It is the start of October and Fall is here! As many of my Hello Kitty Foodies know this is the start of my favorite pumpkin season! This year I got to kick off the start of Fall and pumpkin season with two of my favorites; pumpkins and Hello Kitty at Tanaka Farms!
Two years ago on this blog I shared the start of the collaboration between Sanrio and Tanaka Farms in Irvine. Since then the collaboration has brought Hello Kitty enthusiasts to Orange County. At the farm; guests can enjoy a wagon ride around the 30 acre farm that features several wonderful photo ops with Hello Kitty and her friends!
My Melody welcomes visitors to the sweet strawberry fields.
Hello Kitty welcomes guests to enjoy a sunshine filled day where the sunflowers grow!
There’s a U-Pick veggie garden where one can pick seasonal veggies such as radishes! Hello Kitty loves being healthy and picking fresh vegetables!
There’s a giant corn maze where one can see stalks of corn. Hello Kitty is excited to see if you can figure out the maze!
During pumpkin season can see pumpkins of all sizes! Among the pumpkins one can see Cinderella pumpkins, Fairytale pumpkins, Porcelain Doll pumpkins, Jarrandale pumpkins and Polar Bear pumpkins!
The Fall Harvest Festival at Tanaka Farms is every weekend from September 21-October 31. Say “Hello” to Tanaka Farms and you are sure to “Fall” in love with the annual pumpkin patch featuring Hello Kitty and Sanrio friends!
April is in full swing and Hello Kitty is having lots of fun this fourth month of the year! She has some very special treats this month for every one! This Hello Kitty Foodie blog post is all about all the supercute collaborations that are sure to bring sweetness to your April.

I love the season of Fall! Fall brings us the wonderful color changes of the leaves, crisp, cool weather and my favorite pumpkin season. I am therefore so excited that for this first week of Fall, a very special collaboration between Sanrio and Tanaka farms will be launching!
The Irvine based farm Tanaka Farms and Sanrio are coming together for a year-long partnership where Hello Kitty and her friends; Chococat, My Melody, Keroppi, and Pochacco, will become ambassadors to the farm. Our favorite Sanrio friends will be play a special role in the educational programming provided by Tanaka Farms and visitors will learn the importance of healthy eating, as well as sustainability, responsible farming and agriculture. Best of all they can do this all while supporting their local community.
The collaboration kicks off with the super cute Tanaka Farms’ Pumpkin Patch this September 30. There will be lots fun all around the farm such a corn maze, a “U-Pick Veggie” garden and super cute photo ops around the farm with Hello Kitty, Keroppi, Chococat, My Melody and Pochacco. Then on October 28, there will even be a super cute Halloween Sanrio costume contest!
The fun doesn’t stop however with the pumpkin patch because there will be many seasonal celebrations throughout the year! During the holiday season, there will be a Christmas Tree Farm. Next spring there will be strawberry picking and next summer there will be a melon celebration! Hello Kitty fun in the farm through all the seasons is in store for us!
There will also be a limited edition collection of commemorative Sanrio ♥ Tanaka Farms merchandise that will also be available for purchase at the Farm’s Market Stand.
The Sanrio and Tanaka Farms is one very special partnership. It is educational and promotes healthy eating and awareness. Thank you to Sanrio and Tanaka Farms for bringing another wonderful thing for us Hello Kitty Foodies to look forward to this Fall and beyond.
