Dell'Osso Farm - A Halloween Cornucipia

Updated on October 17, 2014

The Fantabulous Dell'Osso Family Farm

I LOVE Dell'Osso Farm! Our famiy looks forward to visiting the Farm every year, and every year it gets bigger and better!

Dell'Osso Farm was founded in the 1920's by three brothers from Italy who started farming asparagus. Rudy Dell'Osso, the son of one the original brothers, took over the farm in the 1950's and diversified into growing tomatoes, beans and alfalfa. In the mid 1970's, Ron Dell'Osso, Rudy's son, joined the business and added pumpkins, melons and sweet corn to the crop rotation.

In 1997, Ron and his wife Susan, started the first Corn Maze and the Halloween event has grown into a Haunted House, Pumpkin Blaster and much more. The Dell'Osso Family Farm October event has grown into one of the most popular Halloween season destinations in the nation, with close to 125,000 people visiting the site each October. The event still remains a family operation, with the entire Dell'Osso family participating.

Check out the Del'Osso Farm website at:


Pumpkin Blaster

Shoots mini pumpkins at targets in the field. The pumpkins travel at 90 miles per hour. You load it, aim and try to shoot a mini-pumpkin through the opening of the targets. It is open to all and the mini-pumpkins are included in the price of the Pumpkin Blaster attraction.

This unusual and awesome feature is way more fun than you can imagine. Kids and adults will both want to try their hand at hitting targets. Even the sound the blasters make is sure to get your blood pumping.

U-Pick Pumpkin Patch

For that very special jack-o-lantern you can pick your own pumpkin right from the vine.

Dell'Osso Farms has the biggest pumpkin patch I've ever seen. If you can't find the pumpkin of your dreams here, honey it ain't out there! From big to small, they've got 'em all.


Haunted House

This animated haunted house is here to add to your fun and enjoyment. Wear 3-D glasses & see what spooks are around the corner!

I'm an adult, you say. Haunted houses are just for kids, you say. I've seen 'em all, you say. You're wrong! DEAD Wrong, in fact. This fantastically scary haunted house is something special, even for the most experienced visitor. Don't miss it!

A Must-Have for any Halloween Party!


Gem Mining

For the young and young at heart. Guaranteed to take home your own gem treasure!

Where else but California could you mine for gems at the pumpkin patch? Well, here in the beautiful San Joaquin Valley you can do just that. Some folks forget that this location is just a hop, skip and a jump from the Sierra Foothills where mining is the theme of the day. you feel lucky today?
