Autumn is fast approaching, and Sweet Berry Farm in Marble Falls is celebrating the season with its 2022 Harvest of Fall Fun, which starts Saturday, Sept. 17, and runs through Nov. 6 (plus some extended season days).

Summer flowers are still in bloom, but they’ll be accompanied by pumpkin patches, scarecrows, and intricate barnyard mazes at the family-owned attraction, 1801 FM 1980. Admission and parking are free; you pay per activity.

Sweet Berry Farm is known for its stellar spring strawberry harvest and its gorgeous summer sunflower picking, but the Harvest of Fall Fun really brings out the best in this slice of cultivated countryside.

Piles of pumpkins and gourds will adorn the property and be for sale to those interested in decking out their own homes in fall fashion.

The farm’s iconic hayride will take passengers across the property and showcase the flowers, fields, and ever-growing seasonal Scarecrow Village. Kiddos (or adults) can even create their own scarecrows at the stuffing station.

Get lost in three uniquely themed mazes. Find the animals in the barnyard maze, the hidden bell in the candy corn maze, or your way through the enormous 4-acre Texas-themed maze.

Take the opportunity to pick the last flowers of summer, which are still going strong after weeks of solid rainfall in August.

Face painting, pony rides, homemade popsicles and ice cream, train rides, a bounce house, and more are open to the farm’s fall visitors. The Pumpkin Grill is open from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on weekends in October serving grilled corn, hot dogs, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, drinks, and chips.
