Here’s a park I didn’t know existed until I had to drag the kids to a doctor’s appointment with me…
You’re visiting the picturesque wine country on California’s Central Coast. Let me set the scene for you:
Clear blue skies give a stunning backdrop to rolling hills dotted with twisty oaks and row after row of vineyard grapes.
You have your sunhat on and your fall outfit is on point. It’s a good day. You can’t wait to clink to the future with the hubby and do some much-needed wine tasting.
You have your kids with you. Who get bored. Easily.
What do you do?
Enter the magic of the kid-friendly winery.
Open year-round, Jack Creek is working farm. Run by the Barlogio family, these sweet folks have put decades of work into their land. Where else can you find a family-owned establishment where the fam treks out to the fields to handpick the best three tomatoes for an elderly neighbor who just called in a pickup? Adorable! Jack Creek Farms features true, homegrown service.
Next up in our series of pumpkin patches is the truly wonderful Jack Creek Farms in Templeton, California. It’s open year-round and they’ve put a lot of time and effort into making their farm kid-friendly, including fenced-in play areas and a thoughtful layout that includes a large picnic table spot.
