Although the weather hasn't been on our side here in Texas, we have made every attempt to fill our October with fun fall activities. Our most favorite adventure to take in the Fall is to visit a local family farm and today I'm sharing 10 family friendly farms to visit in Texas. Our family farm day this year was spent at 7 Acre Wood which is in north Houston and we had such a great time. You can visit 7 Acre Wood, and any of the below farms throughout the year as most of them have activities planned for each season. The farms we selected are not listed in any specific order, and the opinions on each are my own. I'm sure there are more amazing farms in Texas that we didn't get to include, and if you know of any please let us know in the comments section below. These are farms that we have previously visited or are on our list to visit in the near future.
1. 7 Acre Wood- Conroe, Texas
Our favorite activity at 7 Acre Wood is the petting zoo, they have the sweetest animals including deer, donkeys, lamas, and ponies and I can't wait to take Atlas every year to see them. The farm owners also do a really great job of keeping the kids entertained and the prices are extremely affordable for an afternoon filled with adventure. They also have putt-putt golf, hay rides, pony rides, paintball, and tons of creative playgrounds for the kids.
2. Mainstay Farms- Ft. Worth, Texas
A college friend and room-mate of mine introduced me to Mainstay Farms. Her family owns and operates this farm, and I luckily had the chance to visit one time during her birthday and it is a blast. I would love to take Atlas to visit their beautiful Christmas tree farm this winter. They have some really great attractions including pedal cars, a jumping pillow, and a flying zipline.
3. Old McDonald's Farm- Humble, Texas
I have never been to Old McDonald's Farm, but I have heard it is a great farm for parents with little ones. They have a pumpkin patch in the fall, a train ride for kids, and a duck pond. If you visit in the spring you may get to see a ton of baby ducklings.
4. Blessington Farms- Simonton, Texas
Some friends of mine at work introduced me to Blessington Farms. You can take your kids to pick their own berries and pumpkins throughout different times of the year. Find the picking schedule here. They also have fall and winter activities for the holiday season. We haven't visited yet, but it is on our list for next year!
5. Dewberry Farms- Houston, Texas
I want to take Atlas to Dewberry Farms for Christmas this year because they have a miniature express train ride that I want to take him on. Atlas is really into trains this year so he would love it.
6. P-6 Farms- Montgomery, Texas
If you are looking to visit a corn maze this Fall, P-6 farms has a great one! They also have berries you can pick yourself in the springtime.
7. Lavender Ridge Farms- Gainsville, Texas
I obviously want to visit this farm because I think it would be so fun to pick our own lavender. I love the smell of lavender and we have this on our list for a May adventure. We are also always looking for great photo opportunities in Texas, and a lavender farm is on our photo opp must do list!
8. Barton Hill Farms- Bastrop, Texas
Just outside of Austin is Barton Hill Farms which was voted one of the best pumpkin patches in Texas by TexTraveler.com. We don't get to visit Austin that often, but Barton Hill Farms is on our list to do one year in the Fall.
9. Love Creek Orchards- Medina, TX
Near San Antonio is Love Creek Orchards where you can pick your own apples and peaches. I have been looking for an apple farm for so long and I can't wait to visit this orchard next August. They also have a pumpkin patch and maple trees if you want to catch some pretty fall foliage!
10. Old Time Christmas Tree Farm- Spring, TX
My parents purchased the most beautiful Christmas Tree from The Old Time Christmas Tree Farm last year and it was so much fun. You can pick and cut down your own tree if you want the full experience of a fresh Christmas Tree. We also took our family Christmas photos here which turned out so cute!
That completes our list of 10 family friendly farms to visit in Texas. If you have visited one of these farms before please feel free to share your experience with us in the comments section below. This space is intended for parents to find fun things to do with their kids in Texas, and if you have any ideas we love to hear them!
Special thanks to 7 Acre Wood for an amazing experience at the pumpkin patch this month, and we hope you enjoy the photos of our trip.
