Underwood Family Farm hosts families and children at their annual fall festival

MOORPARK, Calif. (KABC) -- Surrounded by a 50-acre field of squash and pumpkins, families and children are enjoying the 20th annual Fall Harvest Festival at Underwood Family Farm.

Owner Craig Underwood invites local children from more than 41 schools every year come and learn about agriculture and nutrition.

"We hope that they connect with the farm, get to know us, know that we are local and learn about how to pick fruits and vegetables because when they come and pick their own, they are more likely to eat them," Underwood said.
