Pumpkin Patch, Ice Rink’s Stolen Food Trailer Recovered

David Fransen|

A food service trailer stolen from Turlock's R.A.M. Farms Pumpkin Patch, soon to host the city's first ice skating rink, has been recovered.

But it's in bad shape, Ron Macedo, owner of R.A.M. Farms Pumpkin Patch and the Fields of Ice skating rink, said.

“It turned back up, completely stripped-out,” Macedo said.

The 15-foot food and drink trailer was stolen between 5:30 and 9 p.m. Nov. 7 from the R.A.M. Farms Pumpkin Patch, 716 N. Daubenberger Rd. The trailer's value was estimated at $20,000, including equipment inside.

The trailer was found last week behind an abandoned home southwest of Turlock, Macedo said, hidden in a cornfield.

Snacks and sundries were sold from the trailer throughout the pumpkin patch's fall run, and the Macedos had planned to use the trailer at their upcoming Fields of Ice skating rink. Unfortunately, getting the trailer back in working order would take weeks or months – far more time than the Macedos have, given the ice skating rink's impending opening.

“I have rented another one that should be here Monday,” Macedo said.

The rented food service trailer will allow Fields of Ice to serve snacks and drinks during ice skating sessions, scheduled to start Friday.

That's right – the grand opening of Turlock's first ice skating rink is now less than a week away. Workers were on-site Friday, wrapping up construction of the temporary skating rink.

“We're getting really close now, so everyone's getting excited,” Macedo said.

    I would like to commend Ron Macedo for using executive privileges, using his position as board of directors for TID For forcing his way to the front of the line(Through string pulling and phone calls to the powers at be), and putting HIS needs FIRST before the needs of TID customers so that he may profit from his ice rink, People are out of power and the only thing you could do is think about yourself! Ron Macedo your shameless

    Wow!! A great activity for Turlock. Thank goodness there are citizens who will make an investment in their community to provide all of us something fun to do. If TID were a private corporation, it's board members would be receiving a whole lot more compensation than getting to "the front of the line". Although I'm not sure there is even evidence that happened, lest we remember they ARE running a billion dollar organization. And for much less of a wage than any one of its employees...without complaining...all because they care!!

    Carl, could I assume that if Ron is making this generous investment into our community for the good of the community, that the price of these "activities" are free?

    To any farmer waiting to have his pump service heated up by TID, Ron made a call to Mr. Hashimoto (GM of TID) and has his service heated up the very day it was tagged by the city inspector. Now if you want your service hookred up, you got pushed back a day by insider special privledges. FACT!

    Well…Ron is the President of TID.

  • PaulWatkins on How does a real estate agency work? "Hi Dans Andrew, I'm glad you have made the right decision because a real estate agency is a promising career. Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
  • paul on Why are customer reviews important during online shopping? "The most crucial component of every online store is its customer reviews.

According to Google's recently modified algorithm, a business can increase its performance by obtaining reviews.
