Kirtlin's Silverbend Pumpkin Patch

Pumpkin patch season is here and the Sacramento region has oh so many patches to choose from. We have been to many in the area from Bishop's up North in Wheaton to Fog Willow down down South in Wilton. But our favorite, our very favorite resides just across the river in Clarksburg, Kirtlin's Silverbend. This place has so much to offer including:
(This is taken straight from their website)

*Full size Train that goes around a 2 1/2 mile track
*Train Hold-ups
*Hay rides
*Blacksmith (Biscuits)
*Picnic Area
*Indian Village
*Pick your own pumpkin
*Temporary Tattoo Artist
*Antique Tractor Display

Why do we like this place the best? For me it comes down to 2, ok maybe 3 reasons.
1. The pumpkins are still on the vine. In order to get the TRUE pumpkin patch experience the pumpkins MUST still be on the vine!
2. The rustic feel. This place is located in beautiful Clarksburg. The minute you pass over the river on the old bridge you feel like you have passed into another world. Silverbend itself holds onto that feeling by staying very real and vintage. This place offers a lot but it is still a no frills kind of place.
3. Close proximity to Bogle wines. I know, I know this sounds kind of funny. But if you have never been to Bogle then this is the perfect time to stop on by. One of our favorite wineries and a great place for picnics.

As each of you head out to your favorite pumpkin patch this year I hope at least a few of you give Silverbend a try - but not TOO many of you because I want it to remain our little secret as well.
