What you’ll find at Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch
Oregon Farmers Becky and David Campbell started Mr. Bones in Westwood in 1987 so city kids could experience the fun of a traditional pumpkin patch. It’s moved around from Beverly Hills to West Hollywood to its now-permanent home in Culver City.
Pumpkins are prices by weight and “start at $1 and go all the way up to $600 (you’ll need a forklift, though).” Mr. Bones offers any kind of pumpkin you can imagine from traditional bright orange to beautiful green pumpkins to organic pumpkins. All of the Pumpkins are priced by weight so might think twice about buying a 50 pound pumpkin.
Shopping for pumpkins is just part of the fun. Mr. Bones is also known for being a popular spot for celebrities and their kids and includes a VIP area for them. (My first celebrity sighting after moving to LA was Harrison Ford at Mr. Bones!).
There’s also a boo-tique filled with Halloween favorites, the tipi village, pumpkin decorating, a VIP area, and incredible activities for all ages. On weekends, visitors will find food trucks and live entertainment to create magical memories for the whole family.
Families are encouraged to dress up in costume, bring their leashed dog and get their faces painted. Kids can roll around in the hay, check out the animals in the petting zoo and slide down Mr. Bones Super Slide. Kids can also explore Mr. Bones’ neighborhood, the Pumpkin Village, and stroll though pumpkin made houses, or enjoy the petting Zoo and pony rides.
