East Texas Farm Lets You Pick the Blueberries

We’re in a prime place to grow blueberries, and the season is peaking right now.  If you’re looking for a fun family outing on Father’s Day Weekend, take a road trip to this East Texas blueberry farm and come back with a huge bucket full of produce.

Panola Orchard and Gardens is located in De Berry, southeast of Marshall near Elysian Fields.  They grow blueberries, blackberries, peaches, and plums there.  When you’re based in a town named De Berry, you cannot grow asparagus.  You must grow berries, and they do it well.

The owners tell us how it works on their Facebook page.  They said the pick prices are $15/gallon or $2.50/lb for blueberries and $16/gallon or $3.20/lb for blackberries.  Think of the blueberry pies, cobblers, jellies, and salsas we could crank out with a gallon of berries.  Those little ole pints at the grocery store only hold a handful, but this haul will be the size of a milk jug.  And we get to pack up the family and make a day of it.

Texas is so good at giving us ideas for things to do with dad on Father’s Day weekend.  And if he’s not crazy about blueberries, get him a plum.  It’s way better than a neck tie or a fidget spinner.

The blueberry and blackberry picking days and times are Mon-Sat 8:00am-5:30pm, and Sun. 1-5pm.
