If you miss the annual pumpkin patch at the famous Lombardi Ranch, we are happy to announce a new venue at the Gilchrist Farm Harvest Festival and Pumpkin Patch! The new Gilchrist Farm Harvest Festival is located here in Santa Clarita just up Bouquet Canyon and nearby the old Lombardi Ranch location. See below for a map and directions.
Santa Clarita has a New Family Owned Ranch in Town
The Harvest Festival and Pumpkin Patch will take place from October 1st through October 31st, every day from 9am-6pm. Enjoy fun filled activities on the weekends including Horse Drawn Wagon Rides, Pony Rides, Face Painting, Pumpkin Decorating, Fall Farm Crafts, Live Entertainment, Fundraiser Bake Sale, Caramel Apples, Kettle Corn, Petting Zoo and more!
Gilchrist Update for October Harvest 2017
Once again Gilchrist will be offering plenty of fun and entertainment from 10/1/17 - 10/31/17. According to the Gilchrist website there will be Pig Races each weekend and attendance is FREE! Also, we heard... this year the kids will get to try their hand at milking the goats! There is also a straw bale maze, straw slides and it sounds like our Santa Clarita kids are going to have a BLAST!
One thing for sure, there's plenty of great fun to be had, so don't miss this month long event, only at Gilchrist Farms!
Gilchrist Replaces the Lombardi Ranch Festival
2015 was the first Fall season without Lombardi Ranch and it was heartbreaking for many Santa Clarita local children and adults alike. We looked forward to the live music and participating in the many events, especially the annual scarecrow contest. Although Gilchrist will NOT be hosting a Scarecrow Contest, they have many other activities and one of the favorites is sure to be the pumpkin decorating contests! Also, the children will love getting up close to the farm animals at the Gilchrist petting zoo.
Gilchrist Farm Country Store
While visiting the festival you'll also be able to buy farm fresh chicken or duck eggs, or other unique items such as hand made goat's milk soap, peacock feathers and fresh or frozen goat's milk for crafting or animal use. If you stop by on Saturday mornings at 9:00am you can watch the Goat milking demonstrations. That might not sound all that interesting for country folk, but us city slickers might find it quite fascinating.
