Team Gibson has been going to the Peltzer Pumpkin Farm since 1999 when it was in Orange , California. When we moved to Temecula we missed our familiar friendly Pumpkin Patch. However, we soon heard that the Peltzers would be joining the Gibsons in the beautiful wine valley of Temecula. Here is their story from their website. If you follow our blog you already know ours.
"Welcome to the Peltzer Pumpkin Farm. Fourth generation farmer, Charlie Peltzer, and his wife Carrie began the first Peltzer Pumpkin Farm in Orange County in 1996. Ten years later they moved to the beautiful Temecula wine country to grow their farm and family. This year Peltzer Pumpkin Farm celebrates its 9th pumpkin harvest in the Temecula Valley where they're proud to continue their family’s farming tradition, which began in 1913 on a small twenty acre farm in Anaheim. Forty years later, that small family farm was sold to a man named Walt Disney to become part of what is now known as Disneyland.
The Peltzer family continued to farm throughout Orange County, where a number of their christmas tree farms still grow today. Expanding on their love of family fun, Peltzer Pumpkin Farm now offers gold mining, pig races, pony rides, a petting zoo, and more to make picking out your Fall pumpkins a great family experience. They are thrilled to continue a long history of farming and thank you for supporting your local farmer."
Since Peltzer's has joined the Temecula Wine Valley we have also joined their wine club at their attached winery. If you missed that blog post please click here
