Here, in no particular order, are our favorite places to find fall produce in the Houston area.

Matt Family Orchard | Tomball
Located on 145 wooded acres northwest of Houston, the Matt Family Orchard is entering its 20th year in 2016. They offer a wide ariety of pickable fruits and eggives, including blueberries, blackberries, fig, pears, jujube and Asian persimmon.

Blessington Farms | Simonton
Situated due west of Houston in Simonton, Blessington Farms has become a seasonal favorite for a number of reasons: a pumpkin patch, barrel train rides, hay rides, etc. Yet, it’s the produce we’re here to discuss, and Blessington has strawberries, blueberries and blackberries, and you can pick them directly off of the ine.
Last Organic Outpost | Houston
For city-dwellers looking for great fresh produce, the Last Organic Outpost is really where it’s at. Not only is it coneniently located just off the 10 east of downtown, but it also operates as its own non-profit organization. Also, it’s a great place to bring kids, since it operates as a live, functioning urban garden.
Party Barn Farm | Hockley
This one gets major ups just on its name alone. However, they don’t rely simply on a clever moniker when it comes to putting out great produce. They offer produce you often won’t find at other places, such as beans, winter squash and cucumbers. They are also associated with the national seed bank, which helps keep an inventory of plant seeds in the event of a famine.
