There’s nothing like a fresh peach in the summertime. You could take your chances getting handsy with the selection from H-E-B, Whole Foods, or otherwise, or you could go straight to the source at Neal’s Berry Farm.
Located at 21104 Binford Road in Waller outside Houston, Neal’s Berry Farm is a seasonal farm open Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Depending on the season, the farm grows thornless blackberries, peaches, figs, Muscadine grapes, nectarines and vegetables.
From now until the end of August, Neal’s invites visitors to pick their own fruit and explore their bountiful supply of produce. Admission to the farm is priced at $3. If picking your own fruit and/or vegetables, you must arrive before 12:30 pm. From there, prices vary on what you pick – $5.50 per pound of peaches.
Furthermore, visitors can pick from vegetables ($2.50 per pound), zinnias ($3 for all you can fit in house solo cup), and sunflowers ($1 per stem).
The farm is open from 7:30 am to 1 pm. Neal’s highly encourages those to check its Facebook updates before visiting. When picking, visitors must arrive at least 30 minutes before closing. No pets are permitted.
If peaches aren’t your preferred produce, you can peruse our roundup of 10 strawberry, blueberry, and other fruit fields to pick from in the Houston area.
Furthermore, you can wade into a sea of sunflowers this season at P-6 Farms. Recently, the farm in Montgomery has opened their gorgeous field to the public with sunflowers as far as the eye can see! Alternatively, you wander out to Chappell Hill outside of Houston to explore a luscious lavender field.
