A Little Field Trip

We took a little trip to Froberg's Farm in Alvin, Tx. the other day. We haven't been in a few years and it just keeps getting better and better. They have fresh strawberries you can pick yourself from January through May, a huge assortment of fruits and veggies, tons of candy, homemade pralines, all kinds of nuts and beans, local honey, jams, seasonings, etc. It's such a fun place to visit and shop. 

Here's our haul from this trip...



Fried pies, dried pineapple bits, jalapeno sausage, homemade pralines and raspberry jalapeno jam. Everything is very reasonably priced too. Those famous fried pies are only $2!

Actually, this is how many pies we bought...


Yum!








These homemade pralines are the best!



They have different fruits and veggies you can pick yourself, depending on what time of year it is. We were there in January and people were in SHORTS picking fresh strawberries in the huge fields. Welcome to Texas, y'all. ;) 







The strawberry fields are huge!




 They also have Greak's Smokehouse that sells the most delectable sausages, cheeses, jerky and boudan, to name a few. 

Just look at this sausage! It was SO good!








Of course they have a bakery...



And a snack bar...




The produce is amazing...







Look at all the candy! 



Pick your favorite, kettle corn or caramel corn...





A ton of seasonings, marinades, etc. 










Anyone need quail eggs? Or turkey eggs? They've got you covered...






Here's a link to the Frogerg's Farm website:


It's the neatest place. In the fall, they have a corn maze, and you can also pick your own flowers, experience a hay ride, and visit the indoor pumpkin patch. At Christmas time, they have a holiday festival which includes photos with Santa, lighted hay rides, face painting, glitter tattoos, and even cookie decorating. 

If you're local to the Houston area, I'd definitely put it on your must-visit list. Hope y'all enjoyed me taking you along on this little field trip. :) 

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Don't you just love when you find a place like that? We have a few different very similar places here...no strawberries, but peaches, apples and citrus (duh). They are fun, no matter how old you are!

    Warm hugs,

  2. There is a place similar to that in North Georgia. My sweet 96 year old neighbor goes up with her daughter and told me I just have to go this spring.

  4. We have a place like that too and there's so much temptation! Things taste better when you buy them from a farm stand type place. Don't you think?

    Hey, I'm in Lockhart at my dad's and he has HEB...what should I buy?
