P-6 Farms Blooms and Berries Fest

P-6 Farms Blooms and Berries Fest opening weekend was a great muddy Texas adventure! After receiving over a week of downpours we finally experienced a day of sunshine on the opening weekend of the Bloom and Berries Fest at P-6 Farms. The day was filled with excitement as we wandered around the farm, took photos with the sunflowers, and picked blackberries off the vine.

Home to the P-6 Cattle Company where the primary commerce is hay production and raising cattle, the Poole family has created a great rural escape for city slickers alike. I really enjoy visiting places in Texas that are dedicated to teaching the public about Agriculture and open their land to visitors and families to enjoy and experience together.

P-6 Farms is located in Montgomery, Texas. Only an hour drive South-East from Bryan-College Station or 30 minutes to an hour from Houston (depending on your location in Houston). While P-6 Farms is more suited for families with children, Mike and I had a great time pretending to be kids again. From shooting apples out of a cannon to swinging on an oversized porch swing made for giants, we were glad we made the visit.

In the fall, visitors can enjoy P-6 Farms Fall Days and Corn Maze, and in early Spring enjoy an Easter egg hunt and meet the Easter bunny.

Things to know before you go…

  1. You must pre-purchase your tickets online.
  2. Wear comfortable shoes (if it has rained recently you might even bring a pair of mud boots).
  3. Pack your sunscreen and a hat to cover your head, the farm is just that… a farm. While there are some shade trees, many of the activities are in full sun.
  4. Hydrate! In Texas, the summer months are hot and at the farm, again you are in the sun a majority of the day. P-6 Farms has concessions stands and a nice gift shop where you can purchase food and drinks.
  5. No outside food and drinks are allowed. Cash and credit cards are accepted at every pay station throughout the farm.
  6. Plan to leave your furry family members at home. Unfortunately, pets are not allowed.
  7. During the final week of their fall farm days (in November), they host an appreciation weekend and free admission for First Responders, Veterans, Current Military, and Teachers. (I LOVE this!)
