In 1967 Charlie Lopez, son of Mr. and Mrs. Lopez, decided to cultivate pumpkins on the Mar Vista property and the rest is history! Lopez Ranch was the first pumpkin patch in California and is the only native Angeleno-owned pumpkin patch in the Venice area. The “Big Pumpkin” was born in 1968 — this has become a Halloween tradition for generations and generations to come!
