River K Pumpkin Patch celebrates 50 years 

–River K Pumpkin Patch on North River Road in Paso Robles is celebrating it’s 50th Anniversary.

The pumpkin patch started back in 1969 by Valerie Reynolds and her brother as a 4-H project in Goleta. Later, Herb Kunze bought land on North River Road and the pumpkin migrated north.

Valerie says the tradition is the same today. People come out and pick a pumpkin off the vines. There are no bounce houses or commercial distractions, although they do have a three-acre corn maze, which is challenging after dark.

Valerie’s retriever, Dixie, enjoys meeting the families who come and get pumpkins. She says some families have returned for generations.
