Sweet Berry Farms Review

My whole experience at the farm was substantial. I did enjoy all of the activities I took part in but most of them aim for the smaller, younger kids that visit. I recommend that everyone, at least once in their lives, experience the fun of the farm because it’s easily enjoyable for the whole family, and it radiates some really nice positive, laid back vibes.

A few weeks ago, I got to enjoy a nice comforting few hours at the well known ‘Sweet Berry Farms,’ a strawberry farm/pumpkin patch that offers a variety of different activities to do during the fall. The activities range from things that are suitable for small children, to activities that are enjoyable for teens and adults. 

The farm is located in Marble Falls, which is a 50 minute drive from Cedar Park, but trust me, it’s worth the time. I got to experience the pumpkin patch on a Sunday rather than Saturday. I would much prefer Sunday because some of the workers told me the mass of people declines as they transfer from Saturday to Sunday over the weekends. They are also open on weekdays and I assume that the crowds are even smaller. 

My family and I parked without any parking fees, and there were many parking spots available. The walk from the parking lot to the activities is very short, and not at all an inconvenience.  

The first activity that can be seen is the flower garden, which holds many rows of bright, vibrant colored flowers, ranging from roses to marigolds to daisies. As I walked through the arched entrance woven with vines I was given scissors and a plastic vase, and was told I could pick as many flowers as I wanted for a bouquet, as well as enjoy the sights of many different butterflies throughout the garden. The whole experience is only four dollars per ticket so the whole family can enjoy. 

As I walked out of the charming garden I was greeted by pumpkin patches on either side of me which created my way in a feeling of fall. 

The next activity that I came to was the ‘Texas Maze’ which is the big corn maze that is most suitable for older children and adults. It is eight dollars per person and everyone is given a punch card with different Texas’ city names on them and is expected to go in order of your card to find your way through the maze. As I wound my way through the halls of corn I came across stations where I could get my card punched and sent off again to find the end of the mighty labyrinth of corn. As I departed from the maze, I was rewarded with a nice, cool soft drink. 

Taking a break from the games and activities, I walked through a tunnel underneath a bridge that led me to the farther side of the farm. This part is home to the friendly goats and horses which I was able to pay 25 cents to feed. The goats were enclosed in a pen that included a wooden bridge that looped around the pen and was built into the trees for them to climb, and again I was able to walk under the bridge and admire the animals as they went about their day. 

The workers at ‘Sweet Berry Farms’ are all very kind and made conversation with me as I went on my explorations of the property. The atmosphere is exactly what I would expect from an exciting and busy place such as this one. 

As I migrated over to the horses I was overwhelmed with the love I felt for the animals. When I walked up to the pen they immediately came to greet me, laying their heads in my arms and hoping for me to pet them. The horses were so happy and content to have someone love on them, and they were so calm the whole time. It was so hard for me to walk away. 

The horses are much bigger than the goats and I noticed the smaller children were not as attracted to them as they were to the others, so if I was accompanied by a smaller child I would steer clear of the horses unless they were willing to socialize with them, and it was advised that the smaller kids not be allowed to feed the horses because their hands are so much tinier. 

After all of the walking and games I had been a part of, I decided to indulge in a sweet treat, pumpkin ice cream. This delectable ice cream is homemade at the farm but I was told they do buy the pumpkin flavoring, as the pumpkins they have aren’t for cooking with. I was very impressed with the ice cream and highly recommend it, especially at it’s $2.75 price. 

Everything at this farm was so inexpensive and affordable which is so different than some other places. There was no parking or entry fee, you could just walk in and pay for the activities that you wanted to do. Most other options have an entry fee and charge you for tickets that include activities you may not want to be a part of, but with ‘Sweet Berry Farms’ everything was up for you to decide.

I recommend that everyone, at least once in their lives, experience the fun of the farm because it’s easily enjoyable for the whole family, and it radiates some really nice positive, laid back vibes.
