Whatever the season, Froberg’s Farm has food and fun for the whole family.

Everyone needs a break from the hustle and bustle of city life sometimes. There’s nothing quite like a day spent out in the Texan countryside, lounging in a field of flowers with your loved ones while you eat some freshly-picked strawberries and watching the clouds go by…instead of watching emails piling up in your inbox. Ditch the screens and get outdoors at Froberg’s Farm in Alvin, just in time for their upcoming Fall Festival, opening September 24 and running through November 6. Read on to get all the info on their seasonal and year-round offerings!

What is Froberg’s Farm?

Froberg’s is a 22-acre, family-run fruit and veggie farm which also houses a country store, bakery, and smokehouse on the property. 

Where is Froberg’s Farm?

The Farm is located on 3601 West Hwy 6. in Alvin, Texas 77511. Froberg’s Christmas Tree Farm is located at Hwy 6 and C.R 146, across from the Knights of Columbus.

When can you visit?

All year round! The farm is open seven days a week from 8 a.m.–6 p.m. Seasonal activities like the Fall Festival, Christmas Tree Farm, pumpkin patch and sunflower field are only open during select months. 

What can you do at Froberg’s Farm?

Experience the thrill of the harvest with fruit and vegetable picking throughout the year. Froberg’s self-proclaimed most popular attraction, strawberry picking, is offered January–late May, or if you’re more of a blackberry fan, you can pick those from May–July. Seasonal sunflower picking is also available in one of the farm’s two sunflower fields. 

Froberg’s also offers field trips for school groups or team-building, and now you can take the gang to the corn maze or their upcoming Fall Festival (more deets on that below!). Visit the Christmas Tree Farm to pick up a hypoallergenic tree for the holiday season starting November 25; or, book a photo session there between September 1–December 31 to start prepping those Christmas cards. Through October, you can also book a photo session in the Tree Farm’s sunflower field—no flower-picking allowed in this one, but it offers a beautiful backdrop for pics. 

Can you take dogs to Froberg’s Farm?

No pets are allowed at Froberg’s Farm due to state regulations and good agricultural practices, according to their website. But the rest of the family is invited!

What kind of food can you buy at Froberg’s Farm?

Froberg’s Country Store sells homegrown goods from their and other local farms, and suggests you call ahead before visiting to see what’s available and in season. This fall, you should be able to purchase goodies ready to complete your Thanksgiving menu like fresh cucumbers, okra, kale, cabbage, and collard greens.

At Greak’s Smokehouse, another family business located on the farm, you can purchase homemade jerky, summer and breakfast sausage, or stuffed pork chops to prepare for dinner. You can’t go wrong with your selection here, but may we recommend the jalapeño and cheese venison sausage? Yum. 

Finally, if you’re looking for a sugar fix after all that hearty and healthy food, stop by Nina Froberg’s bakery, offering over thirty five homemade flavors of pie (baked and fried!) and other sweet treats like cookies or seasonal pecan and peanut brittle. Don’t forget to grab a jar of jelly or your favorite fruit preserves for your morning toast while you’re there!

What kind of activities will be offered at the Fall Festival?

What won’t be offered? Hayrides through the corn maze and a pumpkin patch where you can purchase your future jack-o-lanterns. Tons of photo ops throughout the farm. Kids can play on the Berry Fun Land playground, or enjoy some friendly competition with games like Emoji Cannon and plastic duck races (with a bonus: everyone gets to take home a duck!).

If you’re okay with getting your hands a little dirty, you can let your inner treasure hunter free with the Mining Sluice, where you just might find an emerald or arrowhead as you sift through dirt. Afterwards, you can take a walk through the flower garden or down the sunflower trail, or enjoy the calmest rollercoaster ever: the Bee Coaster, a tractor-pulled journey around the farm.

What are the dates and times for the Fall Festival?

Froberg’s annual Fall Festival will be open Monday thru Friday, 9 a.m.–5:30 p.m. for offerings such as the corn maze, Berry Fun Land, the pumpkin patch, and sunflower trail. All other activities will be offered Saturdays and Sundays, 9 a.m.–8 p.m. 

How much does the Fall Festival cost?

Admission is $12 for ages 3 and up (2 and under get in free!). Activities, food, and drink will cost a few dollars extra—exact prices for all of those here.
