From Halloween jack-o-lanterns, to interesting gourds and delicious winter squash, the fall tradition of loading a wagon full of pumpkins is alive and well in Turlock, thanks to R.A.M. Farms. Pumpkins of all shapes and sizes greet visitors to the R.A.M. Farms patch. The farm has over 40 varieties to choose from, and families can either pick their own or choose from a pre-picked selection.
