Texas Berry Farms - 7 Best Places to Pick Your Own

May is National Strawberry Month, and we certainly believe in celebrating that kind of thing here in Texas.

Our grocery stores are well-stocked with nature’s berry bounty, and many farmers markets make finding delicious strawberries as easy as, well, pie.

As for blackberries, blueberries and raspberries, Texas is growing plenty of those as well.

By picking them straight off the plant at one of many Texas berry farms!
