Celebrate autumn at Sweet Berry Farm’s Harvest of Fall Fun

After a scorching summer, there’s more reason than ever to welcome autumn, and no place celebrates the season better than Sweet Berry Farm near Marble Falls. Its annual Harvest of Fall Fun truly pulls out the stops and checks all the fall family fun boxes, making it a long-time must-stop for Highland Lakes residents and visitors alike. 

In 2023, Harvest of Fall Fun runs from Sept. 23 through Nov. 5. Admission and parking are free — you’ll simply pay for the activities you choose. 

With almost a dozen things to do, it’s a question of where to start. Take an old-fashioned hayride around the scenic farm, challenge one (or all) three mazes, make your own wildflower bouquet, paint a pumpkin, stuff your own scarecrow, and don’t forget to scour the vast pumpkin patches for one or more to take home. 

On October weekends, you can order a hot dog, grilled corn, or a peanut butter and jelly sandwich from the Pumpkin Grill. You can bring in your own food as well for a picnic.
