Muelrath Ranches, established in 1936 as a dairy in Bodega Bay, is a real working ranch. We added the Santa Rosa location in 1946, where I still farm today growing pumpkins, gourds, winter squash and sunflowers. We also raise cattle and grow hay and silage. We strive to produce high quality, freshly picked products that are grown on site, sustainably farmed and are pesticide free. Our products are available for both retail and wholesale purchase.
Our Pumpkin Patch is unique both for the quality of our pumpkins and the size of our patch. Our unique pumpkin stems, colors, and varieties are our trademark. Our patch offers great family fun: come climb a haystack, traverse the hay tunnel to a dungeon that contains silly and spooky things, follow the maze through tall cornstalks, enjoy a hay ride, or test your aim with our “pumpkin slingshot”.
Join us for “Friday and Saturday Night in the Pumpkin Patch” every Friday and Saturday from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. through the month of October. Enjoy our “Campfire in the Corral” – roast a hot dog or marshmallows, have some hot cider and cookies, and take a night time hay ride. Space is limited so please call ahead for reservations.
