“wasted drive”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

We went to the farm on Oct. 19, 2013 & my kids were really looking forward to it. The farm was extremely busy & when we first pulled up to the gate we were directed to the opposite side of the road from the pumpkin patch. We had to park really far away from the entrance. There was no handicapped parking of any kind available in the lot we were in. We were with my elderly mother who cannot walk very far distances so we had no other choice than to have her wait in the car for myself & my kids. This was not a good start to the day. The pumpkin patch was quite a walk through the tunnel under the road & we opted to not even go over there, as we would have had to haul the pumpkin back with no wagon or anything. My kids were upset about having to leave their grandma in the car, a long walk even from a restroom, so we opted to just pick flowers & head on back. I observed most people in our parking lot returning with no pumpkins, either. It was a real let down. I would suggest that next year the farm have pumpkins to purchase on both sides of the road, & to let people know ahead of time that there is no handicapped parking. Anyone in a wheelchair would have certainly been left out, & it really stunk to have my mom wait behind instead of participating. Shame on ya'll.

“Strawberrys to Pumpkins”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

We visited here in March 2013 & the Grand-kids, 3 year old twin girls, 12 year old girl, & 15 year old boy, to pick strawberrys. It was a first time experience & they all had fun. After picking we fed the goats & they all jumped on the balloon things. Had strawberry lemonade & popsicles which was very good. That night we had strawberrys & they asked if those were the ones they had picked. They enjoyed them even more.

We took the now 4 year old twins to the pumpkin patch in Oct 2013 & they had a ball seeing all the different pumpkins. They loved jumping on the balloon things again.

All in all this is an awesome place.

“Omigosh!”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

The Sweet Berry Farm was a blast! We took our 4 yr-old granddaughter for the opening weekend of pumpkin season. No berries in October, but so many different kinds of pumpkins and gourds to see, touch, hold and buy - it was super. I love the fact that there's no parking or entrance fee. You only pay for the things you choose to do. All attractions are individually priced, and very, very affordable. Families were having a great time. The flower field was ablaze in color, and available to pick yourself to take home. Our granddaughter loved the Berry Bounce, a huge trampoline that is raised like a pillow top. She enjoyed the hayride, the face painting, and the barrel train. We walked along the area where the next crop of strawberries have already been planted, under arbors where an odd array of gourds are growing, and alongside the interesting and lively goats that live at the farm. It was so much fun, and we are definitely going back!

“great for a nice day”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

We took the kids out during strawberry season. It was pretty muddy as it had been raining a lot lately. We found about a box full of strawberries when we called it quits. We went soon after opening time and there were already tons of people out there. There are picnic tables and they do have hand sanitizer available. You can bring your own food. They have a few things available for purchase, but I don't think they had whole meals. There were some horses that you can pet at a fence. The other attractions I didn't see while we were there.

“Great place, great people, and absolutely great food”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

Sweet Berry Farm is a great place to get your vegetables and fruits. You cut them yourselve and they are absolutetly delicious. The folks at the farm are very nice, and their home made icecream is delicious, can't miss it. Definitely a great place to go if you are in Marblefalls or near it.
