Arata’s Pumpkin Farm


By on Sat, October 29, 2011

Hi, I volunteer at Arata’s Pumpkin Farm Monday through Friday. I do a 10 to 15 minute educational presentation for the dozens of school groups ( pre-k to 5th.) that visit this facility. Mr. John Ullom, of Half Moon bay and San Gregorio, sees fit to bash one of the few places in the Bay Area and on the coast side that allow children to run as fast as they want, yell their heads off and have hay fights, while enjoying the fresh ocean air and sunshine.

I challenge Mr. Ullom to pay us a vist in order to see, first hand, that Chris Gounalakis and his family have operated this rare place that children and school groups have enjoyed for twenty plus years. I realize you are an older man John, so am I but I still have the ability to channel my inner child in order to educate these children who are very grateful that Arata’s Pumpkin Farm exists. As for your comments about my friend Bob Limos not producing any agriculture on his farm; the Christmas trees he raises and sells ARE agriculture.

Come on down to Aratas next Tuesday and see for yourself the joy that Chris and Suneva provide for visitors from far and near; or do you just base all your spicy comments on what you read in the local papers?
