The history of pumpkin farming on the Mar Vista property began in 1967 when Charlie Lopez, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Lopez, made the decision to do so. The sole native Angeleno-owned pumpkin patch in the Venice region is Lopez Ranch, which opened as the first pumpkin farm in California. Since its creation in 1968, the “Big Pumpkin” has become a Halloween ritual for many future generations.
