On September 29th, Dewberry Farm opens for the season and celebrates ten years of offering clean country “Agri-tainment” to farm-fans who flock there from across the state of Texas. With more than 30 attractions, Dewberry Farm includes an eight-acre Pumpkin Patch, “thoroughbred” Pig Races, Singing Chickens, hair-raising Zip Lines, Punkin’ Hollar with 500 lighted hand-carved pumpkins, and a spectacular eight-acre Corn Maze with trekking-levels for all ages!
In the spirit of election year, this year’s special Dewberry Farm corn maze features Uncle Sam, and his “You CAN Vote!” message. Bring a can of food to vote for your favorite CAN-didate and receive a one dollar token to be used anywhere on the Farm. The goal is to collect 25,000 cans of food to help stock local food banks. In November, the Farm will announce the number of cans raised and the official winner of the Republican and Democrat “corn and beans” face-off.
Also new this year – all aboard a 6,000-pound replica of Southern Pacific Railroad’s famed C.P. Huntington locomotive! The DewVille Express train will blow its whistle throughout the day as it boards up to 80 passengers in four cars for an unforgettable mile-long journey around Dewberry Farm and deep through Christmas Tree Forest.
According to creator and owner of Dewberry Farm, Larry Emerson (aka Farmer Dewberry), “We are extremely excited about the new attractions this season. Kids and adults alike will be thrilled with riding on the “vintage” steam train and we look forward to raising awareness of the importance of voting this election year through the Dewberry Farm “You CAN Vote” campaign. Our goal is to give local food banks a big boost just before the holiday season. Plus it will be fun to tally the CAN-didates’ votes in early November to decide the winner, as determined by voters of all ages who visited the Farm throughout the season.”
Dewberry Farm is open to the public on weekends-only and Columbus Day – Saturdays – 10 a.m. to Dusk and Sundays – Noon to Dusk, September 29th through November 11th. Admission is $12.00 with 50% off opening weekend and the first two weekends in November. Monday through Friday private groups, schools and mom’s groups are welcome by reservation only.
On the day after Thanksgiving, November 23rd, Dewberry Farm will welcome visitors to the back 40 acres of the Christmas Tree Farm. A hayride will take families to the “forest” where they can search for and cut that special tree. Dewberry elves will take care of the tree shaking and baling while kids and parents enjoy taking photos with Santa, farm rides and attractions, custom wreath making and shopping in the Country Store and Sweet Shoppe. No entry-fee to the Farm during the Christmas season.
