Dewberry Farm offers fall fun for the family

HUNTSVILLE — Hop, skip and jump down to Brookshire this weekend for the opening weekend of Dewberry Farm.

The farm, known for down and dirty family fun, is open weekends from Sept. 29 to Nov. 11. Farm activities include a pumpkin patch, pig races, corn maze, wagon rides, ziplines and much more.

Regular admission is $12 per person with special $6 admission for Sept. 29 and 30 and Nov. 3, 4, 10 and 11. Included with admission is a wagon ride to the pumpkin patch, the corn maze, flower patch photo ops, a cow train ride, Giant Roller Slides, the barnyard, rubber duck races among other farm fun.

There is an additional charge for gemstone mining, pony rides, face painting, zip lines and the DewVille Express Train Ride.

Pumpkins are sold for 50 cents per pound and food to feed the goats is 25 cents. If none of these things suit your fancy, or if you've done Dewberry Farm in the past and are looking for something new – you're in luck.

This year will see the addition of the CP Huntington Train, a mile long ride around the farm and through the Christmas tree forest. The new Spring Town allows young ones to ride on 10 antique spring ponies, space shuttles and more. There's also a large wooden train for kids to play on this year named the Armadillo Choo-Choo.

Dewberry Farm is open weekends from 10 a.m. Saturday to sundown and from noon to sundown on Sundays.

Coming on Oct. 8 will be the Dewberry Farm pig races. This is the swine version of the Kentucky Derby, set for 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 8.

Admission to the Farm is free starting the Friday after Thanksgiving. Christmas tree buyers will receive free activity token based on the price of the tree purchased. Santa Claus will also be available to take Christmas requests and pose for photos on weekends from the day after Thanksgiving to Christmas. Admission to see Santa is $3 and parents can take photos for free. Additional photos taken by Mrs. Claus cost $5.

Dewberry Farm is located at FM 362 and Morrison Road in Brookshire, near Katy.
