Picking pumpkins in the patch

Posted: Updated:

RAMONA (CBS 8) - It's a mad dash to the patch as hordes descend on the gourds at Mountain Valley Ranch in Ramona.

"We have a pumpkin patch… with thousands of pumpkins, different sizes and shapes," Dave Sullivan said.

When it comes to the perfect pumpkin, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Plundering the pumpkin patch isn't the only country comfort offered up by this friendly working farm.

"We have a corn maze, about three acres. Kids love that," Dave said.

Laughter and squeals are concealed in the towering stalks that meander through Mountain Valley Ranch.

No trip to the country would be complete without an animal encounter. At Mountain Valley Ranch, they put their goats on a pedestal, display their award-winning pigs and even feature Ramona's only indigenous animal -- the zebra -- making a trip to Mountain Valley Ranch a seasonal sensation.

    In 2006, the city of San Diego began allowing political campaigns to electronically file their financial reports, giving the public easy access to information on money in city politics. The county of San Diego wasn’t as quick to make the same kind of information available and continues to lag behind the city’s efforts.
