there and park before the gates close at 5:30pm. Parking can take awhile especially if you visit during the peak hours of 11:00am-3:00pm.
Hello Kitty and Sanrio friends will be incorporated into the educational programming provided by Tanaka Farms, teaching visitors of all ages the importance of healthy eating, as well as sustainability, responsible farming and agriculture, all while supporting their local community. Hello Kitty, Keroppi, Chococat, My Melody and Pochacco will be integrated into photo ops throughout the farm as well as daily activities and seasonal celebrations throughout the year. A limited edition collection of commemorative Sanrio ♥ Tanaka Farms merchandise will also be available for purchase at the Farm’s Market Stand.
