Do you sell pumpkins?
Yes, they range from $1.00 - $20.00 each. We have Jack O' Lantern, Cinderella, White, Pie, and other specialty types depending on availability. We are sorry that we do not sell in bulk and are not able to deliver.
Do you grow the pumpkins?
No, we do not. We get them from a sweet family that has a farm near Lubbock. We tried to grow them ourselves and found that we are better blueberry farmers. :)
Are dogs allowed?
We love dogs, but some people are scared of them, so we're sorry, dogs other than service dogs, are not allowed.
Can we bring in food?
No, we're sorry, please do not bring in food and drinks. We have a concession stand with drinks, chips, homemade fudge and popsicles, candy, and hot dogs on the weekends.
Do you offer birthday parties?
UPDATE: We will not be offering parties in 2021
Can we use a stroller or a wheelchair or a wagon?
Yes! It is not paved here, however. We have hills, dirt, and rocks, but strollers and wheelchairs and wagons have been used successfully. Umbrella strollers are used by many, but it isn't easy.
Is it muddy after it rains?
Fortunately, we have good drainage here and lots of rock, so there is not a lot of mud after it rains. There can be some muddy spots but a majority is not muddy. We do recommend closed toe shoes rain or shine.
Do you have restrooms?
We do not, we have porta-potties and hand washing stations.
We are now closed for our 2021 Blueberry Season.
When is blueberry season?
We usually open the end of May through the beginning of July (typically 6 weeks). But each year is different depending on the winter and spring weather. We had a year when we lost 80% of our berries due to a late freeze and we had a year that didn't end until August 1st. The life of a farmer :)
The days and times we are open during our season depend upon the amount of ripe berries available to pick each day.
Where are you located, phone, and email?
1232 E Fork, Rockwall, TX
Why did you pick blueberries for your farm?
Our family loves blueberries and how healthy they are, so Chris, who grew up on a farm in South Dakota, decided to give it a try after much research.
Can we bring a stroller or a wagon?
Yes! Umbrella strollers are a little harder to get around with, but the other strollers do well.
Is this a good activity for our young children and grandparents?
Yes! We have families with babies to grandparents come to pick blueberries! The ground however is not paved, it is uneven and hilly.
We recommend bringing cooling items like fans, cold water, and cooling cloths.
Do you have baskets we can use?
We sell pails or we have bags for free, to pick into.
Do you allow pets?
We love our pets, but we are sorry, pets, are not allowed.
Why are your hours not consistent and posted week to week?
We are a small but growing farm. We are learning more every year. We watch the berries to determine what days and times to offer. We hope to be more consistent in the future.
Is it muddy after it rains?
We do have some muddy spots, but fortunately we have good drainage, so it isn't bad. We always recommend closed toe shoes that can get dirty, rain or shine. People seem to love to come on rainy days, as it is cooler. In the event of lightning, we will close until it is gone.
What varieties of blueberry bushes do you grow?
We grow Tiff Blue, Premier, Climax, and Brightwell.
When did you first open for Pick-Your-Own blueberries?
2011 with 480 bushes. We now have 1600 bushes.
Do you use pesticides on your bushes?
No, we have never used pesticides, herbicides, or insecticides.
Are there chiggers?
Yes, we recommend using bug spray. Chiggers like blueberry bushes. Personally, we use the kind with Deet and spray it only on our shoes and socks.
Are the bushes in the sun?
Yes, full sun, we recommend bringing cold water and any cooling products you might have.
Where are the bushes located?
The bushes are a short walk from the entrance. It's a pretty walk on a shaded wooded path. If you have been to the farm before for our Pumpkin Patch, it is around the corner from where the hayride starts.
Do you have the petting zoo during blueberry season?
No, we do not. The animals live on another farm and are here for our Pumpkin Patch in the fall only.
Is there an entrance fee?
No, you just pay for the blueberries that you pick.
The price is $5.50 per pint that you pick.
Do you have concessions?
Yes, we sell our homemade popsicles, homemade fudge, lemon blueberry cake, and water.
Do blueberries ripen after they have been picked?
Yes! If they are blue or have red and pink, they will ripen at room temperature. The green ones will not ripen.
Are there restrooms?
We have porta-potties and hand washing stations.
