 Reyes Farms/ Reyes Jams and More

Victoria Reyes

Poteet, TX 78065
Home: 830-276-3419, Cell: 210-501-6074

Our family heritage of farming runs deep. The original Reyes farm started over 150 years ago.

Our great-grandparents, grandparents and parents have all made their living off of raising crops and cattle. Our father Richard was a hard-working man that made even the hardest tasks seem easy. He took pride in his work and his crops. Our mother Victoria helped out on the farms, then somehow found energy to come home and make jams and bake goodies to preserve what was harvested.

Now the three Reyes daughters along with their families are keeping the tradition alive. We grow strawberries on a small scale and mom makes her traditional delicious strawberry jam that she has made and sold for over 30 years. Now the grandchildren are helping out and learning the skills necessary to keep the family farming tradition going. Our berries and jam are sold on Facebook, word of mouth and by making a phone call to place an order.

 Mi Ranchito Farm

PO Box 168

Poteet, TX 78065

830-276-0837

We are Diana and Willie Leal Jr. Poteet Strawberry Growers at “Mi Ranchito,” located in the Poteet City Limits.

We are one of the small growers but WE work just as hard for our strawberries as the bigger growers do. This is our third year growing strawberries and our first year to see how our berries do at the Poteet Strawberry Festival. We’ve had ups and downs. Deer ate half our crop, but thanks to God they finally grew back. Then in March, hubby broke his collarbone, requiring surgery and sidelined for two months. We work as a team. When one is down the other carries on. Quitting or giving up on our DREAM is not an option. We move forward. WE give it our ALL.

Not a PICK Strawberry Patch but as soon as we have enough strawberries, we will have them for sale.

Thank you and God bless.

 Lucas James Growers

Felix & Priscilla Castillo
4408 WFM 476
Poteet, TX 78065
210-639-6553

Lucas James Growers ventured into the strawberry farming culture in 2017. Our family grower operation consists of Felix, Priscilla, and our son Lucas James Castillo.

Season after season, we would entertain the idea of growing strawberries. Yet, we never broke ground. Then one afternoon, Ms. Doris Thomas recommended we visit Mr. Will Bates of Five Cousins’ Strawberry Patch. Mr. Bates presented a very encouraging crash course in strawberry cultivation. We walked away from the visit with a smile. That afternoon we attached the tractor to the disc plow and Lucas James Growers was born.

A special thank you to my father, the late Preciliano Medina, for all of your love and support. It was he whom created the name, “Lukey Jam.” Thank you to my uncle Ricardo Martinez for helping man the booth on festival day.

We offer our utmost gratitude to the founding families whom have formed raised bed upon raised bed so that we may continue to enjoy this Poteet Strawberry growing tradition.
