We are a family farm located in urban Reno. Our farm was purchased in 1913 by Dominico and Caterina Ferrari. They were hard workers going from sun up til sun down tilling and working their ground. On November 11, 1920 in their small two-bedroom farmhouse, they had their only son, Frank Sr. He followed in his parents’ footsteps farming the land, dealing with droughts, floods and everything in between. In 1971, Frank married Joanne, a woman who lived across the street from the farm, and less than a year later they had their only child, a son, Frank Jr. Like father, like son – Frank Jr. carried on the family farm working closely with his father. Over the years they grew many crops including corn, potatoes, onions, squash, and of course, what we are best known for today, PUMPKINS! The produce was harvested and sold to local markets. In 1997, the family decided to set up a small pumpkin patch so that they could share their farm with the local community. As the years went by, the patch grew and new activities were introduced.
Today we have a large corn maze, hayrides, a mechanical bull, fire pits, paintball zombie hunt, bounce house, corn walk, BBQ and over 40 varieties of pumpkins, squash and gourds. We host field trips, birthday parties, graduation parties, corporate events and other group gatherings.
Oh, if Dominico and Caterina could only see what they created when they bought that beautiful little farm along the Truckee River in 1913! We’re sure they would be proud of all the joy and happiness that all of our visitors experience every year because of their hard work and dedication.
