Forneris Farms Harvest Festival Starts This Weekend!

Since it is already October, Halloween will be here before you know it. That means it is time to go and pick-your-own pumpkin. Instead of going to that parking lot pumpkin patch next to your supermarket, why not go to a real farm and have a great day of fun and support a great local LA farmer?  

Yep, a "real" LA farmer, imagine that! Forneris Farms is one of only two "traditional" farms left in the San Fernando Valley---John Forneris has been farming in Mission Hills for the past 45 years!

Not only can you pick-your-own pumpkin, but during Harvest Festival time there's great activities for the whole family including a tractor-pulled train ride, a "farm frolic" area with kid's games, farm animals, antique tractors and cars, and on weekends there's food and entertainment. They also have an awesome corn maze with over 4 acres of turns to get lost in. And, of course their farm market is always open and features farm fresh produce year-round.

Follow them on Twitter and like them on Facebook

Let's show John and Barbara that we support them and appreciate that they are here providing us with locally, grown, farm fresh produce and a great on-farm experience for the whole family!
