🍓The Sweet Berry Farm 🍓


Spring is in full force in the Texas Hill Country – the weather is beautiful and the highways are decked out in bluebonnets and other wildflowers. It’s the perfect time to get outside and enjoy some sunshine with the family (before the sweltering summer temperatures sneak in)! My husband and I love to be outdoors – and as a surprise he drove us out to Marble Falls to Sweet Berry Farm. Indeed, how sweet this place is! As soon as you drive in you see a huge field with rows and rows of strawberries ripe for the picking. A sweet lady at the information booth handed us a big box and gave us the rundown…then we got to pickin’!

And here we are with our berries

I thought there was no way we could find enough good berries to fill that box – I was wrong! We had around 7 lbs of strawberries within 30 minutes (note – it was a Thursday afternoon). What do you do with all those strawberries, you ask? Make strawberry jam! (Or, whatever your favorite strawberry recipe might be) We spent the rest of the afternoon doing another one of my favorite things – cooking and spending time with my husband.


                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                   

            

The farm had several other fun activities to keep kids of all ages busy for a whole afternoon – you can bet they’ll be tuckered out on the drive home. They have a berry bounce pad, the sweet berry express train ride, sand art station, paint-a-pot station, goats you can feed, picnic tables to enjoy lunch (bring your own or buy from their and homemade treats (more available on the weekend). They only take cash or check, so be sure to plan accordingly. If for some reason you forget, they do have an ATM.

If you’re hoping for strawberries, they’re in season until mid May so you still have time! If strawberries don’t excite you, wait a little longer for something else to pick:


Strawberries: March to mid May

Blackberries: mid May

New Potatoes: May

Peaches: May

Onions: late April and May


As you plan your visit, be sure to check out their website and Facebook page. Read their FAQs ahead of time and continue to check leading up to your visit, as they post "fresh news" regularly.


On a side note, I’m in no way getting compensated by the farm for this post – my hope is that my clients and potential clients will either read about something new and fun, read something informative about real estate, or just get to know me a little bit better. Either way, I hope you enjoy and come back to visit my blog! Stay tuned for other fun places to visit....


P.S. If you want the strawberry jam recipe, feel free to message me from my Facebook page! You can also give me a like so you see when I post a new blog
