This is an excellent place to take kids especially around Thanksgiving for the pumpkin patch. There are hundreds of the orange and white squash to choose from and you can cut your own or select from ones still on the vine. They have a carnival like atmosphere with food, hay rides, music and other activities for the kids. The store offers huge varieties of nuts, fruit, jams, honey and nick knacks that will always bring a smile to your face. This place has a nostalgic feel to it and its a nice escape from the city with just a short drive.

We used to take our kids and some neighbor kids there all the time. We really loved the place, but then it was on the way more or less to Palomar Mountain and living in Oceanside it wasn't very far. The kids loved the animals as well as us adults. The malted malt balls and the chocolate coconut haystacks in the candy department was the best. We really everything they have to offer, especially the fiar type activities and car shows. We now live in Kansas ans really wish we had someplace even of that calibar here close enough to go to. But the cost of living here is so much more affordable. But even so I really miss the chocolate hay stacks.

I try to take my kids to Bates a couple times a year. They love visiting the animals, and I love doing a little shopping in the stores.
The staff is great - except a couple of times there are young ladies working in the stores, mostly where the chocolates are in the back, they seem to have an attitude problem. I've got the impression that they seem to think they are "better than thou" As if it was a chore to help their customers who keep the place in business. Bates needs to have adults work there, or at least MATURE young adults.

I absolutely fell in love with this quaint little place. This is the way I remember celebrating Autumn, Halloween,etc. as a child. With society loosing its grip on traditions, this is just what the doctor ordered! I loved this place.

PROS: Hay Rides, Pony Rides, 1000s of pumpkins.
CONS: It isn't in my town! Shucks.

Great place! Fun for the kids, and yummy for the grown ups. Great nuts, fun seasonal shopping, and a decent amount of animals for the kids to feed. Corn mix is only 30 cents for the animals.

If you know a nut lover you will love Bates Nut Farm. They have every type of nut imaginable. The staff is super friendly and really knowledgable. They offer free samples so you know you are getting something that tastes wonderful. The prices are very good. It is a great place to find Holiday gifts for that nut lover on your list.

I love Bates, and it's become a Halloween tradition for us to go there to pick out pumpkins. They have a craft store and occasionally they have craft fairs on the weekend. They also have a store that sells nuts, of course, as well as other goodies. I've also been there when they've had live music and activities for kids. I'd highly recommend it.

This is a wonderful country farmer's market. They have a great country store and well as animals. I take my family to this farm during Halloween as well as Christmas. They decorate it for the holidays, have lots of activities for the kids and shopping for the adults.

Bates Nut Farm offers visitors a tempting array of nuts, fruits, candies, packaged delicacies and locally grown produce. Facilities include shaded picnic grounds, a gift shop and farm-animal petting corrals for children.

The farm also sells an abundant selection of pumpkins in October and Christmas trees in December.

A wonderful place to visit, especially during the holiday months.

I spent weeks last Halloween trying to find a decent pumpkin patch before I heard about Bates. The drive was well worth it. In addition to a large holiday store full of Christmas, Halloween, and pretty much any other holiday's decorations they could think of, the farm has a large selection of local jellies, honey, and other farm products (in addition to their own nuts). They also offer craft and art shows throughout the fall, in addition to their normal business. And of course, a pick-your-own-pumpkin patch, which is excellent. Well worth the trip.
