As an outdoor activity, Central Coast pumpkin patches are able to welcome visitors over the next month.
Jennifer Bennett, an Atascadero mother of two, was one of the first customers at Avila Valley Barn Monday morning.
“I’m a stay-at-home mom," Bennett said. "Being home with these two all the time has been really hard without being able to take them to do anything.”
She’s excited the pumpkin patch—along with the goats, cows and chickens to visit and feed—are open.
