Notes for September 2021: Autumn is upon us and that means you'd better hurry to get blueberries and peaches; apples are already in full swing. Some crops continue until frost, like raspberries, blackberries, figs, corn and tomatoes. Check your area's crop calendar (see this page) and call your local farms for seasonal specific updates.

See these pages to find a local Apple festival, and other festivals. We have a guide to apple varieties and a guide to peach varieties. Also recipes, canning and freezing directions for apples, blueberries, peaches, tomatoes, corn etc.

Payment: Cash, Check. At Omi's (O-me's) Farm, just outside Garden Ridge, Texas, we have been raising egg laying chickens for over 50 years. Joanita Reed (Omi), nationally acclaimed Tri-Athlete and founder of NBJ School of Swimming, believed in living healthy as well as insuring her animals lived healthy. One huge part of her daily regimen, besides a 4 hour workout, was the regular daily consumption of a 1/2 dozen of her chicken's Pasture Raised eggs. These chickens foraged at will, never knowing the inside of a cage. Her pasture raised eggs tradition continues today under the watchful eye of her daughter, granddaughter and great granddaughters. The only noticeable difference being the size of their flock, which now enables the family to share their eggs with the public. The 30 Acre farm allows the public to walk up to purchase eggs. With retirement looming for the current grandparents, they believe that adding honey bees to the farm is a real possibility in 2017 , making their first honey harvest possible in 2018/19.  *Harvest white table grapes in July and Black Spanish in August. These are black Spanish grapes. good for wine/jelly/juice (have seeds). regardless of what your needs are you should always call before coming out. if you are a wine maker, July 26 may be too early for the sweetest grapes which will come later.
