The best spots for fruit and veggie picking in the DFW Area

Pick-your-own fruit and vegetable farms are increasingly popular among families seeking a blend of enjoyment and education during their family outings. Instead of opting for the usual supermarket experience, visit these DFW area farms directly for a wide range of fresh produce and to support local farmers. Remember that hours, prices and produce vary by location and season.

The Blase Family Farm utilizes organic methods in their farming practices. The farm provides shaded picnic areas for a delightful day of outdoor harvesting and enjoying snacks and provides mini buckets for little ones to join in the fun. There’s a stunning pathway leading to the blueberry fields, so remember to bring a camera for capturing the beauty! Picking season typically spans six weeks, starting from late May to early July, and then again from September to October for pumpkins, depending on spring weather conditions.
